So my 69 is not the original color. It has been sprayed probably 4 years ago. And it looks pretty good. But there is probably 6 to 8 chips I would like to fix. Then there looks to be some paint splatters. The clear is really shiny and I have had some base coat mixed up thats about as close as I can get.
I know nothing about paint, except for what I have researched and watched on Youtube. I have base paint and some reducer. Also purchased a spray can of good clear. In all the chip repair videos I have watched they never spray any clear back on. This now has me wondering if I got the correct stuff to do the job.
If there car was painted with base coat and clear, and they first sand with like 1000 grit. It dulls it up. And I assumed that now all the clear has been removed. But when they use the rubbing compound and buffer the shine returns. How is this? And what if i dont have same type paint job? I also have the terms single stage paint jobs. Is this not a base coat clear coat? Anyone with knowledge please help.
