I dunno what all the fuss is about, after all the clear coat has peeled
off it looks ok again. For a matte finish, anyway.
My solution - a gallon of Glidden and a 6" brush. Git er done...
I think what you want is rustoleum. See this month's "Hot Rod", the "98
Dollar Paint Job". Or, my favorite resource, Moparts.com. They have ably got me
through the restoration of my '64 Plymouth and '67 Dodge.
This is a 100 page thread on roller painting with rustoleum (the Canadian
version is preferred). There are now 2 "Daughter" threads, those deal with the
problem of clear coating the rustoleum. 6000 members, any question answered.
I have posted the question to moparts. The thread is
3527622) with 6000 members, the board moves real fast. Responses will

In a prior thread, someone cautioned on painting enamel over lacquer. I
think it is the reverse, lacquer attacks enamel, but enamel can be painted over
lacquer. I think it has been 40 years since a car saw enamel. In any case, my
local supplier will mix modern paint, color matched by computer or "color
books" for $45.00 a pint. You still need reducer, so you end up with two pints. I
think you need to buy the clear by the gallon. SEM Products sells a rattle
can clear enamel. The Preval bottles now sell for $4.98.
