    M2 Concept paint on @002

    The car looks GREAT, 👍 congrats the pearlesant color is generally applied as a “mid-coat”, that meaning as a mid-coat in a tri-coat system. ( solid color base coat, mid-coat w/pearlesant type color, followed by clear coats ) while one can add “pearl” to the final clear coats, generally try to stay away from putting pearl in clear, much eaisier to apply pearl coat uniformly as a base mid-coat, base/mid coats dry much faster and have better “sag” or run control than clear coats, then follow with clears. If pearl is in clear and one gets sags or runs in the clear, the pearl will show distortion of pearlesant color, and sanding out the runs will dissort the pearl, and will be visable forever, even if you get the surface of the clearcoat smooth. Sorry if this got a bit too “wordie” but hope it might help one to understand how a tri-coat system is applied. The other tri-coat system is the old “candy-apple” colors, that is done with a metalic color base, a tinted color mid coat mixed with basecoat binders, followed by traditional clearcoats

    notice too: top 1/2of that M2 Concept is matted clearcoat which adds to color "flop" interesting for me to read comments on "paint" jobs, matching etc from a retired tech paint rep,,,

      Well I live in Los Angeles, but I also spend a lot of time in Connecticut and that's where I have room for old cars. You can email me at michaelmccullers@gmail.com.

    matching numbers ?

    recently purchased '68 1600-2. (vin 1561418) previous owners (2) known, do not believe engine was ever replaced, heavy grease/grim kinda supports that, BUT engine number does not match VIN. Is it possible to be oem with different numbers? one other question, is the oem front "embossed" hood molding available from any supplier, anywhere? Thanks for any input, Karl
