I built my 36 20 years ago, I painted it flat black, it was a seldom seen colour at the time, kinda happened by accident, my painter taught school, gave me an awesome price if he could teach on my truck. Called me one morning to have a look at what they'd done, mixed up some base coat full of metalflake and played. I loved it, convinced him not to clear it, against his advice, it stayed the way it was and more or less has always been a hit. Now, though, it is turning white in places and resists cleaning up, it was pinstriped by "Boots" in exchange for work done on his car, and now, years later, it needs a refresh badly, but I am afraid to touch it, and Boots is dead, I can never get my truck back if I change it. Trouble is, I love the truck, and if I repaint it, restripe it, I feel its a decision I may regret. I love the 20 year old look, but the paint is sun damaged and really needs some attention. How many of you face this with an old hot rod?
