      I am loving that Mercedes. How much did the base paint and the matt clear cost? Also what is the name of that base coat color (I know that its black but is it a specific kind of black?)

      base coat color is Chrysler dx8 ... black ...

      my cost on the paint for that car was right around 500 for the matt clear, activator and color

      Not sure if anyone asked yet. But estimate, about how many cans of spray paint did you guys use to do the whole car? Prep and priming tips are useful too.

      if you're not even enrolled in a course you are a looooooong way away from spraying a 3 stage paint man.

      what he said...
      especially when you are gonna try to blend that finish accross the back of a car. someone is gonna have to teach you how to get the pearl just right. youll prolly end up shooting 10 spray out cards
      and as far as tinted primers and sealers go......the sun will beat the hell out of and bleach whatever tint you have in it. it has to be cleared. just put a matting agent in the clear, mix for desired gloss.
      and to most of the rattle bombers: say hello to media blasting

      I used about ten cans of krylon olive green. For prep I basicly sanded the car down with 800 and then wet sanded it with 1000 & 1500, taped and sprayed. And about two twelve packs later I had an olive green jetta.

      Sounds like a piece of cake. Of course I have a mk2, so I have a bit of rust to take care of. Grind down with a wire wheel, fill, sand, primer, wet sand, topcoat.

      progress. so far: 4 cans of Valspar Tractor and Implement low gloss black spray paint. Coming out pretty good so far. I might lightly spray truck bed liner on it to even it up a bit more.

      You should have won showing it like that, makes for a good story too..

      Did you polish out that Krylon in the showday pictures or is that just washed?

      A bit off topic.. But I painted my Audi flat black on Sunday.. And I'm in the process of putting it back together.. And I touched the paint after it dried a few places with my oily hands, and I don't know how to clean it.. I tried but it's either not working.. Or leaving a whiteish residue.. :/
