Question Candy apple paint

I am going to attempt my first candy paint job. Can anyone give me advice on paint manufacturers? Which is the best or least desirable to use? What should I avoid? The "painting" is not an issue for me, the right product for the job is where I have concerns. Any advice would be greatly appreciated <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

I used PPG on my SS Gold base with a Red (Cant remember wich red) then 3 coats of Clear. I spoke with PPG rep and did exactly what they said. I did my car a little over a year ago and have never sanded and wheeled the car, it still looks great with no drying down (5 coats of Gold,7 coats of red and 3of clear). Make sure your car is all one color before you start it will show if it is not. Hope this helps. Good luck it is worth doing.

ps: PPG told me it would only take 2 or 3 coats of each color keep that in mind Mine should have had 1 or 2 more Red but I ran out again

CNY.PT PPG is a very good paint in what ever medium you choose. House of Kolor is a bit more exspensive but is also a very nice paint company, and since they are more geared to custom paint applications such as candy's and marblizers I would have to recomend House of Kolor.

Thumbs up

I HAVE USED HOUSE OF KOLORS TO DO CANDY KOLORS AND IT WORKS GREAT, THEY ARE MANY DIFFERENT BASECOATS TO CHOOSE FROM DEPENDING ON WHAT COLOR YOU WANT TO HAVE I HAVE ONLY USED A GOLD BASE COAT FOR THE KANDY APPLE RED COLOR. THERE IS ALSO A WEBSITE FOR HOUSE OF KOLORS AND THEY CAN SEND YOU ANY INFO YOU NEED FOR ORDERING THE PRODUCTS AND HAS A GUIDE OF WHAT PRODUCTS YOU NEED TO GET FOR WHAT YOUR PAINTING. GOOD LUCK AND SEND PICS.
