The guy who sold me this brand of trunk paint - Dupli Color - said no clear coat needed.

Has anyone used this brand and if so what is your experience with it - did it need top coating?

I bought some GM restoration trunk paint at a swap meet before my car was finished. It was awesome, until I ran out
. I finished up using the Dupli-color stuff and I thought it was vastly inferior compared to the GM paint. It didn't hold up well, and didn't match at all. Also not as many "splatters" as the GM stuff.

On our '71, we did the same as Gene. And, yes, I personally think it's important to seal it with a good clear polyurethane.

Yeah, but if you dont seal all the leaks, even the poly gives it up
.

Oh and Rich, to avoid the hassle of buying body shop clay, please tape newspaper all around the trunk area, EXCESSIVELY, before you shoot the poly. In aerosol form thats stuff is real "floaty", and I always prefer to shoot it outdoors, I got a nice poly haze on my rear deck lid.


Damn rookie at this resto stuff n learning the hard way SO YOU DONT HAVE TO!
