Hey just found the site and I have a few questions.

Post by Reebz on November 23rd 2009, 9:19 pm

Hey just found the site, a bunch of good info here.
Hey I have a 70 Buick Skylark that I want to paint, roll it in John Deere Blitz Black or Rustolum Semiglass Black. The body is rust free and straight minus door dings. I plan to do a panel at a time.
I plan to follow this guys methods http://rollyourcar.com/method.aspx (unless you have better advice)

I have a few questions first:
1) Is this paint OK on fiberglass? The front clip is going to be fiberglass (street strip car). The fiberglass guy had never heard of painting a car with these paints.
2) How do these semi-gloss paints clean up or feel? I lack the proper paint terminology to say this, but what I mean is when you paint a wall flat and rub it you get a shiny spot and it feels like chalk. Dirt and dust seem to adhere to it.
I will switch to white if I cannot get the “look” I want in black.
I might sand down the trunk lid this weekend and see what happens.
Thanks Dave

oh sweet.. a buick!! What you gonna run for an engine?

This paint is basically what used to get sprayed in the 80's - just in basic colors. It shines up as good as paint did back then, which I find superior to 3 stage paints. My '93 cavy looks much better then my 2002 cavy or my 2000 buick

Semi gloss is the same as any other semi gloss - thats whats on my bottom panels for easy repairs. Never rolled it, but even spraying it like I did its hard to get even

Being a buick though.. I just have to suggest using safety yellow with black stripes - GSX style!

Thanks for the reply Robo.
I put a 455 in it the goal is mid 11's. Thanks I did not realize it is hard to get even. I might try the deck lid see what happens and if all else fails go white.

being that both of those paints are enamel they will be "flexible" enough for that fiberglass front end. Your front clip will be "moving" around when you blast down the track at 120 MPH and the the last thing you want is that paint cracking from the stress.
I agree with Robo, yellow and black would be killer on your car Very Happy
