Was wondering if Eastwoods Single stage urethane is a good choice.

I like single stage urethanes for non-metallic colors, but I'd recommend going with an actual paint company (PPG, Dupont, etc)... for the paint.

My 69 was painted in 2001 with Standox which then was a  German Co. at that time but it has been bought by Dupont and is in paint stores. It looks as good today as 2001. It is not a trailer queen but it has been has been stored inside. When trying to match the Rally Green 1977 laquer on my other car we shot some cards with Chroma base and Standox and the Standox won the match.

That sounds good. What kind of paint was it? Urethane or acrylic enamel, etc.
