I thought I'd post up a little bit about how I take dead paint and bring some life back to it. The subject today is my 53 Chrysler Town and Country. It had a respray over 25 years ago and has been neglected ever since. Now that she is driving it's time to give her a little shine. I've done this on 2 other cars in the past and I really love the results. Some may call it fake patina but IMO it looks a hell of a lot better than dead paint. WARNING: If you choose to try this method yourself you WILL lose paint and burn through all over the place. First lets look at what we are starting with. Not bad looking overall for a daily driver. Note the orange peel from the respray and how flat and ugly it looks.
