and the saga continues...May there be light at the end of this tunnel.
Finally getting some paint on some things. The winter has been so cold and with zero humidity. The past two days it warmed up and I was able to do some spraying.
looks good Don what color is the body
You're one step closer Don.
Looking very nice Don. That will make a happy customer
Spencer, the owner wants it maroon or as close to the original "red" he can get. I'm stepping back when it comes to choosing the paint. The stuff he's looking at is in the $800.00 per gallon range. Its hard to be comfortable dealing with expensive paint...
Don what type of paint do you normally use.
I can't wait to see all three of our Fordors parked in a row. Black, Green, Maroon.
Bill, the black on this car is said to be the "blackest" paint you can get. Its DelFleet polyurethane code base 9000 single stage. I like it for sanding and cut and polish. It REALLY is a pitch black color. I also like how it covers and lays down, makes for a little easier job. But, I'm no expert on paint or painting cars. I'm sure others will have a different opinion, and that's ok.
I have always used PPG single stage paints. Base coat clear coat hasn't come to be with me yet.
I'd be willing to add a fourth car to the line up. Four Fordors has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?
Eric, What color is your Fordor? Just wondering as I have a '27 Fordor that is a light colored maroon, kind of a wine color. I don't like it and think the paint supplier mixed it wrong, but I'm stuck with it now.
We're in the process of installing a rebuilt engine and new upholstery on it now. You can see a picture of our Fordor on my profile picture.
Eric, do you think our forefathers would have foreseen four Fordor Fords at the forthcoming festival?
Don that is looking great. Looking forward to more photos.
I used the color code in the encyclopedia for Windsor Maroon. http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/P-R.htm Yes the PPG paint does run about $800.00 per gallon but it is single stage. You can see the color on my profile page.
John Z, that color is Fantastic! I had a difficult time deciding between maroon and green for ours.
I should clarify that I'm using the Delfleet black on the interior trim pieces and other smalls. The body will be painted with PPG Concept DCC 51068 Windsor Maroon. The fenders and splash aprons will be Concept DCC 9300. Both single stage acrylic urethane.
John Zibell, can you confirm the paint code number that you used? I'm assuming the PPG 51068 is the same color. I would appreciate any help you can give me on it. Thx.
