A little advice if you have not sprayed 3 stage or candies: with new paint additives - there are many 3 stage paints that have been converted to 2 stage. Most of the factory 3 stage colors are now 2 stage unless it is a new color (exception is 3 stage whites). Chrysler had a candy apple red that was 3 stage and is now 2 stage - same with many Ford and GM colors. You may find one of these colors very appealing to you and you just may find out it is a 2 stage color. PPG, Nexa, Sikkens, Wanda, and on and on have converted probably more than 90% of these - and you can not tell the difference. I have been able to panel paint some of these with Wanda.
