Man....I remember this thread!
Well my 32 Ford had JD Blitz Black for about 24 hours. The look was good.....but......my painter showed me where he took his fingernail and lightly went over the finish and it left a mark. This was the next day. The paint scuffed very easy and I figured it would look like crap in no time. He showed me a customers car where he painted the roll bar and dash with a gloss black acrylic enamel with a flattening agent. It was tough as nails and had a nice suede / satin finish.
This was my experience with JD Blitz Black. I know its very inexpensive. But for the time it takes to prep a car for paint, I would rather do it with a paint that will look good for a long time for a few more dollars.

Totally forgot this thread. I did indeed get the top painted with the BB, it actually turned out really nice and is hard as can be. After all primer and paint work was done I left it in the garage to cure for a week prior to installing back on the blazer. I'll have to find the pictures on one of the CD's I put them on. At this point I have floorpans to do in about 3 weeks, then the front end conversion parts should be here about a week after the pans are in, finally I will get to the final body work on the "blaze"(K-5). The whole thing is going to be BB, this stuff is an easy application and tough as nails. I'm sold on it.

I know that this is an old thread, etc but I remember reading this thing when it first started. Yeah I have never been signed up on here, just have always read all the threads on this forum, etc but thought that I might as well sign up. Anyways, I am wondering on that quote you put up MRGM, is this true will it scratch and leave a dull mark? I know flat black spray can paint all does that and it scratches VERY easily and leaves a dull mark. And by scratching it I don't mean it leaving a big deal scratch mark, I just mean a dully white or grey mark. I did my interior with 6 dollar Krylon flat black spray can paint and then used 99 cent crappy paint and all these other ones and every kind of flat black I have used so far does that dull scratch type of thing.

Does this JDBB paint do this? If not then my plans are to paint my 66 Ford truck in flat black and then tape out flames and do a clear over that to have gloss black flames. Think this will work? Any info? Someone told me to put a clear under the JDBB paint because everyone keeps telling me that any flat color is still pourus? True or False, what's your oppinions? I really don't have much money to spend on paint right now since this is my everyday driver and right now I am putting my money into the tranny, engine, suspension and lowering the thing.

Thanks a lot and great forums you guys have here. I like the fact there isn't that much complaining.

Skip the tractor paint IMO. The absolute best singlestage satin black urethane I've ever used is Sikken's Autocryl Rally Black, it is very durable and will not mar. It comes with the flattener already mixed in, just add hardener and reducer and you're ready to spray. Very nice looking satin paint. Bob

Do a search to find Akzo Nobel's web site, there you should find a distributor list. You won't be dissapointed.

Hi guys, Im doin a JD black paint job and was wondering what would happen if i just do a 8-1 mix of paint and reducer instead of the 8-1-1 with paint, reducer and hardner? Thanks for the help...im lookin for the advantages and disadvantages and if it will even work well...

Thanks
Chris

I've sprayed it both ways. The hardener didn't seem to make it super scratch resistant. I like the look. It's not for everyone. Its your ride, do what you want.
