Paint on a 1986 944 Turbo


Vehicle Information: Year: 1986; Total Mileage: 50,000 miles;

In the year 1986, there was no two-stage paint. If I am correct, we were just leaving the lacquer era, and going into lead free enamel years, well, one stage paint only, no clear coat. So if I need to repaint a door, on my metallic 1986 951, do I specify lacquer, or enamel? Does Porsche use Glasurit as one of its paint suppliers, and how about DuPont? If the original factory paint was lacquer, can I still specify Lacquer, I know we cannot use the current two-stage paint as substitute.
