Thanks for sharing as always stratman.

I love the Martinque Blue Poly colored '78 Trans Am in particular.

That's the color I re-painted my '73 Lemans Sport Coupe back in 1979. It was lacquer paint back in those days, no enamel or urethane. I think I sprayed close to 8 coats of color and another 6-8 coats of clear. Lacquer is much thinner than enamel basecoat/clear coat.

Thanks, JUSTA. It's a "10 footer", lol- any closer and you'll see all the cracks, chips, paint flaws, uneven gaps, etc. But she's a blast to drive!

It is a beautiful blue, alright. I'm picturing Lucy that color in my head... nice!

My friend's '68 Camaro- he did all the restoration work himself, body work, paint, upholstery, engine, suspension... everything!
