Does anyone know of a gold that I can use?

Post by KISSfan1977 on August 1st 2010, 11:58 pm

I am fixing to buy paint for my '79 Formula Firebird, I am wanting to do white as a base, and gold as the stripe at the bottom. Does anyone know of a gold color? Also, can I use other paint beside rustoleum? What do you recommend?

The metalflake paints are much more difficult to use. It has been done, but it takes a different technique.

There are other brands besides Rust-Oleum that you can use. Many places such as Ace Hardware have their own store brand of Rust-Oleum type paint as well as Brightside paint is another one that is commonly used for roll on paint jobs. Make sure that the brand you pick is oil base and not water base. You might want check to see if you can get a custom mix using one of the store brand paints or try and custom mix the color yourself. I am in the process of painting a second car with a custom I mix I have done on my own using the Rust-Oleum brand. The only drawback to the custom color is you can't get it in spray cans to get the hard to reach places.

Thanks for the replies! I will look into the Ace hardware paints today! I am just wanting to paint the stripe at the bottom on the side of the car, so there are no really hard to reach places. I may do the whole car in rustoleum, and try the bottom of the door in Ace paint!
