Which type, base coat clear coat or..

For my 84 Z28, should i use basecoat clearcoat or acyrlic enamel? Can you tell me what the diffrence would be in the 2 if they were a matalic silver (sorry i cant spell right now). The acyrlic would be like 130 for the whole car...this include reducers/hardner, and the clearcoat would be like 250 for everything. Any oppinions would be great.

IMO the BC/CC is a much better finish, goes on a lot easier and is very forgiving in the application.

Ditto as well, I am about to have Ruby resprayed and am going BC/CC with a mica pearl that changes from blue to purple as you move round the car, if the guy sprays it right it is going to look so cool. Total cost of the paint is going to be about [converted from my currency to yours] $385, excluding primer, and the cost to respray about $800, this includes taking out the bits of rust, and lining up the trunk, hood, and all the other little problems that go with a 33 yr old car.
We did the 72 in a similar type colour, but it goes from dark blue to dark purple to black, also amazing, BC/CC, mica pearl and 1 years later still looks as good as new.

Acrylic enamel will start to loose its shine after the first year, especially if it is a metallic. bc/cc will keep its shine for years.
BC/CC ALL THE WAY!!

B/C is the easyest way to get that good depth and shine, also protection from UV.

But I don't see how you can buy the materials for $250.00??

Around here the 2 least expensive name brands are Dupont's NASON series at under $400 for bc/cc, and PPG's OMNI series at under $300 for bc/cc. I have no problem using NASON, actually, I like the stuff, but I don't like OMNI at all. OMNI's clear is way too thick, the fumes too strong , and doesn't flow well. It is also a B!#$% to colorsand and buff. But $250 is more then a reasonable price for either of them.

Be careful of some of the cheaper products,they don't spray good,flow good ,dry good, sand good, or stay on good. Go with a good name brand, it's easier to use, and the dealer will stand behind it better, now and later.

You get what you pay for.

I actually like Omni when you consider the price. I painted one of my cars with the single stage almost 3 years ago and it still has good gloss. It was only like 90 bucks for the whole gallon and the hardener. We used omni base/clear at a used car dealer I used to work for and it was a big improvement over Limco. I think just the opposite of there clear, its too thin, gotta be carefull so it doesn't run. Thats why I use Mar-hyde clear. Wanna try the Matrix clear, suppose to have great gloss and only like 130 a gallon. The problem with Omni is a lot of the base colors don't cover very well and doesn't match well. But its half the price of Deltron or Chromabase. all depends on what you are painting and how much you want to spend. I agree Omni smells though, gotta be the worst for that. The worst paint I ever used was Western, think made by acme. Don't even know if they still make it.

Kensith17. Do you really think Omni's Clear is too thin? I swear the last (and only) time I used OMNI in a bc/cc their clear had the constancy of maple syrup, no joke. Does Omni have deferent clears or did I just get some bad stuff. If OMNI does have a "thin" clear, then I may give them a 2nd chance. I did like their single stage paints, and their prices are cheap.
