Default need someone with some basic paint skills and equip to do some sick satin black.

hey so didn't want to threadjack so i'm starting a new thread here. i'm looking for a person/place with a compressor and hvlp gun to do some satin black paint, it's the jd blitz black that i want to shoot the car with, anyone with a hookup? the paint shouldn't be too expensive and that's why i want to do it, plus it's a decent looking satin black. plus it's tractor paint so minimal prep work and max durability, not to mention easy touchups.

looking for the free to very cheap price range, i'll bring subs and sodas too

i'm pretty sure there is no place i know of in provo to shoot paint outside of a real garage,and isn't it too cold now to shoot paint outside?

the whole car. it's primered right now and that stuff is faded and looks like crap. it's going to be mostly a track car so the satin black will look sexy enough

but we could make a party of it if a couple people want to shoot some parts as well. with this satin you can't use normal paint over it fyi, without a lot of stripping and sanding it off

what satin black are you using?

single stage acrylic enamel?

Or are you doing a dual stage, 1)selecting the black you want and 2) mixing the flattening/satining agent into your clear coat for the dull finish.

As of right now I am leaning towards the latter. I have the PPG paint code for the ferrari color I want and I am going to spray a clear coat with the flattening agent. you'll find if you are putting in the time body work this is the longer lasting solution.

That single stage overtime will be splotchy some spots will shine up due to getting rubbed on, or chamoised. And other spots will fade unevenly do to sun contact. just thought I would throw in my two cents.

Not sure how nice of quality you were looking for.

hmm, if i could do it cheap enough i would like to do the ferrari two step one, i've looked around and that is by far the best looking and lasts like normal paint, i had played with the single stage idea but it seems i can't paint over the john deer paint later if i wanted so that may be reason enough to not go that direction. i can do most body work(and the car doesn't need much) myself, it's the actual shooting of paint that i'm liable to leave fubar, never done it and i'm not even very skilled with a rattle can.

the two step paint I was talking about isnt specifically a "ferrari" color or technique the gray I chose is a ferrari color and then I am using flattening agent to mask the gloss.

if you do this way you can pretty much use any color you want.

at one period I too wanted to do Satin Black. Sherwin Williams actually carries a one stage acrylic enamel that is satin black.

I never confirmed this although i tried calling many times but the number is no good the Sherwin Williams stuff is i think what these guys used.

a wrap is possible but it would be alot Oracal 970ra vinyl for a 60"x25 yd roll run $611.02 they only sell it in rolls.

I would be interested in doing it if you you paid for the material and i would provide all the supplies for install.

its hard to keep clean, not hard to get to look good. the hardest part would be spraying the roof, just like any other car. the only difference between spraying regular paint and flat/matte paint is that its not shiny, but when you mess up with either kinds you still see it. any experienced painter can do it, and do it right but if it isn't painted right, it is MUCH harder to fix

so what are all the wrap companies and the wrap names, google= fail when it comes to searching for wrap material (google search-vehicle "matte black" wrap -helmet -insulating -wheel -tire -bug)

yah i'm sure i could install it can't be much harder than tinting windows, man THAT is a pita. anyone know if this adhere's to primer well? any sources for vinyl wrap <$100 or so? how much do you think it would take to do a wrx/240sx


because yah that audi is exactly what i'm looking for as far as looks, and i havn't even seen the ferrari/lambos that have been professionally done look as good as that wrap. though i'm sure the wrap doesn't last that long. anyone know what product was used on the audi?
