This is Sandy my 73 Squareback the day I brought it home. She is running a fresh 1776 with a 110 cam and Weber 34 ict carbs

Rack is being powder coated silver and in a few weeks I am having the whole car cleared. Going to use a gloss clear with some flake in it.

Well I was able to get the flake and clear done but it didn't get sprayed right. I think they were to far away while spraying it and it ended up very textured. I loved the look of the flake but the texture was just to much. By the time I wet sanded it smooth there wasn't much of the flake left Sad

Now I'm back to sanding it down smooth and I'm just going to satin black the Square myself.

Yeah, that's about the same texture I end up with after doing each section on the bus before I wetsand it out. I like the flat black job, though I know it sucks having to redo it.

No only put flake in the first 2 coats. Then did 5 coats of clear over that. By the time I sanded it smooth to buff though there was nothing left. Thinking about just stopping where I'm at and see if I can trade it for another Bug or something

You'll get more if it is one color, and is even flat.

yeah I know but I'm just tired of it Sad Not really enjoying this car as much. The 1776 runs outstanding, especially since Steve Sands tuned it, but I just need another Bug or Ghia
