Single Stage Paint

Thin Paint
Tim's 1957 Chevy has a single stage paint job and when I measured the paint thickness using the DeFelsko Paint Thickness Gage, (a very accurate 3% gage), it measured between 2.5 mils and 3.5 mils.


That's right, the paint is very thin. While we can't do a lot to it... we can do a little... and Tim's been helping us out with our Thursday Night project cars and learning the art of polishing paint. Not only can he create a work of art but he knows how to keep it looking that way...

The live broadcast will start Thursday, November 15th at 6:00 PM EST. Follow the link at the beginning of this thread for more information.
