    My current restoration of the brammo "mule" car

    I decided after having a engine issue that I would restore the car back up. Here are a few pics from the past couple of weeks

    The paint is thermochromic paint. Changes with temperature

    So as I understand it, ... as it gets colder and darker your car gets harder to see ...












    OK, that's pretty cool and they had nothing like that back when I was painting

    So, ... if you live in the Pacific Northwet and you want a really expensive black paint job ... or, if you only want to see the true color twice a year under a heat lamp ...

    I live in memphis. Temperature is always extreme. But today, inside my dining room sat the hood. It was around 70 in the house, but the sunlight from the window changed it. But only where the sunlight was hitting it. Lol. And it was not expensive. The pigment costs $20 for 10 grams. Which can be used for a quart.

    Not expensive at all, pretty cool! Do you know if a lower temperature activation is available?
