    Re: The Secret to Removing Oxidation and Restoring a Show Car Finish to Antique Single Stage Paints

    Glad I found this article!! I have 4 antique cars with original black paint that need detailing this summer...this sure helps determine the path I will be taking. Hope to post photos as I take them on. The cars? A 1946 Nash 600, a 1947 Buick Roadmaster, a 1958 Rambler Custom, and a 1979 Corvette, locally known by the little kids as the Bat Mobile. LOL All are low mileage cars - Rambler at 9990K, the Vette at 14K, the Nash at 54K and the Buick at 70K. I'll need a case of #7! LOL

    Thank you. It's always nice to hear feedback from our forum members like this. It was also a real honor to have AutoTraderClassic.com publish this article in its entirety on their website.

    When working on original and antique single stage paints, the risk is very high that the bottle of sand or as we call it, "Rocks in a Bottle" type products, would have chewed right through the paint and exposed the primer or shiny metal and ruined the original factor of the paint.

    Another very good article for this topic is this one,

    The power in the after shots is created in the before shots


    Don't rub a big circle in the middle of the hood making a shiny spot BEFORE getting "good" before shots of the hood in the before condition. Click the link above and read through the article, it's based upon a lot of experience on this topic.

    You have a very nice collection and if the paint on all 4 vehicles is the original paint then it's all single stage. GM didn't start spraying basecoat/clearcoat onto Corvettes till 1980.

    The paint on GM cars in 1979 was usually not very good and not known for longevity, so if the paint on the Vette is still looking like it's in good shape then definitely give it the #7 treatment versus the rocks in a bottle treatment.

    The 1946 Nash and the 1947 Buick will either have lacquer or enamel and if they are not past the point of no return then you can probably do wonders with them, same for the 1958 Rambler.

    What are you working on? This technique and product are primarily for pre-1980 cars.

    Re: The Secret to Removing Oxidation and Restoring a Show Car Finish to Antique Single Stage Paints

    I am working on a 1971 dodge demon, the roof, trunk, top of doors, fenders, and quarters all have original paint....somewhere along the line the bottom half of the car got bad respray with single stage paint over the original paint and is chipping in some spots. BTW can I wet sand the spots that are chipped away since original paint is underneath and just try to level it out....I know car will look like dalmation in those areas but was just an idea

    Racer X I had a detailer do that same thing to my car last year...never washed the car and went straight at it with buffer and compound...I have burn marks on fender and door and a spot thats very thin about size of a hand on trunk thats discolored and looks like burn or possibly primer showing

    I wouldn't recommend it; when you bring the car up here to Lansing on the 9th we'll see what if anything we can do to improve the appearance of it. Just sounds like whoever did the paint work didn't prep the surface properly before spraying.

    I remember when I got my first Meguiars products, they were part of a bucket package way back in like 1995 or so and Show Car Glaze was one of those included. I had no idea what I was doing with it or many of the other ones honestly back then, but man, it sure is neat to see what it's really capable. Awesome work.

    And yeah, I know this is from last year. Just crazy results by hand.

    This was never the car I wanted to use for this article as single stage metallic paints are the hardest to restore.

    I'm still working on getting the owner of an all original pink 1959 Cadillac to let me use his car for a second article as pink 1959 Cadillacs are so iconic in car history. Plus it has the original pink, single stage paint intact, it just needs a little TLC

    This one from this thread,

    The Caddy King's Hidden Collection of 1959 Cadillacs!


    Here's a genuine "Pink Cadillac" with the original paint.
