    Also do I have to use a sealer if paint is going on right away? Those paints from Eastwood is a single stage by the way that can be cleared in under18 hours

    single stage paint you dont clear over

    as far as sealer you wont have to use it if you sand the whole truck with 600 grit or finer.

    if you sand the primed spots with 320 like i said earlier then youll have to seal those spots


    also you dont want to skimp on materials. buy the best you can afford even if you have to wait to save up the money. you get what you pay for

    No you dont have toclear single stage but down here in Florida we do, the sun will eat up single stage quick.
    The only time Id use single stage is small areas of red, black, or white. And even then I wouldnt recommend it.

    Matrix is a decent clear at a decent price, and it will spray over PPG just fine.

    400 grit should be fine if its single stage

    And yeah listen to Fogle, you get what you pay for.

    Last but not least, the most important part of any paint job is the prep, prep it right and most likely your paint job will come out right. Not to mention last.

    I have a 82 k10 that I am trying to do a budget repaint on. As of now I am thinking a flat orange color. I have read a little bit about tinting primer does anyone know more about this? I am not looking for a show truck just a solid color since somebody work will be done. Just mix a quart of paint in with a gallon of primer..is it really that simple? Maybe there is an easier way of getting a cheap solid color spray I am all ears.

    if you want a cheap paint with a matte finish think about like rustoleum. you can buy it by teh qt and thin it down to shoot it through your paint gun.

    I think 320 is way to rough for finished primered work... I personaly go min of 400 wet sand on finished body work that has be primed I perfer 600 and then seal It youll be able to see 320 scratches if u look hard enough....

    Here's the paint I just got in. http://www.tcpglobal.com/kustomshop/HRF271.aspx
    This will be my second attempt at painting an entire truck and it's just gonna' be the HRFlatz paint, no clear. It's more or less a coat of paint to get it through the winter until I can do better this next summer...Comments? Suggestions?

    Nah, not right now. This is just something to last until I can get a "real" paintjob lol. But yes, it would look badass like the rendering we came up with below, but with black and that blue instead......:hmm:

    Just make sure you spray plastic adhesion promoter down first or all your work will bubble. 1 medium wet coat like base 15 mins flash time

    Hows Nasson Brands of paint? Thats all I can get locally here in town. $120 for primer, base and clear (quarts) with reducer and thinner (gallons). Would really like to buy it locally as they can try and match the color.

    Also, how much should I need for a hood, tailgate and possibly bed cover?

    is actually pretty decent paint, you shouldnt have any problems spraying it

    the only paint you should avoid at all costs is OMNI
    absolute garbage....

    Really, why do you say that? Just sprayed an entire truck today with Omni. Looks pretty decent, and only needs to last til' the kid totals it...
