Well, fractures in the paint mean that the paint has lost most of its hydrocarbons and is completely dried out. Or it can mean that
the primer under it can be defective.
you can still make old lacquer paint shine like a mirror....
but the fractures would show up quite well.
start off with some machine glaze and a buffer, work a two foot by two foot section, after you buff it out spray water and buff lightly until super glossy.....
then when the whole car is done, use some 3m or Meguiar's #7 handglaze.....and buff to a high shine.
If the car has no rust and needs almost no bodywork, it might not cost as much as you think....
with you removing the moldings, weather stripping, and emblems
etc....and then re installing them after the paint....
ask Johnpro about that.....he got his paintjob done for a reasonable amount and it looks great!
The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.
