Some very sharp looking cars in this thread. Have any of you flat black guys actually used John Deere Blitz Black? I've got a ratty '99 RS that I'm on the fence about sending it to the local automotive school to spray.

Application
  • If the existing paint isn't peeling or doesn't have large amounts of rust, then no primer is necessary. Sand with extra fine grit sand paper, wipe with a clean cloth and apply JDBB paint.
  • For spraying with an HVLP gun, use a 1.4 or 1.5 tip.
  • If a primer is needed, JDBB primer is recommended (it's available in spray cans, quarts, and gallons). Wait 36 hours after applying primer to apply paint.
  • John Deere thinner is needed, at a mix ratio of 8 parts JDBB paint:1 part John Deere thinner.
  • For faster-drying and harder paint, John Deere hardener can be used. It's available in pints. When using the hardener, the mix ratio is 8 parts JDBB paint:1 part John Deere thinner:1 part John Deere hardener.
  • Spray one light tack coat, wait 10-15 minutes, then shoot the full wet coat.
  • Wait no longer than 3 hours to apply a second coat. However, one coat with the 8:1:1 paint-thinner-hardener ratio should be adequate.
  • A gallon will easily cover a small car.

It all started as a joke that turned into a bet. When my car hit 200k miles, I was going to repaint it. I mentioned that I wanna use truck bed liner cause it would be funny my friend was convinced that I would never do it...so of course I had to prove her wrong.

Looks good, especially for a roller job. I was going to Line-X the front bumper, front fenders and front half of the hood on my RSTI, but I sold it first.
