From my other thread, I found the OEM code for Bolero Red for my 55. I want to spray a bit so that I can match windlace, interior paint and exterior paint.
I was fortunate that I found a mom and pop paint shop, AJ Foyt on Cavalcade in Houston if anyone shops in this city for paint. (Great, helpful people, just what I was looking for in a paint store)
Anyway, had my codes and sample sheet from Autocolor library and went to get some paint. The manager/owner helped me find the color though he had to go to PPG tech help, but his wife found the actual code in the computer. Anyway, it's not Bolero Red anymore, it's something else, but.....
Well, I didn't really know what I wanted for this little effort. I know I'm not ready to buy all the paint for the car because I need to make everything match first. So back and forth and I ended up with a pint of DCC.
So, here are the questions for the pros that the paint guy couldn't really help me with.
I'm going to paint the interior also...dash, door panels, tailgate panel. What type of paint should I use for that?? I know it won't be BC/CC. I do intend to use BC/CC for the exterior. I know there will be no guarantee that the two will be exact matches, but then they just need to look good, not match exactly.
Second question...I know DBC is better than Omni. But, i've also read a lot of recommendations for Omni clear. Will Omni BC/CC give me a fine finish or do I need to move up and use DBC? (Or whatever the hell letters they use).
And based on the recommedations I got here earlier, I may go HOK, but I couldn't find anyone who could mix me up a bit of HOK in the immediate area and I didn't have time to make a long concerted effort.( I do have to do some work during the day on occasion). So, if this color works, I can always have HOK match the color.
