C6 zo6

Nick you were right. this is some hard as clear coat.

in my previos thread i was able to get some scracthes from this





most of the scratches on the vette i thought were lighter and not as deep. i used the same technique i did on the Caprice and couldnt get them out.

really pissed me off.

anyways, here are some pics. this is my brother's Z0h.

Yeah, that Vette paint is hard as nails! I see that a lot of the swirls didn't come out. What products did you use?

The fiberglass used to be the paint issue many years ago. It just wouldn't lay out like it would on metal. LMAO at a Ford owner dogging GM paint!

The paint on the $26k mustang GT in my driveway is better quality than the paint on that $60k+ Z06. It does not have near the bad of orange peel.... no where near!

That's great! I've owned many, many Fords and most of them had shit for paint.

I think it depends on the color of paint! I have a 95 Mustang that is green and the paint still looks good, most of it is factory. My brother has a 95 mustang that is red, it fades like no other! I dont see any red corvettes that have the common problem like the 94-98 darker red color.

Although my '08 F350 is the best running truck I've ever owned, the paint quality is absolutely horrible. In fact, the dealership had to repaint the hood, fenders, and tailgate when it was new because they had cleared over bare metal in some places (no basecoat!).

It's still embarrassing.

Now my GT500...the best factory paint I've ever seen on a production Ford vehicle.

Go figure.

90 GT - Bolt ons - 8.17 @ 173.XX. Original garage queen. '05 FFW Ennis True Street Winner
94 Supra - Big time garage queen
79 FJ40 Landcruiser - 4" lift, LT-1 w/4L60e, and 35's!
'98 Shadow ACE Tourer - 300 miles!
'99 Baja H2X - Water Toy
07 GT500 - Vista Blue w/ White stripes
'93 Cobra - Black on Black, 23K miles!

Its sonic blue, and looks great.

But yall should see how soft the paint is on the expedition... oh my God... you can scratch it using QD and a MF. Kind of like that car that Nick did... (Which he did an amazing job on!)

Tell that to my cousin when the paint literally starting stripping off the hood of her mustang.

Comparing a mustang to a vette? IS there a comparison? There's an hour long show on the assembly of the C6 ZO-6's, I think on discovery that comes on every once in a while. Check it out and tell me if you think that every mustang that gets painted in the factory goes through the same process.

Remember...some of those Ford trucks cost as much (or more) than a Vette...
