Z 28 Stripes

#1
Hi everyone fairly new here. Great site, Learning a lot. I have a 71 Z 28 that is going to be Painted pearl white 3 stage. The guy that is going to paint it said he will lay the base, then lay the pearl, mask it for the stripes and spray the black for the stripes. Once that is all done he will spay the SPI clear. I am a little concerned about spaying the black over the pearl. Any thoughts?

Hard to say, you gotta trust the painter doing the work. I usually wouldn’t mask a tri stage pearl white because I’d be afraid of disturbing the finish but if done carefully then it will be ok. The stripes will cover very fast and will have minimal build, so you won’t see/feel them so much after the clear coat, so that’s a plus I guess.

Thanks, Jorge. I was thinking that after the pearl was sprayed, the surface would be a little rough but I guess the pearl lays pretty flat. The guy painting my car comes highly recommended but a bunch of people.

I would encourage your painter after he is done with the white to lay one nice wet coat of clear over the areas to be striped; come back the next day lightly wet sand with 800 then lay the stripes, then clear as he normally would.
