I have not built one of these since the 60s , so now here I am adding 1962 corvette skirts into the mix. Moved the front and rear spring shackles to lower the ride height without creating more work than I want to do.

With the light body work done and final sanding completed I was able to get both colors on the '53 . Now to get the interior door panels done.

Why is it when I get the paint where Im happy with it, I let it sit for 5 days, hit it with Krylon acrylic clear and  after 1 day it krinkled up on just the blue, white is fine. The blue and white are both lacquer. Well I have a little more clean up before re prime and re paint, or dull coat it and leave it🤔😃

That's a shame since the original paint job looked great. You might want to try some other clear just to see if it's the Krylon clear that 's the problem.

Ok, I have it back in fresh primer after the disaster with the clear, and I made a few additions. Added new front top fender strips, lower rear bumperetts with plate.

Ok ....I have this back in color again, sticking with one color and using the same brand primer , paint and clear. Try the clear again this week.

Just a suggestion.  Try a bit of Novus polish without the clear and see if that doesn't protect the paint.  It really looks good this time around.

Thank you for the comment and Novus polish tip. Im as far as I can go at this point to make sure that purple paint has set up. Got the rear cover , seat and most on the chassis done today.
