I stopped by the local auto paint store today and talked with them about painting my 56 Handyman. The guy there said there is very little difference between single stage paint and base coat clear coat paint as far as the end result. I'm still about 6 months from painting the car but I wondered what most of you think. I haven't painted a car for almost 30 years so this is new territory for me. The car is going down to metal before the paint and I plan on using SPI primmer and clear if I use 2 stage. The car is not going to be a show car, just a driver, but I would still like it to look good. Thanks for the input.
