  • Golden Hawk Door panels

    I want to keep the original upholstery in my 57 GH restoration project- there are some places on the bronze- looking mylar insert in the door panels where the color has been rubbed thin, showing a silver color underneath.

    Has anyone had any luck with painting over that stuff?

    If you find some suitable transparent Gold Lacquer paint to try on it, I would test it on the part that wraps around the back of the panel.

          Or spray-on window tint in bronze/gold. That would probably work well for your application.

            Update- I couldn't find the spray on window tint, but I got a can of Rustoleum Antique Brass Metallic #7274.

            It was pretty close and looks great

              Try a good shoe repair place.
              They have all sorts of spray shoe dye, including gold metallic's...
              Works great on vinyl..
