What coating for single stage paint?

Hey guys, just in the process of bringing the paint back on this 1939 Austin 8, beautiful car!

I would like to seal with a really good coating, maybe CSL followed by Exo? Then I can use the remaining on my V6 Clio

Here's how she's coming along! I'm lovin it!!

Thank you

A nice big set of red alloys and it'll be looking sweet lol.

Just kidding. That's a beauty. I love old cars, and you're really working some magic on that one. Can we see some more pics when you've a bit more done pls?

Keep 'er lit (as they say in County Fermanagh)

Wouldn't a nice wet looking wax be more appropriate to a vehicle of that era?

It would be, but if it's soft paint and it's single stage paint then a coating would be the best choice of LSP, I would use Carpro ceramic coating like their classic which is more glossy than Quartz uk and it's very easy to apply

Great finish Dawn

If it can be garaged I wouldn't use any LSP just an oily glaze.

With a paint like that its not such gloss you are wanting, Its more depth and wetness that brings the best out of it, especially with it being black. a oily glaze and wax all the way.

Thanks guys! It's not the toughest of paints, and we currently don't have anywhere to store her so ideally a good durable coating will be a big help.

You've no idea how much I want to get some Blacklight and Fuzion on her! Lol

Finessing stages due soon, that is after an initial cut & medium follow up compound.

The thing you have to think about is the less you touch it i.e. Wash drying and re applying LSP is with a coating it makes it a lot easier to look after. You might loose out with the deeper wetter look but it's better than having to correct it again in the near future.
