How much did that cost per gallon if you don't mind me asking? I'm considering Glasurit SS if I paint my wagon black.

Itís code 52. They had it listed as Signal Red but itís the same code.

It was not cheap. Just the gallon of paint was $850. But honestly you can get by with a lot less. So far for painting basically two fenders as test panels and then both tail light housings Iíve used about 8 ounces of mixed. Iíve never used this paint before. When I painted the hood, fenders, and doors on this car in 2006 I bought two quarts of Omni and almost ran out. This stuff covers 1000x better and Iím going to guess Iíll have more than half of it left, even taking into account that my so so painting skills and horrible painting environment means Iíll have to redo at least part of it :-)

Thanks. Good to know for when I ever get around to repainting my '69 Malibu. The Dupont Chromabase on it now was supposed to be a match for 52 Garnet Red but IMO is a little off.

IIRC Signal Red is what it was called on the Oldsmobile. Same thing as Garnet Red

As usual, Andy is right
If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks, it needed to be replaced anyway.

I have to keep reminding myself this isn't a Z16 convertible, Evening Orchid Camaro, or factory 1966 SS427 and get on with it.

Re: Convertible Progress Thread

It didnít come out as good as I was hoping. I had a lot of orange peel. I though I had gun settings and technique down after practicing, but no such luck.

Anyway, I had counted on this, which is why I went with single stage, so I could color sand. I tested in a few places with 1500, 2000, and 3000, and it is definitely fixable.
