I am preparing to do a scuff and shoot paint job on my '65 Rambler.  The body is very straight and rust free and the factory paint is still pretty nice but has "ghosts" and a lot of color variation here and there. What brand and types of primer/paint do you guys recommend for this type of job? I know there is a forum category for paint but I actually wanted someone to see this. Thanks in advance,
John

I personally like Dupont Fulthane single stage paint.  I've had it stick real nice to a stock finish, but you'll need to test it on any finish to see.  They sell a sealer and I've used it - but don't really care for it.     Seems to allow the paint to chip off the sealer easier. Their compatible epoxy primer is probably a better base.  Or if it sticks to the existing well, just lay it over the top.
