Can I shoot Martin Senior Paint over PPG?

I'm asking this question because I am repainting a hood on a 1965 fastback mustang. The car is a gold burnt orange color that is a PPG paint. I am wondering that after I shoot my PPG base on, if I can shoot some Black Martin Senior basecoat over that for stripes. I have to shoot the stripes on, because the whole car already has leman's stripes.

I already have a quart of Martin Senior Black left over from another car. Will these basecoats mix without solvent pop, or a bad chemical reaction??? If I can't mix them, then I'll just go ahead and order some PPG Black. I will also be using PPG clearcoat.

As long as you have allowed sufficient flash time before shooting the stripes you should be fine..

Thanks for the reply! I have another question. PPG makes omni products I believe. I can't get PPG reducer or hardner for my PPG paint, but the store only sells omni. Will i be safe using the Omni reducer, and hardner.

This is becoming difficult, because none of the stores in my area sell PPG. Which is also why I'm seeing if I could use the Martin Senior Black, over the PPG base.

My semi uneducated gut feeling, you are pushing your luck. I would feel a little less leery if you were using a single stage topcoat.
Because it is what I have, I pretty often use PPG DPLF epoxy primer for base coats, and topcoat it with Dupont Centari, with 793s activator.

One option is to spray a test panel. See what happens. Give the test panel a longer period of time to see in any adverse reactions show up.

It will more than likely be all right, but I would first do a very light dust for initial application then a little heavier second or third coat. What you do not want to do is lay it on wet right off the bat. Allow more than enough flash time between coats.
