Kurt,

I don't want to rush you, but I am eager to see the pictures of your paint job

I can imagine that it looks great after what you have said and the fact that the body looked flawless when it was painted black.

Great job

Kevin

Sorry everyone, I updated my website:

I will add some more pictures as I put everything back on.

Oh and I went with a 2 tone door in the end. My wife thinks it should have been white so I may change it......never ends

Kurt in BC,
Thanks for the update! From your pictures, she has a very "clean" look. We're looking forward to the curb side.

Thanks everyone. It turned out much better than I thought.

Don't hold your breath on my father. In 28 years this is the first time I have been able to drag him out to paint something for me. It was nice to see him at his trade. He retires next April.

Kurt;

Thank you so much for documenting your restoration. Please keep those photos coming. It is an inspiraton and I hope to have my Boler American looking as good in a few months.

One question; what paint did you use on the body and what paint inside (e.g. under the sink)? OK, maybe that was two questions!

The paint on the inside (under the sink) is an indoor/outdoor latex paint in gloss white. I used the same paint for the ensolite but went with a flat white. The company is Rust-Oleum the model is 'Paiters Touch.' I like it as its affordable and they sell it in a quart.

As for the outside paint its all PPG automotive finishes. The bottom is Toyota colour 'Desert Dune Poly' (we seen it on a Toyota Rav 4 one day). The top is a white and is an industrial grade paint for painting busses, machinery, etc. Basically a cheap paint, untinted, sold in large quantities.

Anyway, both colours are Acrylic based paints meaning its a one step paint with no clear coat required as the gloss is already in the paint. You stil need a reducer and hardener but they are very easy to add to the pot. The Accelerator for faster drying is incredibale stuff. The paint is actually too dry in some areas (the roof) from where it went on using the Accelerator but perfect for outside if your painting like I was.
