41chevy Posted September 30, 2011 Share Posted September 30, 2011 I went to the body supply shop I've been dealing with since I was 16 for paint for my 1980 R.It just came back from Weldbilt getting the chassis stretched and prepped for the body. I've grown very fond over the past 20 or so years of PPG Del Star Acrylic Enamal. Three coats @ 60 PSI, come back in the morning and assemble or two tone it. (My trucks are all white with orange roof and fenders) Plus it shines like a diamond in a goats ass. I found that I need to replace most of my PPG reducers and hardener, use their Euro Barrier with the "NEW EURO FRIENDLY" stuff and change from 3 coats @60 to 5 coats @30. PPG changed the formula to conform with Euro Blue Regulations. If I use my stock of older supplies the top coat may or may not harden fully for an extended period.Thank you EPA, O Wammy and The European Union for making my world a little greener and my face a little redder.
