  • The worst paint job ever

    I hope whoever owned this car didn`t pay for this paint job.

    What you see in the paint job appears to be reflected throughout the entire photo (all of them). It looks like someone tried using a photo enhancement program to sharpen the images but it did not work well.
    I could be wrong, but that is what it looks like to me.

        Maybe it's an enlarged Hot Wheels car.

              I agree on that one. Perhaps taken with a Flip-phone?

                If it's actually the paint and not a computerized enhancement, what nap roller do you think they used?

                    I once saw a Sunbeam Tiger that had a similar finish. The owner said it was unintended. He just told everyone that like a refrigerator it was that way so the finger prints wouldn't show!

                      Looking at the pictures I see a clear reflection in the bumper but not the paint. The paint on the dash has runs, the gauges and the rear name plate are pitted. There are no under the car shots and the brakes appear to be cobbled together. Mine may be in worse condition but it is original and I am not presenting it as a nice car. I guess I'm not presenting mine at all.

                        It is a bit unusual to see a car sitting in a show room that looks that rough. The bezels on the dash could use some chrome polish. At least you get some big speakers in the trunk to fill that enormous space.

                          Lots of orange peel. I should have my 60 Hawk ready for paint next month. I really hope it looks better than that. I'll be doing the paint myself, so if its too bad, it will come back off and start over. Have painted a few cars in the past, that turned out well, but have not done base and clearcoat. Body guys tell me that it is easier, so we will see. Still deciding on original color (desert sand), or something more modern.

                            Notice that it is listed as; "
                            Drive Side:
                            Right-hand drive", but it isn't.

                            The ignition key is in the ON position, but nothing is showing on the gauges.

                            They had to work to get that Group 24 battery in there (I guess that they thought that all 1963 Studebakers used that size.).

                              Bad paint job? Not if they used Linex as the base coat, like this guy;

                              I bet the Linex does dampen noise pretty good though!
