Acrylic Paint

Acrylic Paint

Dear friends, I am lookin for a XH FHC but presently owning a Healey MK III BJ8 since 1970. A renewal of the painting is about to be made. The professional people are proposing a acrylic painting, with a finishning vernish coat? What do you think of this solution ? I want a nice look, but not a concours one; but woulf like to keep the classic car value. Best thanks for your analysis. Regards to all - Claude Lepage, Paris

I would not recommend "base coat - clear coat". It looks great but if you get a scratch, it's difficult to correct. Better to use one of the modern systems such as 2K Spies Hecker which is baked after spraying and can be polished and touched up. I used it on my XK 140 and it is excellent. Of course if you really want to go for originality, then use Duco but I certainly would not recommend it. Best of luck. - Peter Fielding .South Africa, '55 XK140, '64 E Type.
