Quality of automotive paint brands

Hi All,

I am nearly ready to paint my Lj Torana coupe and am in the process of looking at buying paint. I do not want to spend a million dollars on paint as I am on a budget and the tory will be an everyday driver. However I would still like it to look good and last well under the hot Queensland sun.
I have looked at three brands and am asking for your thoughts on each brand or even some recommendations.
I have looked at DUpont ($319 4 Litres Broda silver-group two colour) Concept ($230 4 Litres-Broda silver) and PPG ($150 4 Litres Broda silver)

She's looking pretty good.....

Well, after countless hours, weeks and months of damn hard work, not to mention the stress of choosing colours, (allowing kitten to walk across newly sprayed panel) re-sanding, more sanding and listening to the advice of helpful experts (many from this site), I can finally say that the 'old girl' is starting to look pretty fine..
For those of you interested, I spent about two years getting quote after quote for bodywork and some major rust repairs, died of shock at the price, and the availability of 'quick-fix-ups' then decided, damn-it I will do it myself.
As anyone who has the focus and desire to love and restore these old beauties would appreciate, any job worth doing properly - should be.
It has taken months and months of learning, changing ideas, experimenting and re-learning to even get to this stage ... Yahoooooo, she is now primed, just about ready for sanding down (again) and this shot is of one full coat in the choosen colour. This shot was taken in the garage so I am yet to take her out into the sunshine to fully appreciate the colour, but I will post one after the weekend when I move her.
To ALL those who have posted info and answered all my silly questions and requests for advice..... xxx From a 36yo 'gal' who thought for a millisecond that she had bitten off more than she could chew.

Hi I have an Lj Torana coupe that I am restoring as a replica GTR and am about to weld the fluted sections into the front guards. Can anyone that has a genuine GTR or XU1 Torana with fluted guards tell me some rough measurements so that I can position them as they where on the original ol girls.

Any information much appreciated.
My email is markr5@optusnet.com.au

Many thanx

nightly update

Well the sub-frame has left the monaro.
The only thing that was no good was the lower k frame arms .
Really only just need replacing as the rest of the sub-frame is OK.
Wonder what i would get off eBay for a genuine monaro sub-frame????
This is the passenger side ear on the fire wall sweet as .Couple of tiny bubbles but OK.
Would it be best to tar this area before i put the new sub-frame on????
All that helped with the last post cheers the skate boards do come in handy..

Seat Belts For Old Holdens

Hey guys. I have decided once the rest of the HG is done ill get the dash recovered in some sort of material.

I was thinking about what i can do for replacement seatbelts, as the original ones are frayed and would not pass a RW. I am aware rarespares sell replacements for a small fortune. But i was wondering if it was legal and practical to sources belts from another model (say commodore) or another aftermarket place that might be cheaper or better quality.

Any thoughts Guys?
Cheers
