I am suggesting that we could use this forum to discuss topics to do with the restoration, preservation and ongoing maintenance of veteran vehicles.
I am considering having a go at "traditional coach painting" using a brush. This has a number of desirable features.
It is authentic. Almost all veteran vehicles were painted this way, some parts may have been dip painted and many T Fords were basically hosed with paint.
It avoids the health issues with many modern coatings, especially two pack coatings.
It is less wasteful of resources and better for the environment.
In the UK you can buy coach paint specifically formulated for this very purpose ex stock. However they will not export to Australia due to the issues involved with exporting a liquid product.
The closest products that I can locate in Australia are high gloss sign writing paints, either Vipond or 1Shot.
I was wondering if anyone has any experience brush painting their veteran or any knowledge about the best paint to use or application pointers.
