AssalamualikumMy Painter has given me the booklet of DuPoint paint containing many Silver shades,Its pretty hard to select so i need ur suggestionsAlso my question are Metallic those colours which gives shiny broken glases like texture on the Paint???
what is the colour originally?
Origional Colour was Silver,But sum says Grey Metallic,On the book it is Grey written
Here are the pics
Are you talking about flaky metallic paint? Anyways post some pics of your car if possible. And where are you planning on getting the paint job done from? And how much is the guy quoting you? I myself own a similar car as to yours and need a good place to get the paint done.
sliver wont work on it i seen many ke 20s in sliver and after some time it gets fad i love these cars in chocolate color if u like try that
^^^ Yups Dark Brown looks impressive!
the original earth colors these cars came in were the best. If you want something nice - select a candy shade (your painter may know it as tinting shade) its a different base coat with a semi-transparent color gloss.
btw - with a body in that condition - it would have been wise to first sand blast it or use a wire brush on a grinder to "rough up" the body then spray the base coat primer or apply body filler to it - The little scratches the brush produces makes the material stick to metal very strongly
Get the engine out - and literally FINISH the engine room to the best - Toyota at that time used primer colour in the engine room and matt black finish on the radiator support - you can also bake the colour with a little heater and fan in the engine room - it makes the car look very very finished. You should also have the brake lines galvanised to give it that brand new look.
search the internet for urself and first tell us what u like
If you are stuck on silver - choose a shade a german car came with, mostly from the era of W123 - and ask your painter to spray it in glass finish - NO ORANGE PEEL. Is possible hire a giant air compressor with a large drier and oil accumulator for extremely crisp clean air - it makes all the difference in the finish.
Good info ::
seen ur car today.... nice work done by Noman n Aslam denters...Thumbs up bro.....
I dont think i have that option rite now coz the Paint work has begun,the coating of grey substance have been done now & in a day or 2 the painting will be started,I did thought abt sadblasting but not much rust is on the body,The body was roughed up like scraches on a CD but not visible in pics due to bad camera quality,Its Nokia 2700C
Here are some more Pics
Yes Dark Brown Dark Green & Dark Blue colour looks dashing on it but my Father likes light colours & in lite colours only silver suits this carAm thinking about Sparkling Silver Mat
@Salmand bro u know Aslam & Noman??
The Car is in this condition rite now Also plz suggest me some good performance & easy (Bolt to bolt) engine swap
I told the Painter to paint Sparkling Silver he said it will give a thick look paint,He suggested to mix lite silver with sparkle but am confused
i'm craving for the final loOk and just thinking how awesome will it be best of luck dear and keep the pictures coming
