DusterNut thanks for the replies everybody, if im going to base/clear it i might as well leave the flattener out and do a nice paintjob on it.

thanks again

baddbob Make sure you do a test spray to verify the gloss and color before hosing the car. The jobber sometimes has trouble obtaining the right amount of flattener for the specific product, some products work better than others. An example is PPG's Concept singlestage which works very well with a flattener but the Global singlestage is a real bear to get right requiring a whole lot of flattener compared to most paints. Dupon't chroma-one is the same way, takes a whole lot of flattener to get it right. Another oprion is to use a basecoat color with satin clear over it. I agree- using paints instead of primer surfacers. Bob

mrcleanr6 your going to be much better off priming the car normally then mixing up a flat acrylic urethane whatever color you want and shooting that. it will be much more durable and it will last. except for epoxies, primers dont seal and allow moisture to go through them. you will just be redoing it again in 6-12mos. goto your jobber and he can mix you up any color in any sheen. he should have both color and sheen samples.

firebird_red PPG flattener is DX685

You can intermix different colors of DPLF primer but I don't think you can tint it.

You could primer with black and then use your leftover concept with flattener.

Tintable primer

i want to do a colored shade of primer on my 68 impala wagon instead of the normal black. (already a black primerd wagon around here, i dont want to be another)

has anybody used this kind of primer? can i use pcl polyprimer or can somebody reccomend a primer i can use that i can mix some base coat in to tint it? i have a few pints of DBC in different colors that are left overs and would like to use them if possible. i also have about a gallon of PPG clear (cant remember the number) whats the number for the flattener for ppg?
