Re: Paint your car!

I did my painting back in 1980 with lacquer because it dried fast. Bugs had to be quick. I painted a lot of parts hanging from the kids swing set. Did have one fender come loose in the process so had a mess of dirt and grass to remove. Paint technology has passed me by.

Thanks for the input. What is strange, last week a few times I was able to do a word search the "old way" and it worked fine then didn't. It does not appear that when I use the Google method that I get all the results I did with the old way but may but may be my imagination.

When you say “deck”, are you referring to the metal floor of the roadster body? My body doesn’t have that metal floor. Maybe the kit is one size fits all.
