the painter's much more important than the paint, and black's not kandy.
you'd be better off buying locally, but check out smartshoppers.com and autobodydepot.com.

agreed...

I can pick up a gallen of black single stage and give you a quick overnight spray job for a couple hundred bucks...

or I can take the same paint and spend a couple of months to give you a show stopping deep oil slick black paint job... for several thosound bucks


The paint is reletivly cheap......it's the work that goes with it that counts.

Kirker single stage urethane has given me good results. I have been really impressed with the results for the price. And its easy to work with.

murrays has a black enamel made by duplicolor that looks like real expensive paint when put down right, the gallon is under 45 dol plus you need the reducer. i used it on my niegbors 69 cady 2 yrs ago and it still looks like a brand new pain job. no joke i could nt belive it my self either. if your going to get it, reduce it a little more than the instructions and get a hardner for it that way it will dry alot quicker.

forget about trying to get to dry quicker........ Get a hardener SO IT WILL LAST. With out the hardener you will loose gloss in less then a year, and expect it to start breaking down in less then 5 years.

ALL TOP COATS SHOULD BE CATALYZED.

thnx for xtra info but i was saying dry faster because it would literity take 3 days to dry to the touch if you dont use the hardner with this particular paint, and you would have to wait atleast about a week and half before you can color sand and buff
:cool:
