HOK paint shooting car in sections

Im working on a project usung HOK Shimrim metalics and was planning on painting the car by sections at home.
Here the plan;

Shooting final coat of primer no less than a week prior, and wet sanding 1-2 days before shooting
In one day. Shooting HOK KoSeal white, followed by 3-4 coats of HOK Shimrin Metalic, followed by 2-3 coats of clear.

Im know this is not the preferred method of doing a paint job by sections and I know I will be wasting a lot of product, etc.. but my questions is will the color vary by panel since Im doing it in sections 2-3 weeks apart and a slight temperate difference?

Colors are HOK Shimrin Galaxy Grey and HOK Shimrin Orion Silver metallcis

First off i will tell you that HOK is one of the more difficult paints i have used. I would not recommend painting the car in sections with this line of paint unless you paint everything at the same time which is still a risk imo. If you are painting different parts on different days i would 100% say no to that. i have done it personally with Hok and it makes it even worse since it is a metallic. Too many variables to be messed with. Hoped this helped.

2x on that..i would not even load the gun until I had the car fully assembled and ready...of course the primer and sealer is done and ready when using HOK anything..Only way I know to a section job is by using solid colors..

Thank You

Thank You.. Thats exactly what I was afraid of.. Im gonna have to take a day off of work and rent myself a paint booth.
A buddy of mine told me this and didnt believe it.. I though to myself its not a custom color mix or anything and didnt figure it would make a difference

What about.....

Since Im doing a two tone top and botom, can I shoot the bottom section one day and the top the other day.. Then clear coat with the second half on the second day? I know I would probably have to consider the recoat window also..

I will agree with the other guys. You are setting yourself up for an almost guaranteed mismatch in the panels, and you will get tired of people pointing at it and whispering to their friends "It doesn't match". {:-)

Check the directions. These guys spend a lot of bucks figuring all this stuff out for the painter, there may be a few exceptions but there is also the element of risk involved by not following their recommendations. Most I have seen is about a 12 hour window. You can cut some time off the paint by shooting them in the a.m., buy some of the 3m tape (blue?)that allows you to tape the section off and reshoot the other half a few hours after the first coat. Then you can clear.

I can not agree more, you are setting yourself up for disappointment sure as poop stinks. This is VERY difficult even for the pro (I have worked with MANY pros who couldn't pull it off).

It blows me away how many cars I will see at a show, we are talking high dollar rods with panels that don't match! ARRRRRRRG this is like going out on the town with pillow head.

You should be-able to do the two colors on different days. Omni has a 24 hr window and you can push that a little I've went to 32-48 hrs. The main thing you want to watch for is any dust or over-spray on the first color. Or you could clear your first color scuff and re-clear when you clear the second color.
