Yes they can be buffed, but what color are you planning on? As mentioned, if it is a metallic, you just can't buff it to any degree.

I feel that the basecoat clearcoat is SOOOOOO much easier. It is kinda like baseball compared to basket ball. You can take your time and lay it on.

crashtech Sanding and buffing work better on clear coat, IMHO. I only use SS when any buffing will be very light.

adtkart Sam.... I have used the SPI Black SS, but never had to sand and buff anything that I applied it on. Not that I am that good, just that I used it on a roll cage, engine compartment, and suspension parts. I have not tried the whites yet. I try to not paint anything white.

OneMoreTime Aaron,
You need to try some of the SPI white single stage.it is pure white and it buffs out just beatiful..I have found with single stage if one gets a flaw it is a simple matter to sand out the flaw and shoot a touchup..good stuff as far as I am concerned..BC/CC I think is best when a guy is doing candies and or pearls and flake..or wants that real custom color..

adtkart Do you need to bother with a 2 stage paint? That's up to you! It depends on what you want as a finished product. BC/CC will last longer. It is also easier to spray if you are new to painting, as mistakes can be repaired as you go along. If you get a run in the base, you fix it before clear. After the base is the way you want it, you shoot the clear. If there is a problem with the clear, you can fix that, and shoot more clear on it.

My understanding is that you can sand and buff single stage if it is not a metalic color. Since I use very little single stage, I can't say that for sure, but that is my belief.
