Painting with Dupont Hot Hues Paint

Does anyone know if this is a type of paint that can be repaired if it is scratched or if repairs are necessary? I've heard that some paints cannot be matched and the whole care must be repainted. Help!!

depends, is it candy? If it is, good luck. It takes a VERY experienced painter(experienced with fixing candy!) to do the job. Which Hot Hues color is it? Do you know if the color was "tweeked" in the mixing room? Alot of times painters will add more pearl, ect.. in it to get the custom shade the customer wants. If it is a standard HH mix, then there should be no reason an EXPERIENCED painter couldn't repair it. Alot of times it is EASIER (and only SLIGHTLY more expensive)to repaint the whole car instead of repairing. You have to figure the time invested making sure everything is just right to make an unnoticable repair.

are you deciding whether to paint with hot hues, or are you in need of a repair on an existing paint job?

Using the top brands of paint I have not had one that I couldnt match close enough to blend some or harder then others and most of the time you have to blend into the next panel
