paint or strip

I have painted a few cars over the years and seem to be getting better at it. My Minuet probably looksa little better in the photo than it does in person. Metallics can be tricky to apply. For a first timer I recommend a non-metallic paint, so you probably would want to stick with a solid color like the original Argosy finishes. In regards to painting vs. stripping, it is 6 of one and half a dozen of the other. I love the polished A/S look, just think it is too high maint, painting is low maint but it is hard to fully replicate the polished look. I had been casually looking for an A/S in the 25 to 27 foot range but was stopped cold in my tracks after seeing a 91 model with a serious case of clearcoat peel, after seeing that I guess I really started to appreciate the painted Argosy.
