Black Friday Fords

I have always been a fan of Black Hot Rods. Black is the hardest of the colors to keep clean, to hide imperfections and to find the deepest black. For years, I sprayed 99L in my garage and was very pleased with the results and ease of touching up mistakes. Fast forward to today’s paints with BCCC being the standard in CA. Concept DCC 9300 was all I used until. To my knowledge that paint is no longer available and we now have to use BCCC 93000 to obtain a nice black color on our Hot Rods. Pepe is painted with that color and I am going to shoot the back door finally if the weather warms up. The paint runs about $700 per gallon so I don’t want to make any mistakes. Bobby Alloway has always held a place in my heart of a painter who could make Black paint Blacker than anyone else I compared him to. He was the master and still has the touch for Black Hot Rods.

Over the years, Red became the new Black in the 80’s with Dana Red and Boyd Red taking the lead. Magoo used Porshe Guards Red and also started a trend for Red Hot Rods. After a series of various colors in the past 5 years, basic Black has come back strong on Hot Rods built in the traditional style. The problem in California is finding the paint and the cost. It takes approximately 2 gallons to paint you average hiboy and another 1/2 gallon for fendered cars which quickly adds up for materials when at the paint store. The correct clear is important, so don’t skimp in this area. Painters usually want $2500 to purchase materials and usually have some left over. Make sure you get the left overs for touch up work. A black car will attract lots of attention if done right on a straight body or cause lots of negative comments on a wavy body. A slight skim coat of bondo will make it straight. Done right Black Hot Rods are my favorite.

I am featuring Black cars only in today’s blog.
