Would A Single Stage Paint Be Good For

Hi Hot Rodders
I Am Planning On Painting My 83 Gmc Black. I Dont Have Much Experience In This But Am A Do It Your Selfer. My Question Is Would It Be A Good Idea To Use A Ss Paint In The Door Jams And Interior And A Bc/cc On The Exterior?

All Feed Back Is Greatly Appreciated

Thanks For The Input Guys

Ive Seen On Other Posts That By Mixing In Some Clear Into The Ss Will Give It More Depth And Looks Alot Richer. How True Is This?
Another Thing Would I Have To Color Sand And Buff With The Ss?

Its best to learn to walk before you start running but you can only cut and buff solid colors with SS and thats to remove dirt and orange peel so if you can paint and it looks like glass with no trash you dont HAVE to buff ,most guys cant so plan on a little buffing to make it look really good.
Stick with the SS and no clear at all ,it'll look great

last coat 60-40 with clear wont change the look but it will add a little more uv protection to dark colors.

Single stage is highly under rated. This car was done with Napa brand single stage urethane, cut and buffed (I'm a perfectionist) and that's it.

SS metallic and enamels gave SS paint the bad rep ...as long as its a urathane SS it'll spray ez and look great it cuts and buffs as well as clear does.When you think about it isnt urathane clear and urthane paint the same, with the exception being the paint has some color....
You cant just ask for SS paint at the paint store though because enamel synthetic and acrilic enamels are also SS .They'll also spray well and look good but they just wont last .Theres not much difference in the price either..

Generally speaking when it comes to paint, you get what you pay for. Any of the major brands, DuPont, PPG, House of Color, Nason, Kirker etc. are going to have inexpensive lines and higher grade paints to choose from. A good Urethane single stage will be a bit more expensive than the "cheapo" lines and well worth the extra money. If you just want to give it a quick color refresh in order to sell it or something the lowest paint line will do... but also generally speaking, the less expensive the paint the harder it is for a novice to get good results. Case in point is Duplicolor's ready to spray junk. Yes it's cheap and might seem like a good way to go but the paint is pretty much pure junk and will require (not an option) a complete color sand and buff in order to look presentable. The jury is still out when it comes to its durability. Muscle Car (the TV show) did a repaint on a '69 Mustang last year using Duplicolor and it was horrendous.

Bottom line, don't use the lowest grade and spend a few $$ more for a better grade of single stage, it will be well worth the money. ESPECIALLY if you're going to spray metallic. In that case get the best paint you can afford. The better grade metallics spray easier and you'll have a much better chance, as a novice, of having decent results.

I've never used Kirker either, but I have used PPG single stage, DuPont BC/CC, and Nason single stage (my deuce was painted with this) and all of them were good paints.

On my last DIY paint job that I did in Feb of 2010, I used Summit Racing brand SS urethane and was very pleased with the results. I applied 3 coats so I had plenty of film thickness to color sand with 1500 grit followed by 2000 grit and then cut and buffed. Many people thought that it was clear coated. It looked that good. BTW. It was Black Cherry Pearl, so you can color sand metallics and pearls with excellent results. IMO
