Hi, My charger is in the shop right now getting made ready to be registered in germany. They do everything from regular service to complete restaurations. Well my car has some paint issues like surface rust on the hood, passenger side door paint slightly off and smaller spots around the car. I want to keep the original paint and just correct it to a level where the average joe on the street wont notice imperfections. They told me its an old paint with different indegrients than modern day paint. According to them you cant mix modern day paint with the old original one if you want good results. If i wanted a good result i would either have to source the original old factory paint or what they would suggest me to do perform a 15k paint job. Well of course thats what they suggest me to do but i wont do it. - 15k for a paint job is just insane, despite might the price for a high end job in my area. i dont know actually. - This car is a daily driver so it would depreciate pretty fast - It would not be the original paint anymore - Everything behind that shiny paint would still be 50 years old unrestored - I could do lots of useful mods for 15 grand if i wanted Anyway. What do you guys think about the statement from the shop about you cant mix new paint with the old original paint? And if this is true, can i still buy the original paint with the original ingredients? if so where? Can anyone tell me how my color is exactly called? I've attached pictures of my fender tag and the car, also a few imperfections so you know which exact color it is.
