Starting a new thread to post my search for the correct paint to restore the original finish on my newly acquired ‘69 750 S. Just finished some samples. Mixed .008” silver flakes in gel coat then poured onto wax paper for a test coupon. First the flakes are too large. Using a microscope with .002” scale built in I can see the original flake size is .004”. Got that on order now. Using Dupli Color candy red pre mixed, dipped the sample with up to three coats. First the paint is too opaque as three coats obscures the flakes. Also the color is too orange. Will try House of Kolors candy red next.
