Lead content in original paint

Postby 79Caprigl » Sat Apr 14, 2018 2:55 pm

Hey guys,

Is there much lead content in the paint used in 70's/80's Capris as mine is in need of sanding down in a few areas where it has started to blister, and I'd like to attempt the repairs myself.

Cheers, Shane

Are you asking what type of paint you should buy to use for your repairs? Just trying to clarify in the hope of seeing some answers :)

Sorry, I should have been clearer haha. I was asking because I wanted to know how safe it is doing my own body prep for a respray (obviously using standard safety gear). It's also be useful knowing the right paint to use as well though :cheers:
