That Jeep Bikini color in the Sikkens formula is a tri-stage color so I'm assuming it is a tri-stage color across the board. Though in the Lessonal formula its a bc/cc color, but because it uses a white pearl it will be high, though not as high as a tri-stage but still be premium mix. Nothing in a metallic mix is going to be affordable, but the tri-stage colors are high as giraffe pussy.

This is great info! Thanks for that. Any other intel you can provide on the process would be greatly appreciated. There's enough dynamic range in the shadows/highlights, I figured it wasn't a simple color to spray. But that's what the kid wants, and to be perfectly honest, I love the color too, so we're gonna make that happen.

Any specific recommendations?

If you need a booth to spray it in, my shop neighbor built one in one of his bays.. I mean, he'd probably be happy to spray it too, but has said he'd be willing to 'rent' it for DIY'ers.

He's now doing epoxy counter-tops, which was why he initially built it, but has done paint and body for 15 or 20 years on commercial stuff (most recently locomotives, private aircraft before that).

I've been retired from collision repair for almost 10 years now, but my good friend has a shop near Tyler, I called him last night to find out about that color because it seemed to color shift in most of the pictures I saw online. He has a Lessonal mixing system and he was still at the shop messing around with his personal vehicles, so I told him to look up both formulas. He gave me the info on the Jeep color.
Not sure where your going to get your paint or who your using but most color supply and paint shops have their specific mixing banks.
I prefer Standox, its a euro paint, but any of the main euro paints are excellent, Spies Hecker, Standox, Glasurit, Lessonal, Wanda and Sikkens. They will offer a bc/cc formula that will be very close, but if its a 3 stage color than to get that effect your going to have to use that 3 stage process.

Oh yeah, anytime. I have a head full of body shop information, always here to share what I know. One thing that has not changed is the preparation of the body, it doesn't matter what brand paint you use, if the car isn't prepped correctly, everything will show, especially in the darker glossier colors.

But with Danny and that crew helping you, you should be OK...

The paint on Danny's car is beautiful, for those that haven't seen it in person. Pictures don't do it justice as compared to real life, IMO..

Indeed it is. Itís one of the finest cars Iíve ever been around. Itís awesome that Danny drives it so much too. Usually a car that nice with that quality and quantity of work put in it gets a life sentence in the garage.

Danny sourced us some cool chrome steel slots. They're actually Japanese, and likely for original Z cars, but the bolt pattern is right. Should be cool.

Are they like slotted mags? I've always wanted a muscle \car to throw a set of those or some Cragars on. Sounds like this thing is going to be a looker. How much time is left before she gets her license? Have you warned her not to date car guys yet? lol

She'll be 16 February 2022. Still lots of work to do, but I feel good about it. I haven't warned her about car guys too much, but she doesn't suffer fools, so it'll likely be a self leveling system. lol

Here are the wheels:

My dad passed away a few weeks ago, which has been pretty awful. Dealing with the estate has taken up every spare second but we managed to carve out an afternoon to get back in the garage. That was some good therapy. Fitzwell supervised, but Jade did most of the work getting the old driveline out. So long worn out 289/3spd. Making room for that 302/T-5 combo.

Thanks man. I tried on the gloves, but she pushed back, and some lessons are better learned through experience. I was wearing gloves, lol.

I'm all about safety, teaching my boy the little things.
For one you don't have greasy ass dirty finger nails. Two, some thing gets on your eye or you need to wipe your face, get your phone or other tools.
