Default 1968 corvette new paint


Finally got the car painted today. Ended up going with a metallic grey from a 2016 camaro ss called nightfall grey. I got the paint from Sherwin Williams and I gotta say I can’t be more pleased with my decision. What do you guys think?

Nice job! My car needs a good paint job as well - probably a few years away though. If you don't mind me asking, how much was the total?

I got all of my sand paper, body filler, and primer paid for by my school. I only paid for the sealer, base, and clear. After a 20% discount at Sherwin Williams and going with their cheaper “dimension” line of paint the total was $1100
