I think you'd have to thin the paint, and lay down a very thin coat then wet sand with a very fine grit, lots of water. I wouldn't prime it first though, if you did I'd use a primer tinted the same as your topcoat, again super thin coat. Do some research on how these weather and sand with a plan so it doesn't look haphazard. Once you are satisfied I'd still consider polishing in some areas especially where the birmabrite shines through,my series 3 is a little shiney at the bear metal, also the buffer if used with a heavy hand can feather in the bare spots. It's doable, I'd practice with a spare part or the hood first, easy to strip and retry.

What I wouldnt do is use a media blast of some sort as it will leave a tooth in the aluminum and it will not replicate the smoothness the birmabrite has inherently.

You have to be real careful with recreating patina as it's so easy to fudge up. Reminds me of the guitars that are "relic'd". I haven't seen one come close to an authentic worn by time patina.

paint it then hit (lightly) with 1000 grade wet&dry with a dash of pure soap and lots of water, no dishwasher soap.

Good idea with the tinted primer as somebody else said on here.

instant patina

I am going for that look. I hate to say "look" but I just want the body to be no-frills and for me not to worry about it. My truck had a half ass paint job in the UK (complete with plenty of over spray) and has a darker blue over the original Marine Blue. I would love to be able to sand/buff/feather the top layer a bit to expose the original paint.

I'll have to check with the painter Charles- he has been doing the local dealership's work for near 30 years.
