    I'm taking my '66 Coronet 500 to a buddy whose son-in-law is a professional detailer, who specializes in paint correction on nearly any type of paint. Many detailers won't touch single-stage enamels, because so many vehicles have been basecoat/clearcoat since the early 1980s, and most simply have no experience with other-than pristine new paint jobs to work with. Mine was painted in 1985 with single-stage enamel, which has held up beautifully, but is showing its age a bit these days. I'll post before and after pics after the car gets done on January 22nd. I'll divulge the cost afterwards.

          It’s funny to me but these young people can’t fathom single stage paint. Don’t know about it and won’t touch it.

          Alot like carburetors and chokes. They just remove the choke or wire it open and deal with it till the engine warms up. It doesn’t have to be like that guys!

              I had a great paint and detail guy up in San Jose, CA. But since I moved to LA I have yet to find someone I can trust. In my experience, paint makes a car look good, but detailing makes it looks spectacular!

                A little before/after action from today. You can see the water spots on the "before" on the hood and decklid. Gone! More pics tomorrow, as my phone was out of juice.

                    Mine was painted in 1966 & after a little bit of hand rubbing and wax it really shines nicely.

                      Here are some "after" pics. To say this is night and day is an understatement. There were a number if water stains on the hood and deck. The whole job took right at five hours.

                          Beautiful ‘66. My Chevy buddy is bugging me to replace my rallye wheels with torque thrust wheels. I WILL NOT show him your photo.

                            I've done Chroma-One on a few cars, it's a single-stage urethane. On a solid color, you can't beat it.
