Get it all from one source along with the use information and you are going to be eliminating a LOT of headaches.

thats why i figured id either use the summit brand stuff i have, or get all new stuf fin black from eastwood, the only thing that wouldnt be comming form eastwood would be the pearl.

with the pearl isnt that a pretty much universal thing u just mid in with the clear ? if i were to do it as bc/cc instead of single stage ?

my idea is to lay down the black base coat then mask off the stripes and shoot the stripes witht he clear/pearl mix , then after shoot the 3-4 coats of clear over the whole thing

Painting my twin turbo camaro ( helppppp)

as some of u rember last year i started to paint my car using the rolled on rustoleum. it was a temp paint job till i could spray the car. well i only ever managed to get the hood done , and the rear deck. the stuff help up great for a full year in direct sunlight.and still looks as good as the day i put it on.

but im not going to finish the car off with it im going to strip that stuff off and apply a black epoxy primer ( eastwood) and then spray it with a single stage eastwood boulevard black

what are u guys thoughts on this paint

here is the epoxy primer
Epoxy Primer and Catalyst Kit Black Gal

and here is the paint

Epoxy Primer and Catalyst Kit Black Gal

they also have this in a bc/cc instead of a single stage which i thought about getting and tossing in some blue or red pearl in the clear just enough to give it it a slight color tint at certian angles
also can anyone see a difference between the boulevard black and this one??
