I am about to pick up my wagon that had a bunch of body work done. It has some flames that were done by a friend that passed away a few years ago. My idea is to save them by taping them up, prepping and shooting the body with black and then clear coating the whole thing. Is this feasible? Its not going to be a show car by any stretch just a tow car and driver. I have never painted a car before and I'm trying to find a local painter working on the side or what ever. Right now I can't afford the local shops so if I don't find some one I'm going to give it a go. Curious about what type of paint to buy and what type of prep to do on the remaining paint on the car. The rear quarters, tailgate, and all four lower doors have been fixed and sitting in primer. Like I've said I have not seen it yet so these are pre body work. If you are fairly close (MD or near by state) and would like to tackle it give me a shout. Thanks, Phil Just thought of another option, tape the flames and spray it flat/semi flat black.
