Argent Silver Spray Paint correct for 72+ Cuda Grill?
      #4717760 - Mon Sep 29 2008 12:02 PM

Anyone have experience with the Argent Silver sold by Totally Auto?

http://www.totallyautoinc.com/paints.html

Does it look somewhat correct? I'm thinking of using it on my "driver" as I have a crack I need to repair...

Any opinions appreciated!

Their dark argent is a very good match, I have used it on several 72-74 grills

What about the lower part and the bumper filler? They look plain gray to me. I'm re-doing a 74 never been painted.

Did it spray on OK? I've heard of people using larger nozzles to help prevent clogging - what was your experience?

It has always sprayed fine for me. I would say the color is right on, but would also say the metal flake in it is a little smaller than the original. I painted the lower insert the same, which I know isn't correct, they were as cast grey plastic. I did the bumper filers in Krylon Fusion grey paint. Correct, no, but looked alot better than the faded originals.

Krylon textured black from Lowes. It did look good, laid down very nicely. It was indistinguishable from Totally Auto's organasol for about 20 percent of the cost

I like to use the light argent from Penstar. My trick is to do it either in direct sunlight or heat the grill up to help it spray a little "dry". Use multiple light coats and keep a farther than average distance when spraying.

Restoring a car to look "only" as good as the factory made it is like getting a boob job for your wife and having the doctor make them two different sizes to seem more natural

It was a low mileage, no rust, numbers 360 4 speed car I did a day 2 type of restoration on a couple years ago. The guy I bought it from bought it in 75 from his brother when he was 14. He drove it very little, saw very little use in the last 20 plus years. Very early 80s he put w2 heads and 4.30 gears in it, which the car still has.

Thanks for posting the pictures of your car, very nice ride you have there. Is that a Plymouth color? I like that red with the white stripe, John.
