Im going to be painting a three stage paint job. I have a 68 mustang with the serial numbers on the top of the fender skirts. I buried them in primer and feather fill during the restoration process. I sanded them both back to metal and cleaned the numbers and letters out with a scribe. So the serial numbers are clean and easy to read with light primer over them. My question is will the basecoat / intercoat clear and clear coat cover them back up and not be able to read them? I would think they should show thru just like a defect does. I think the reason I lost them before is from sanding the added layers of primer. How well did your serial numbers show up after paint? BC/CC or Three Stage paint jobs.
