Painting Volvo 122S with toplac

Post by Govolvo on July 19th 2012, 9:16 am

Hi guys,

I'm going to paint my '69 Volvo 122S. I'm using a fender as my test panel.
I've read a lot about Brightside and rustoleum, but here in Adelaide-Australia those paints aren't available.
So now I'm experimenting with Toplac (same factory as Brightside).
Toplac is available in 12 colours and as I wanted to repaint the Volvo in the original colour I had to mix several Toplac colours.
On my blog volvo-122s.blogspot.com.au are some pictures of the experiment.
Is there anybody here who has used Toplac ? I'm still looking for the perfect mix with Penetrol and thinner.
At the moment I'm using a 3:2:1 mix (paint:penetrol:thinner)

Thanks,
Marc

Need to see some pics. I have always wanted a 122s, but have never come across one.

If I had to drive a European car, it would be a Volvo.

Are those original colors which you're using on the engine and fan and stuff?
