    Not sure if this has been brought up on this thread, but if you follow any of the concours car shows they now have a barn find class.

    Visited the Gilmore car museum in Michigan yesterday and they have one building dedicated to "barn finds" and trust me they had plenty of patina.

    How about trying some Turtle Wax on a small hidden test area?

    No, the more you rub on it the more green comes off on the towel.

    That's bound to be the reason for a lot of us, me included. I'm doing my '68 F250 Camper Special a little at a time. I've been doing it since '98 and I'm about to send it to Wheel Service in Petersburg, Va for front end work and rear springs.

    The seat is original, but cracked up, so it'll get a new cover, but the paint is going to be just what it is now, just buffed down with scotchbrite and shot with satin clear epoxy. it'll look however it looks and that's all I want to do to it, with it being a 100% original body and trim,

    Fake patina = bullshit
    Cleared over rust = rat rod
    Hot rods painted years ago = neat
     
  17. Not sure I like patina enough to even call it that...but I do like a car that has character and that you don’t have to worry about as much. I was a painter for about 20 years and made lots of cars “perfect”. Now, I have two original paint old vehicles that might be considered to have patina by some. I just think they are showing their age and telling a story. Oh, and I can park up front at Walmart and also not worry about my kids messing something up when we drive them.

    No clear coat, just decades of weather taking it's toll on a paint brush paint job from the 50's. I'd like to paint it, but I tend to go overboard and get paranoid about driving them.

  27. fordaholic: OUCH!!!! Hope you are OK!

    Mr T body: Just a thought for you. Back in the '40s-'50s many guys
    did brush paint cars. I hardly see a new brush paint car today.
    Maybe brush paint job would be a way for you!
    And you could still be traditional.
    Just a thought.......!

    To me, patina is kinda earned....a badge of honor of sorts. Takes many years to develop patina. I drove a survivor paint car for years and I have grown tired of it.....time to fix it up and start the cycle all over again....

    Some of those cars you see where paint is wore thru in many layers. Every layer is someones dream of their time as caretakers of the car. Every layer has its own story........Many badges of patina have been earned by those cars.
