Post primered paint job

I want to put a primered paint job on my 66 chevy pickup but do not want to worry about all the moisture primer draws.Is there a higher qaulity paint out there that looks like primer.

you could also use single stage paint and add a dulling agent to tone down the shine to a subdood suede of your choice.

Old trick used by nostalgia rodders who want a durable suede paint job is to paint it with high quality color coat/clear coat system. Pait it first with the primer color then paint it with some coats of flat urethane clear.

I agree with CarGuy, DPLF 90(black)or your choice of grey, red oxide, green, white,(may be more, can't remember, and they are now called DPLF, they no longer make the DP) or a combination of any of these to yeild almost any flat color you want. After you have maybe a couple of coats on, you can wet sand it with 1500-2000 to a killer gloss with a mat finish, kinda hard to explain because it is really not a shine, but is not a dull finish either. It is a very low build liquid, not made at all for sanding or building layers, just coating a surface. You have to do all of you prep work with sandable primer(K36/38/200, etc) then shoot the DPLF on. Looks good, never goes outa style, and easy to match or fix if you have a mis-fire. Although it is not intended for a top coat, it gets used quite often for that purpose. If you shoot clear on top of it, you must use a flattening agent to keep a dull finish. If you choose to do this, why even bother using DP, just pick color and clear coat over it....Hope this helps...PACO

a cheaper way to go may be to use a quality sealer, most are tintable and seal out moisture. they have a semigloss shine, the clear would be the preferred method though.

John Deere Blitz Black, it is a tractor paint and is really tough, but make sure to use John Deere thinner. I don't know if you can see very well, but that is what my car is.....good luck <img src="graemlins/evil.gif" border="0" alt="[evil]" />

p.s. you know it is good paint cause it is illegal in California

Trick from another world

In regards to the primer/topcoat issue:
I'm a musical horn repairman, and a lot of the older horns have whats called a satin silver plating. The silver isn't different, just the metal underneath. They sandblast it before they silver plate it. Same applies to a car. A light sandblasting will make anything put on top of it look "matte". Even glossy clearcoats look flat if applied this way. Just don't sand anything, no matter what.

I'm wanting a flat black prime job . Body work done and primed and blocked once.Now I'm going to prime it one more time block that and spray it with a black base coat and leave it at that.At a later time I could fine sand the base and shoot more color then clear it. Will the base coat by it self protect the primer? Tom
