:mad: I painted a 58 Chevy in Cashmere Blue Lacquer and put on 5 coats of PPG clear Lacquer. The paint is now 6 months old. I know that no one uses lacquer anymore but I have painted 3 cars in the last 10 years with it. It's easy to work with and I didn't need to buy any special masks or breathing equipment. Anyhow, the job turned out great but bird droppings eat right through the clear if not removed in 10 minutes. I havent had this problem with any of the previous paint jobs and I know the original 50's cars were painted with acrylic lacquer and there wasn't any problem with bird poop. Is it possible that PPG has fooled with the chemistry of the lacquer because they don't want painters to use it anymore? Does anyone know if there is a protectant or wax that I could use? Sorry about the long message.
