For many years they used Salchi lacquer paint. It was a terrible product. A year or two after painted it looked pretty bad. But when new they were turning out some great looking cars. How many peoples knowledge of the quality of the paint finish is based on a Salchi panted car a couple of years after it was painted. They went to Glasurit after and a lot of Glasurit cars look as good today as they did in 1985. In the later years that stuff was falling off so quick they were buying almost as many paint jobs under warranty as they were rebuilding 308 engines for burning oil.
