Primered it and sprayed it with 2 quarts of satin black rustolium. 67 Avanti
Yes, it's a '67, but it may as well be a '64. Looks like a pretty darn nice job. I'd have to think that this is the only Avanti in the world with satin paint. Good goin.'
An Avanti with a blower on it.
Thanks bro! I think he will be happy with it.
smooth job you did,not bad at all
It's a good grocery getter
How long did it take to dry? what did you have the thin it with?
What 'til your dad finds out!
I like, an Avanti with a blown sbc, should get to grocery store and back pretty fast.
That's what I'm thinkin'...
Best put a few coats of clear on it before shit hits the fan...
I thinned it with denatured alcohol approx 10% and it took about 6 to 8 hours to dry. I've been a lot of fast cars but this is the only 1 that scares the crap out of me. Yes it took awhile for me to convince my dad to paint satin black but I think it looks good.
Ahh, why Rustoleum? It's a fiberglass car no?
It's fiberglass. It's my first paint job no need to spend tons on paint. It looks pretty dang good too. I did use ppg shop line primer. I got my spray gun at harbor freight for $50 on sale.
I've used Acetone to reduce it.
Why did you paint a Avanti with cheap paint?? It deserves a real paint job, it's not a Ford you know.
Very nice work, I'm impressed! I'm using an industrial paint, Gillespie Coatings and Martin-Seniour hardener, I'm going for a gloss finish.
You go wash out your mouth with soap, young man!
On second thought...you go get me a switch off that there willow tree.
Don't you look at me like that...why, I'll...boy, you're gonna get it...
Acetone or Mineral spirits is what is recommended on the can. Where did you come up with the denatured alcohol idea ?
Or even worse, a GM belly button car...Rock on with Studebaker!!
All yall guys baggin on rustoleum, need to find the youtube videos of Ed Roth talking to VonDutch.. There's eight of them. In one of them Dutch tells Big Daddy that 1-shot is good, but rustoleum is just as good for lettering and striping.
Tells me the ole rustoleum might be up to the job.. But what do I know..
Like the man said probably the only satin stud in the world.... probably not the last
Well not the only satin black blown sbc stude, but maybe the only avanti .

I used denatured alcohol because that's what I had...
I painted a car once with Rustoleum Regal Red... Thinned with laquer thinner. Drove it about 2 hours after I sprayed it. Paint held up good for the 2 years I had the car
