House Of Kolor Purple Passion Pearl

Hi guys,

I'm planning on painting my car in House Of Kolor Purple Passion Pearl. I was just wondering if anybody had experience of painting this particular colour or indeed any of the other House Of Kolor Pearl Basecoats.

Is it ok to apply the paint straight over primer? As I've heard that it can take many coats to achieve good coverage?

Would it be best to lay a either a white or black (or indeed any other colour!) basecoat first?

I'd really appreciate any help\advice that you could offer.

Thanks in advance,

Jez.

PS. Here's some pics of this gorgeous colour:

I did my car in the same color......you CAN NOT put it over primer. It must have a base coat. So depending how much you want it to pop, depends on what color base. If you want the purple really bright, use a white base .If you want it not as bright use the black. You can also go with a gold or silver base which will give you a metallic look. The silver will be brighter than the gold but both look very cool. It's up to you which base to use, but you have to use one, going over primer will not work. Also stick with using HOK bases and clears, mixing other brands may give you problems down the road.

Thanks for the advice guys.

So it's basically the same as shooting Kandy over a silver or gold basecoat.

I guess the same rules apply I.E walk the car and try to achieve even coverage.

Oh and here in the UK i guess it'd be not $$$$$ lol

May rethink this and go for a Chrysler Purple instead... we'll see.

Cheers.

Jez.

Jez.........it may be the same as shooting candy over a base metallic, but don't get the wrong idea of candy and pearl. I will tell you from 30 yrs of experience shooting candies and pearls..........if you make a mistake with pearls, you can fix it, not easy but can be fixed. If you screw up a candy ......just call the priest. Like you said, you will be better off using a nice stock color. There are tons of very nice metallics and even some pearls that come factory on some foreign and american cars today.......good luck.

Every one thinks House Of Kolor (HOK) is so expensive....Really they are not, yes they might be higher then some other brands, but I think they run about the same price levels as most other Really Good brands.

I don't know about you, but after spending hundreds of hours on the preparations to just get to the point of thinking about the paint, i wouldn't trust my body work to anything but the best paints. Not to say HOK is the best, just i think there are 3-4 top paints available and HOK is one of them.

I have used there products a lot, and I think the extra is well worth the investment, they cover better and look sharper then most other brands. I painted about 4 projects with them last year and i was very pleased wit the turn out. I have to pop my BuckStop front and rear bumpers off my dodge thei spring, and paint them. the Powder-coating has been rubbed off in a few spots and rust is forming. I'll probally go with Silver Candy, or something close anyway. I have sprayed mainly there candy color, tangerine, magenta , Silver, blue and I bought some Marbilizer I'm going to play with when it warms up . I always purchase my paint from the web so I get a great price, but my local paint supplier does carry it, if I need something short notice. I use to shoot a lot of Emron, while I still think it's a very tough paint, and good for truck and other off-road vehicles, I prefer the HOK paints for anything street drive or super nice.

I do think you just plain stupid if you think you can use the cheaper brands, for primer, sealer and so forth, then switch to HOK or some other name brand for the final coats, it just don't work out. You have to use the same brand products all the way through, or you will not get the results, and might even get a mess on your hands.

According to what I see in my HOK book that looks to me like PBC34 Razberry over a white base..Last order of HOK came to me for about 45.00 per quart and 3 quarts were used on a Willys pickup..Had to get one more quart because the customers kid ran into moms truck with his bike..On that particular job SPI pure white base and SPI universal clear was used..Bit hard to say if that is the right color code and HOK tells the painter in the tech book to do a layout (test panel) to make sure the color is right..

Actually most days I spend less of the customers money on HOK than I would on some of the materials from the majors..

I'll be using HOK on my coupe, I think they're very reasonably priced. Mine will be a silver top half, purple passion bottom, hope to be done this spring.

HOK has a silver-tinted sealer (KO-seal II ??) that makes a good base for a kandy or in this case a passion-purple color.

I'm liking the speedshape for Purple KBC10, a Kandy basecoat !! nice and dark !!

I hope this works. This is HOK, 45 a quart, over a black base. It would look quite a bit lighter over silver. This is what I painted my 36 ford Coupe with, before buffing.

You know I'm not much of a fan for purple, but I have to admit that top car looks ****. I would personally put it over a gold base, like the pagan gold base. Remember with HOK paint you'll want to run a 75% overlap. Or you'll have a problem with tiger striping.

Dinger, that purple over black looks a lot like my '98 Dakota's factory "Amethyst" color.

I'll have to look for sure, but I believe it's about a 96 ford color, thistle purple. My wife picks out the colors, we saw the "passion Purple" at a HOK booth at a car show, she loved it. When I painted the motor and firewall, much too pink. We saw this color at a car show on a 40 Chev, asked what it was and it's on our coupe now, HOK paint. I hope to finish the car this winter. Here's a pic, not the greatest, it was here on the side of my house where I painted it.
