Need Help with PAINT -- Black Cherry

Can anyone assist me? I am going to be spraying the car in the next couple of weeks and am looking to do a black cherry. I have been to the Sherwin williams and they really do not have a predefined mix for Black Cherry..

Can some one guide the misguided and help me get the right stuff? PPG or any other would be fine.

THanks!

lack cherry paint

I painbted my pick up Black Cherry a while back. It was a Chrysler color. I can not remember the application year though. When I got through the paint looked more like brown cherry I was very dissatisfied. I am going to re-paint with House of Color. They do not have a pre-mixed color but their tech group will tell you how to get the color you want. It entails a base coat of black an intermediate coat of Brandywine and clear finish. Costly but beautiful.

paint bikes everday black cherry is black base coat with candy color over top. i did one of my own bikes with burple over the top instead of brandywine. red over black base is another excellant color. lots of candies available thru HOK House of Kolor PPG is very close & little cheaper. other brands do tri coat which is their transparent =translucent paint on top of dark base. look at black pearl for base coat to give a little flash in right light. not pushing my webpage ART4URHOG.com has bike section with green on black base to give effect of alligator skin. see ya jw

Corvette and Cadillac have an optional color in 2002 and forward which is called Dark Cherry. You should be able to find it in any standard brand of automotive finish. You can spray it over black base or over a gold base. The gold will give it more highlighs in sun whereas the black will result in a nearly black paint if in the shade. The truck you see in the avatar is spayed over the gold.

Go through House of color. Use there candy base coat line, color name, Wild Cherry Two to three coats of this and you will be supremely satified, I personally love the color. Its somewhat mettallic, so if you rather a smooth glass opaque look do as the gentlman before suggest as lay down a black base with a true wild cherry candy then top coat with clear. The candy base coat line will give the depth of candy and is much easier to spray and match.
