Hi! I want to recolour my bmw, but I want it to do perfectly. for example like on this picture. Is there should be a special laque or paint? what would you recommend to receive the result like that?

That SS lookin sweet, but paint usually looks way better in a pic than in person.....To get a deep black paint job , spray the base blk, dont use cheap paint like Omni or Nason cause cheap blk paint for some reason has a brown tint to it....on the first 2 coats of clear i mix a lil blk in the clear.than bury it with 4 more strait coats of clear......and when ya buf it out wait to make sure the clear is nice and hard , cause if you buff it in a few days after clearin the clear will still be soft and will swirl real bad......and check out Alsa paint for i see they have a Black Kandy concentrate...never sprayed it , but have used Alsa products and they are some serous stuff, .....

www.coastairbrush.com sells alsa. have some other stuff including hok.

wanted to mess with alsa, but just wondering how durable the paints are. when i read up on them they tend to only use them with graphics, motorcycle tanks and models. wondering how long it would last on a whole car. the chrome paint would probably be best on some plastic parts. when i get some extra cash ill be at coast testing some things out. i must still think im in kindergarten, love me some paint

I can agree with you OrangeCounty58. I have alot of ideas floating in my head and if I just had more time and cash I would try alot of them out. :biggrin:
