Re: [T3] paint and clear coat

<x-flowed>Ok since there wasn't any clear coat in the 60s, would you recommend putting a few coats of acrylic laquer over the paint to fully seal it?
I know that cutting a hole in the roof would drop the price of the car dramatically, but i want a sun roof in my car haha.
The colour that was originally on the car was velvet green, and I'm not that big a fan of that colour, too bland for me.
dad and i are not sure what colour the new body is how ever, just the rusted out body.
When did clear coat first come onto the seen if it wasn't around in the 60s? Is there any advantage to no clear or acrylic laquer, or would it be wise to do that to protect the paint?

Hey everyone, as you all know dad and i have recently received a new
Notchback body. I have been pondering two things for a while, one is
would a factory pain job increase the value of my notch and did the
factory spray type 3s with clear coat?

Also is there any place that I can order a rag top from so that i can
have a sunroof in my car?
Thanks for your help.

Back when our cars were new, they hadn't invented "clear coat". IIRC,
the original paint was an acrylic laquer.
