jd black

There high gloss is very good. And why not put it on a driver. Farmers use it and they drive and use there vehicles every day, and there vehicles get lots of abuse and it holds up good.

Why

Well The Caddy is a four door mild, mild custom, so thats why Im going with the flat black. Thats how we do it here in California. Noticed the shaved door handles and 57 caddy hubcaps with bullet centers.

Also this is completely a "do it yourself project" Never hit the shop...
I use the satin or flat colors also to hide some minor imperfections. Low Budget kustom..... Thats why we are all in this forum right?
Some people just dont get the flat or semi-flat color applications

I get more looks in this car shaved and all the side trim gone than I got when it was completely stock...
Next step. Suicide doors.......

Man that looks GOOD!!! Can you PLEASE get me some more closer shots of that car and more info on how you sprayed it, problems you came by when spraying it, etc? I think I am going with that high gloss now. I would also think the medium gloss with high gloss flames would look cool too but I will do that on my old metal bodied golf cart first and see how that looks.

Thanks a lot for anymore pics, info and comments on this.

issues

I have had no issues at all...... I did the first coat light. The second coat was really wet. I should have done a little better prep before painting. Getting Paint Room really washed down. I should have put a paint suit on. I had some lint in the paint...

But the paint it self is excellent. Best $35.00 bucks I ever spent. Plus I did not even use all of the $35.00 worth of JD Paint. So figured it cost me around $23.50 to paint my Impala.....

When the paint starts to break down and chalk up in a year or two you can probably just wash it off with laquer thinner and spray it again, yeah, I guess $35 per year is cheap, just a whole lot of work if you're redoing it again and again. Keep the kids with soda far away from the car, bird droppings, etc.- I bet would etch the paint big time if not washed off imediately.

They use this stuff on their tractors right? So I "think" that soda or bird droppings would be safe, I mean those tractors do go through a lotta crap. Just my opinion, I've never used this stuff.

I just purchased a Gallon from this company based out of San Diego for about $100 with shipping. Im in Los Angeles (boo hoo no John Deere Blitz Black Available here)
Im supposed to have it by Wednesday. I will most likely shoot my car on Wednesday night and I will post pictures soon.

I shot the roof of my 64 Caddy with Blitz Black in Spray cans. what can I say "Awesome Color and Finish but too much stripping. I will wetsand tonight and either armor all it or wax it. If this stuff from ebay work good I will resand the roof top and do it with this paint. I was also impressed by the rest of their colors like midnight Blue, Dark Purple, etc.....
Always wanted a purple cadillac???????

John Deere Primer

Well, I didn't pay attention to the information in this forum and now I'm paying. I sanded the hood of my 66 chevy pickup in preparation for the JJBB paint, and put the John Deere primer on it. I don't have a garage and it's been rainy in Georgia for 3 weeks! I am now seeing rust coming up under the primer. I realize I'm going to have to re-sand the hood but I don't know what to do about the primer? I am being told to use urethane primer but is it going to be comapatible with the JJBB?

I am not a paint pro by far, but i used a 2k primer on my 41 and came back with the jdbb but the first time it was to shiny so i resanded it and added a flattening agent to the jdbb then shot it again and i love how it turned out, no -problems so far.

PS: If anyone wants Blitz Black paint and they arent able to get it. I can buy it and ship it to you for a very small fee. PM me if interested. I can do it if I have at least 5 orders.
