2000c 1968 paint opinions
Hi everyone. I'm a bit new to the BMW experience. A month ago I bought a 76 2002, stuck engine, that project is going well. But since then I purchased a 1968 2000c. This car is completely disassembled now. On Tuesday 12-3-13 the shell is getting sandblasted , and then directly to the paint shop. The body is near perfect and should be sprayed in just a few days.
This car is originally white, perhaps it's called chamonix not sure. But that seems to be the only white offered that year.
So, my painter wants to use a base coat clear coat. But part of me wants to use an enamel single stage. I feel it's a bit more authentic and it's a harder finish. I personally am not overly interested in a super perfect finish, that I know only a clear coat can achieve. Also the clear is more easily touched up should the car get damaged during re-assembly.
So the BIG QUESTION!!!
Base coat / clear coat?
Enamel single stage?
Looking for some expert opinions
