Orig Paint dilemma

Hey guys. Just wondering what I should do. I have a 67 SS Tahoe Turq. w/ its orig. paint, but its scratched a little (all orig body, no rust at all. Just 1 deep scratch and a few that won buff out) I dunno if I should repaint over a survivor body & paint. It just bugs me knowing about those blemishes. Should I swallow my pride, paint it, or get touch up paint. Like I said its orig. body and i'm afraid if I dont cover this one big scratch it may rust. Alsol, the chrome has been discoloring on the bumpers (not so shiny) should I rechrome or is there some type of a miracle wax? Lastly, how do I get former, non-orig stripe goo off the sides (atrleast I dont think the stripes were orig. fdidnt find the buioldsheet yet, but was peeled off before I got it. They were white stripes on the lower pas\rt of body from front to rear) I am intending on showing this car and having it scored for originality (dunno how that goes about the rules?) thanks and appreciate it

Where on the car is the damage? Acrylic Lacquer is still available through online sales and it would take some work to get a good match but a skilled painter with lacquer and tinting experience could do a repair if your paint is in good condition. I'd check into ordering up some color with some extra toners to tint for a good match, find someone who is willing to do the job right and tint and test for a good color match. Blending lacquer isn't very difficult and some areas of the car are easier to work than others. I wouldn't repaint if it's a good survivor-original paint says a lot for how well the car has been maintained. Bob
