New Paint!

Hey Z people! I just thought I would share my paint job results. I painted my Car in November, I used PPG LeMans Sunset (Nissan 350Z color A17). It is a 2 stage paint, base coat/ clear coat. I used a professinal spray booth at my local high school. There is an adult education program for auto body paint and repair that is taught there, for $20 you can learn how to do body work and paint your car in a pro spray booth. I still need to color sand the hood and fenders but so far I think it looks beautiful. I'm getting the bumpers welded up and re-chromed, once I get them back and on the Z I'll take some awesome pictures of my car. If you have any questions please let me know.

Matt, where abouts is this course taught? I live around Irvine and have been looking for such as course (as well as one for welding).

By the way, I owned a 2003 Le Mans Sunset 350z and absolutely love the color. I am still debating what color I will paint my car. I was going to go with the same color as yours, but I am heavily leaning towards the new Mustang Orange with a satin black accent on the hood/ hood cowl.

Hey Bo, The class is held at fullerton high school. It is run through the north orange county ROP program. The class is monday through friday 8am - 5am, it covers everything including mig welding. The cool thing about the class is you dont have to go all day every day... you just go when you can and as long as you can. do a google search for north orange county ROP and you'll find it. I hope this helps, and I cant wait to see the color you pic for your Z.

Thanks for all the great comments guys. I have no plans to paint anyone eleses car... no matter how much cash is thrown at me. LOL I am way to much of a perfectionist and it would take me forever to get another car done. I'm still waiting for the bumpers to be done. I can't wait for the MSA west coast show this year. I'm wondering how many early modle Z's will have this new color. Thanks again guys

Hi Justin, I got the paint at a store about 2 miles from my house. Its an automotive paint store, so thats all they do. I got PPG and it cost me over 600 dollars for one gallon. I could have painted the car with 2/3 of a gallon but now I have lots of extra paint. I did a little shopping around before I bought my paint and another store in my area wanted 900 buck for a gallon of the same paint. the $600 got me everything I needed for the paint job (except the spray gun and the booth). There are less expensive paints out there (in the same color) but I wanted the best and I wanted it to last a looooong time. If you have any other questions please let me know.
