Anyone Painted over Blitz Black
 
I'm looking for an inexpensive way to get the flat black look on my 53. But this will not be the final paint on the car.
I want to coat the whole car and drive it while I'm doing body mods, then recoat that section. When I finally get done with all the mods I want to put regualr base/clear colored paint. Usually I use dupont. Originally I was going to go for duponts new hot rod black, But the blitz black seems real durable and cheap.

But can it be topcoated down the road with say dupont series of primer and bc/cc.

Thanks,
Nick

go with an epoxy primer instead, blitz black i don't think would top coat real well

If it were me I'd use Sem Trim black in a rattle can or a quart mix can. You WILL get the result your asking about and it'll sand back off easy as if it were a guide coat...Use laquer thinner 1-1 if useing the mix can.

I would only recomend something if I have done it myself.:thumbup:

If this turns into a "cheaper way " thread I can't help you there. I don't belive in cheap.

I thought all primers were pourous. I want to drive the car in the weather, but have the body work I've done protected.

Thanks, I didn't think about SEM stuff. I've used their interior paint and it's a great product.

If I can't do it inexpensive, I'll just spend the money and buy some dupont hot rod black paint, Then I know there should be an eventual way to topcoat it with dupont product.

Thanks,
Nick

i agree with dubz use an epoxy primer black easy to spray with your paint gun weather and rust resistant and you can wet sand it for that smooth finish when your going to paint

Primer
 
My paint expert recommended that I use a 2k epoxy primer as it will hold up and when I get around to final I can just lightly sand it and have a good base to carry on with so that is the way I am going..

as a finished "paint job" - which is more durable - the Blitz black or the black epoxy? I was planning to prime with the red oxide epoxy and topcoat with the blitz. Am i wasting time and money?

Thanks
