    As far as spraying goes, I'll choose PPG.
    Everything flows out better, better coverage, but there ain't no silver that can compare to Orion Silver from HOK.

    I usually buy a gallon of Omni silver base, and a quart of HOK Orion Silver.
    I shoot the 3-4 coats of Omni silver, then shoot the Orion Silver like I'm shooting a pearl.
    It gives it that deep deep metallic look.

    House of Kolor base is transparent.
    You can just buy the HOK Ko-Seal Metallic primer, then shoot the Orion Silver on top, it just cost more money.

    If I'm flaking, I just shoot flake right on top of the Metallic Primer from HOK.

    HOK for pearls and kandy, PPG for factory bases and for clear. HOK clears dont come close to ppg clears.

    we use hok for all custom work and ppg for factory repairs, house of color is more transparent then ppg so it generaly takes more coats to cover, but a quart of orion silver is 35 to 40 bucks and ppg quart is 100 to 120 depending on witch silver ( medium coarse and so forth)

    i love ppg its a really good system and it covers like that. as far as hoks pbc and kandy line i think they pretty much have all the companys beat. for price and quality.

    All the ms-42 I've shot is peeling. I sprayed it a few years ago before I knew what I was doing though so it could of been my fault.

    okay, so if im using a HOK pbc like silverwhite pearl or other bc color like orion silver, what clear from ppg would work well with it (and to help with coverage, what can i use as base coat), HOK swears to only use thier clear, but i hear HOK clear isn't the best,
    between the two will it really matter in the long run .........

    i have a matrix system at my shop and i can duplicate everything hok has except the kameleon colors ive been using it for the past ten years with no drawbacks the better clear to use for custom paint is the autoglass it comes in litres instead of a gallon my cost is around 130 for 10 litres of sprayable clear high solid urethane next thing you paint try it youll become a believer
