Hi guys, ok So my 1952 Buick exterior paint needs some work. It has the 60 year old mother nature patina. I am on a budget so I can't get a pro paint job done. My plan is to go with the old patina look for now. As I was sanding down the rough rust spots and chips with some Scotchbrite pads and sand paper, I noticed that it was lightening up the dark rust spots and making it easier on the eyes. So this got me thinking. Why not paint the car with a similar factory color using a rag to spread and rub in the the color evenly around the whole car? This way The color matched color will be evening out the rust areas by bringing it back closer to what the un-rusted paint looks like. This was just a thought. I have not tried it. BUT, as soon as I get time and a get a color match I will post some photos of the progress. If anyone has tried this or has seen it done before, let me know if you have any tips.
