Base Coat Clear Coat or Acrylic Enamel

After months of cutting, fabricating, welding, grinding, prining, and
hours of body filler and block sanding, I am nearly ready for paint.
I don't want a mirror finish show car, but I would like a good
looking, fun Amphicar! I estimate spending $600 for base clear coat,
or $250 for acrylic enamel. I think acrylic enamel will give me years
of service, but would appreciate hearing of negative experiences with
it since I have limited auto painting experience.

My wife, Linda, and I were at Celina, Amphicar-less and would like to
thank the club members for their friendliness and especially those who
gave us rides.

Hello Scott: I just painted my car with basecoat clearcoat, I too do not
have a lot of money and is not looking for a 100 point car because the car
was so far gone when i got it. Basecoat clearcoat will give your body work
that much more protection becauce it will seal out the water and help keep
the moisture off your metal. I will be floating next year for sure too.
Good Luck PAUL 67 Amphi
