if i want a gold base coat and brandywine over that
do you lay down more coats of base coat with the flakes,and then 1 coat of the kolor of your top coat,to get the gold base to come out
abit when the sun or street lights hit it.then add the clear coats.
1 guy told me he layed down 16 coats of clear on his grand national
is to many coats
For a caddy for jambs and all it will take about 2 gallons, maybe a little less. Depends on how you do it. But a gbody u could get by with 1 1/2 or less. U need 4-6 coats of kandy on top of your base if u use HOK. And then I put 3 coats of clear. Never put more than 3 coats of clear on at a time. If u want it real slick sand it down after the first 3 and put another 2-3 coats of clear. Sounds like a lot of work but its really not and worth it if u have the time.
yes and if you want the red dark i would shoot the full 6 coats.....don't skimp out i shot some test panels using different coats and if you want dark 6 coats look good the other coats like 3 or 5 look sorta like a bright red........
not to sure if this matters in your case, but if the car is really old it might have a laquer paint on it and should be completly stripped, otherwise you may have a problem with your paint job over top of that.
I sprayed 2 coats of epoxy primer to seal the car then 2 or 3 coats of highbuild primer then blocked it down with guide coat, from there you might want to use some glazing putty to fix minor imperfections, then I put 2 or 3 more coats of primer surfacer on my car which will be blocked with a wet sand then base coats and done deal.
Whatever you call it, I can sell you a brand new E&G Classic/5th Wheel Kit or replacement parts to refurbish you old one. Buckets, housings, lights, chrome bands, lids and any and all other repair parts.
