    Actually, you meant to say that you "...could NOT care less."

    Think about it...

    My dad once rolled his 1950 late at night while drunk. Came back up on the wheels and he drove it home. Had a sort of lived-in patina look on the roof after that He wasn't proud of the look and the cops wondered where he did it.

    I realize this is an olde thread, I also realize peeps don't like patina, some do...but I'm looking for a spin on this topic. My truck has an oxidized, almost patina'd hood and roof, and I'd like to match the sides to it. Any ideas how to go about that? Should I just compound it until the paint is thin (it's not clear-coated), and let nature take it's course?

    Cant believe I read this whole thread, back in the day faggot was fighting words and way back when gay was happy fun as having a gay old time and patina was in reference to works of art and there condition. So basicly just killed an hour of my short life, bottom line is do what you want. The worst part is that I posted.

    Take a car you love, cover it with a canvas tarp through a wet winter, and a hot summer. Return home and remove the cover because you can finally take her for a spin. You will be amazed at how dull your paint can become.

  23. You new guys have no idea the shitstorm that followed the original posting of the FAKE plastic 37ish coupe and its FAKE old paint. I guess maybe 10 years ago.

    But gee, thanks for bringing it up again.

    If you can't tell if a hot rods paint job is new or 50 years old, are you fake?
