Solid colors are more forgiving than metalics. Metalics require you to match the spraying technique used when the car was painted-too much air pressure and the color will be light, less atomization and the color will be dark, also texture plays into how the metalics lay down also sealer will affect how the metalics lay down. Metalics are trickier for sure. Fine silvers and golds are usually the toughest. Horizontal panels like hood,roof,and decklid are also tougher because of overspray control. Larger areas give more area to blend for a gradual transition. Spraying a test panel will confirm if your color is close enough to pull off the blend. How did you like the DBC500?
