candys are about the hardest of all paints to apply properly. when it comes to candy, its all about getting it on even otherwise it will look blotchy or striped. some colors are more prone to this than others. cobalt blue is a harder one to spray not to mention it bleeds like crazy. you can make your own non bleeding cobalt blue by mixing 50/50 violet and oriental blue. looks almost exactly like cobalt without the bad effects. in short to do a candy and have it come out real nice you will definately need top notch spray equiptment, real good gun control and alot of practice. if you like the look the kbc line is a little easier.

i use to do quite a few candys, all with hok, i would say probably the hardest paint there is to paint is a kandy,one foul up and your doing the whole car again, i would practice quite a bit before jumping into doing one,they are not easy,streaking, blotching, very difficult to get one rite, now when they are done rite there isnt anything any better looking, but now with so many pretty colors too choose from,( factory colors) i stay away from them, i try to steer any of my customers away from them, mike.

well to me it would be well worth it, ive had cars in the booth doing kandys on before and wish i would have never gotten into them, more trouble than there worth , so if he can spray one and get it rite, well worth the money in my opinion, mike.

No, he doesn't need to shoot the jambs and panel undersides at the same time as the exterior. In fact it would be better if he didn't. Have him shoot jambs first then do the exterior. There will be tape lines to deal with later but the end results will be much better. It would be insane to try to open and close the doors, hood and trunklid painting the jambs and exterior at the same time. JMO. Some like to shoot the exterior first then mask and shoot the jambs losing the transition on an edge then if any light overspray gets on the exterior it gets colorsanded off before buffing.
