Acrylic Laquer Auto Paint

Hi I am looking to paint my car with laquer paint and was wondering if anyone ever used this? http://www.paintforcars.com/acrylic_lacquer_paint.html and what do you think of it? or is there a better brand that I should be looking for?

There has been a lot of info on lacquer paint here almost all of it negative, there is just not much good to say about it (unless of course the person is selling it like in that link). Lacquer is old outdated technology and so inferior to today's paints I just could not imagine why anyone would be using it anymore. In spite of how the cost may look at first it actually is not cheaper than some of the economy urethanes because it will take so much more of it plus it will not hold out for very long at all. This subject has been just about beaten to death and I think most will agree that it is best to forget about using lacquer and use one of the modern paints that will last a while.

trinity 1945 sells acrylic urethanes for the same price as they do laquer.. does not make sense to use laquer, especially from that company

Keep away from the lacquer. If you do decide to use it, just remember that every square inch of lacquer has to be compounded to get even a remote shine to it.

urethane is easier to use. 9 out of 10 people can not shoot lacquer right. you'll end up with a mess you cant fix.

I really dont want to paint the car with a base coat clear coat although I have sprayed it before with good success, I'd rather spray it with a single stage, Something that could be wet sanded and buffed , I really appreciate some suggestions. reason being this is going to be a backyard paint job, no spray booth. what would be a good brand? and what kind of work is it to wet sand and buff? a single stage type of paint

i use ppg concept for color . depending on color on sanding. some reds will orange up on you when sanded. but you can shoot it to get it covered let dry then sand and final coat it. i block everything before my final coats .

there are tons of paint brands out there. i don't use them so i cant say. i use spi for everything but color. then it's ppg . the spi is priced right, ppg is a little proud of themselves but i choose to pay it for the quality. don't get me wrong, if i have to paint a tractor or something i'll use acme


what color ?

I have used every thing from Centari and Nason to generic brands that I bought cheap. They all work when used with a catalyzer but you get what you pay for. The cheaper paint is thinner and doesn't go as far so you have to buy more. Always remember, even when spraying in your back yard remember to wear a proper respirator. One other thing don't forget that over spray can travel and land on your neighbor or for that matter your mothers car. Lacquer is no longer sold in these parts and they are even talking about making us use the water based crap.

I your earlier post you said you want to use single stage and cut and buff...Then you say you want to go gold. Cutting and buffing a gold metallic color will not work with good results, the sanding and buffing will break into the metallics and you will get a undesirable result. Base clear is the best way to go with a metallic color,especially a gold.

I would think by the choice of epoxy primer you have on your car you are going with PPG, the filler primer I use from PPG to go over DP-90 is K-38. JMO Tim

So because I am painting the car with that type of color I cant really paint it a single stage? and cut and buff it? I really dont want to paint the car with a base coat clear coat, I really want to paint it with a single stage paint with no clear, I am going to paint the car a light gold color, what would be a good choice? (Centari Imion ) I need something that can be rubbed out in case of bugs etc. ??

If you want to sand and buff the surface you better use bc/cc. Singlestage metalics can be sanded and buffed very very lightly but it is a very touchy process and if you cut into the metalics or through a layer of paint it shows big time. Solid, nonmetalic singlestage colors can be buffed with no problem.
BC/CC really isn't very difficult when compared to laying down a perfect looking singlestage metalic. Keep in mind with that color or any other fine light colored metalic that the surface needs to be sanded with 600 grit minimum with no flaws because these colors will highlight any texture differences.
Check out HOK for some nice gold basecoats that spray easy and are priced right.
