Our's is much stronger than duplicolor. Good luck!

thanks ill post up some pics here when i get some test panels sprayed.

was going to do some today but were expecting some 40mph winds and rain here in the next couple of hours

that paint looks about the right place to start for what i want maybe just a tad less blue pearl

ill be using spi pure black base when i do the actual car , for testing i went out and bought 2 qts of duplicolor ready to spray jet black , and 2 qts of the duplicolor clear

the duplicolor stuff was cheap and was perfect for me to get a feel for spraying with the pearl on junk body panels

[UR*************************** m[/URL]...Home of cool custom paints that blow your mind not your budget.

should be warm enough this week i can play around with some spare body parts i have laying around

when starting out with the pearl in the base coat about how much pearl powder should i add per sprayable quart ?

same with the metal flake in the clear how much flake per sprayable qt would be a good starting point ?

Project89 painting has been postponed one more weekend , we thoguht it was going to be in the mid 60's this weekend but the temp is at 43* currently , the heater we have in the shop is coal fired so we cant run it to warm up the shop since it puts to much soot in the air

hopefully next weekend it will stay warm
