I could get kbc's for around $50 a quart including the reducer (you don't need a catalyst). If you're only spraying the body, I'd say 4 to 6 quarts will do it. It's always better to have a little paint left over than to not have enough, so I say up to 6 quarts.

Also, like "swangin" said, it depends on what color you have. Some colors have a higher pigmentation than others, so you will need less material than with a paint that has low pigmentation.

WTF


HOK kbc18q is 47.58 per qt x 6
HOK sg114q is 55.92 per qt x 6

I thought this was a kandy basecoat?? :confused: :confused: :confused:
This is a 3 stage paint. basecoat, then that sg114q shit, then the clear.
the above products was $618 for 6 qts...and that didn't even include Primer, Reducer, or clear

I'm lost! It seems like it would be cheaper to buy a full Kandy

No, it's still cheaper than true candy. Not too much though. It's easier to spray though. You can see how people can pay between $2000 to $3000 for a paint job, the materials aren't cheap. Good luck.

street sweepaz sprays these alot


where are you bob???? :biggrin:
*** Well actually i mix kandy koncentrates w/ clear alot more... But , these do look good enuff to fool 90% of people out there into believing that you have a full Kandy paint on your car ...... Thats cause it is real Kandy & pearls mixed together.......


IT IS CHEAPER THAN FULL KANDY PAINT.... You need to lay down about 5 coats of kandy paint -- according to the paint books .. you need hardener & that is about twice the cost overall.... Here is real prices out of a book: Enuff for door jambs & all...

1) Base -- Orion silver $115 gallon -- you can find cheaper urethane base for about $75-$90 + Reducer at $25.82/ 2 qts...
2) KBC Kandy Violette $41.61/Qt X 6 qts - $249.66
3) Reducer-- Mixes 2:1 $38.87 /gal.
4) Clear coat -- anywhere from - $70-$300/gal -- thats all up to you on that but , I spend $100 for PPG DCU 2021 -- i get a deal!!!
_____________________________________________________

Kandy: You can bu by the gallon but, im not sure on price..
1) base is the same....
2) Kandy Violette---$49.02 /Qt X 8qts -$392.16
3) Catalyst --$160.05 /Gal....
4) reducer-- $38.87/Gal..
5) Clear-- is same ....


** Remember 5 coats of paint is just about painting a car Twice......

If I don't plan on spraying the top because we're getting a full vinyl top, will that knock off a qt or two?
A little less than a quart, depending on your spray techniques.
