Now with two coats of black clear coat

And the results. Here is the car in the booth with two coats of "black" clear coat. Next is two coats of clear and painting is done. This is more what I had envisioned for the final color of the car.

WOW! That is one amazing bit of hard work and beautiful painting talent. Can't wait to see it fully finished and running. As a new member to the Alfa family, this type of passion reminds me why I joined.

Fawrrk that is simply gorgeous, you could hang that on the walls of the Louvre, or perhaps the Tate Modern in London, or even here in Hobart at MONA, and people would stare in wonderment at its naked beauty.

Man that is glorious and what an excellent tip too re the various clear coats. Must remember that one for sure.

Hi guys. We here at the shop are really happy for the owner. We really want to think him for allowing us to do the trick Tri-coat effect on the paint. What a camera can't capture is how the depth of gloss lays. The problem with any grey is, it always looks like it is at the surface and it tends to lack depth. So when we ask to do this effect, it made my day that Paul trusted us enough to do it. It has been about 8 years since I last did this effect. Paul really deserves high praise for the end result.

Hi Daron

You guys are pure genius, and it is always impressive to see another restoration out of your shop. I should imagine you are pretty proud of your guys.

A quick technical question, if this is so effective with a grey colour in bringing out the depth of colour, could this similarly be used to the same effect with say Blu Hollandese or Bluette ?? It is just that to have such a high quality finish on my Super, when I get it painted is something I would really like.

Yes, it would work. XXXXXXXXXXXXX I wrote this reply three times explaining the process but I know this will be miss used and someone will blame me, so I will keep it simple. depending on the color (blue works well) the safe ratio (again depending on color, solids only!!!) it equal about 800 grams of clear to 1 (yes 1) gram of color. Once done you must apply pure clear over the work.

Thanks really appreciate the advice there. I had thought it might work really well given how well it worked with the grey, but the ratios are obviously also very important. Great to be aware of this.

I have taken down the advice and will store it, so can pass on to the painter when I am ready. Cheers

For Dennis, regarding door skins.

Okay so we've been talking a lot about the skill in the paint job and the finish work on the car. But we'd never have such a great end result without skilled body work as you pointed out.

I chatted with Daron about the door skin welding today and the response was as you would expect. It's skill and patience. Daron says it takes a long time to train someone to do this sort of welding without applying too much heat in one place which would cause warping and other problems. Bottom line, patience, skill, practice and keep it moving. I couldn't do this if my life depended on it...

For Dennis regarding brake cylinder re-lining. The cost to do the master and six slave cylinders was just over $500 USD.

Thanks for remembering me Paul, I was wondering as I had to re-do my Sprint door skin at least 3 times before I succeded and was satisfied, trying all time to apply the tricks you´ve mentioned, patience, go slowly, instant cooling with wet towels, have a certain order etc, but still I guess the experience one gains with practice of knowing exact when and how is decisive (which in my case was finally proven by the 3th strike, or was there even a 4th one?, don´t recall any more and rather don´t want that either...).

Dennis
