Repainting doors on a 1966 Coupe Stang
« on: December 29, 2009, 12:55:25 PM »
Hello All,

I am preparing to do some body and paint work on my 1966 Coupe Mustang. But I have run into a slight issue. The issue is that the interior side of the doors on my Stang have a treatment that was done to the paint at the factory that makes it have the visual texture of leather (or vinyl). And my problem is that since there is surface rust from wear and tear on the upper parts of the door I need to strip and sand the door (along with all of the exterior body panels) down to bare metal, and then prime with a PPG acid etch primer to preserve the metal (this is a interim solution to stop all rust and body cancer dead in its tracks). and then a PPG satin clear to protect the primter and paint as I don't have the cash to do a full paint job now or in the near future.

So my question is does anyone know if there a process to recreate the texture?

I have been told to use a crinkle finshing agent, but I doubt that would give me the same look. If you want I can get pictures and post them so you can see my quandry.

the texturing can be recreated by painting the inside panel then while the paint is dry but will take an impression if you push on it you take a towel(etc.....) and push down into the soft paint it will take the look of the towel and be textured...... or you can sand it down wipe with a skim coat of filler and sand the grain out for a smooth look.....

Sorry it took so long to get a pic. But here is one. My digital camera did an epic fail when I tried to take a pic with it so here is one from my cell.

Thanks man. I thought it was just a texture pressed into the paint, but if it is actually stamped into the sheetmetal that is a lil easier to deal with. All I need to do is strip it with Jasco, and maybe a wire brush to get all the old paint out. Then just primer it and away I go.
