    I've got an old 1964 Fender Duo Sonic that I've had for about 20 years... I'm thinking of restoring it to it's original Olympic White color. The guy I bought from had stripped it completely and just clear-coated it natural.

    I don't have a compressor but may consider purchasing a cheap one for this project and others to follow... but anybody have any suggestions for getting the paint color to be as close as possible to the original or even better yet a process to re-do it with an aged/vintage look to it?
