Ahhh, 621 Rustic Green. The color of my very fist FJ40...
Acrylic Enamel. Now that's another story. I sure hope you have better luck than I did. That same first 40 was painted approx 1985 with Dupont Centari acrylic enamel. All new paint looks great for a while. In a matter of several years it cracked like you sanded it with 600 grit and got chalky.
Here's a picture from a year or so ago that I found
Appreciate all the comments...I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
This is still a 3 years frame off renovation in progress, The Aqualu tub and cowl were picked up at Cruiser Solutions (closest location I could travel to easily). They joined the two pieces, line-x'd, sanded and primed it for me with PPG product. Approx two years later I'm at this point and working with my local body paint friend to get the thing painted as I'm ready to reinstall after pre-fitting everything on and doing what "tweaking" and drilling I had to do prior to paint. The paint chosen was based on the original color, and is indeed Dupont Centari acrylic enamal. We'll see how it holds up over the long run up here in Maine. It was painted with the body/cowl in place and bolted up to the frame, and the steering column removed along with everything else.
Dgangle is right. That paint needs to go. The only solution is to box it all up and ship it to me immediately. My '40 used to be 621 rustic green, but is now more of a faded green/rust color. I will do a multi-year test and let you know how the paint holds up.
