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

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

Ronald McDonald house.....bro.
Ya the benz is dope!
Is anyone good at photoshoping. I have an old audi that I am thinking of getting painted flat black. With a body shop. But before I do that. I want to see a picture of it.. Pretty sure it would look ganster. But before the money is spent would like to see a picture. Can anyone help me out?
I'm just going to put this here.
This is my plan of attack for my mk3 once this Canadian Winter Lets up
I talked to the guy in person, said it was straight forward and turned out really good!
Found this, so my possibilities are now limitless.
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.. :/
