    Just thought i'd share my experience with painting my '81 in Rustoleum flat black. I used Rustoleum primer first mixed 50/50 with acetone followed by the same mixture with the paint along with a few ounces of Japan Drier. Laid down 3 even coats through my hvlp at 35psi and then let it cure for 24 hours before letting it sit in the sun. Total investment was about $40 and i'm pleased with the outcome.
