The PPG DPLV epoxy primer is thicker and has some build properties rather than the DPLF which is watery. Porchdog likes the SPI epoxy primer. I have just finished painting my '64 using PPG...

Unfortunately, California has a property tax. It is called "License Fee" on the renewal. It is based on the value of the car and decreases every year to a base fee.

Thank you DUB. Since I have the rest of the car to do, I'll try stopping at 2000. I have a wool pad and some "grittier" compound. Pictures to follow when I'm (if ever) satisfied.
