This autumn I'm going to get my 308GTS completely repainted. As I intend to keep the car a long time, I want to go the whole hog and get car stipped back to bare metal (where applicable), just to make sure there are no nasties lurking in the background.

As I'll have the car completely deviod of paint, this brings the option of repainting using original cellulose, or in 2pac.

As I understand it, 2pac is harder and more durable, less prone to chipping, but when it does chip the chip's are bigger, and it has a slightly "false" gloss to it.

Anyone have any thoughts or experiences on 2pac V celly ? (good or bad)

Cheers
Nev

You might want to try posting this in the General section to catch a wider audience. I recognised the title so I knew would be you

Can you get Finnigan's Smoothrite in red nowadays? That would be a cheaper option - might not chip so easily either.

I believe 2pac is the more durable and better option ( painted my old Scimitar in cellulose) but spraying 2pac is a specialist business unless you enjoy breathing cyanide(sp?)! (hence why I used cellulose)
