Hey, it’s Tony. Thanks for watching the video and checking out the blog today. This is the long version of a previous blog. This is all about the House of Kolor Pearl, Kandy, Clear Coat Demo.
In the video, my friend Jon Kosmoski of House of Kolor shows the fender and reiterates on the width. He’s going to work on the top, then pass on to a midsection as shown in the video. Then, go back and do it all the way. Watch the video as he demonstrates this.
He then gives it one more coat so he won’t lose his artwork.
Jon then tells everyone that at seminars he doesn’t wait as long as he would normally wait in the shop because he doesn’t have a lot of time to watch the paint dry.
Watch the video and see what happens after he gives it one more coat. This is really cool!
He then starts mixing paint. He’s holding a pearl concentrate in Trans Nebulae reduced fifty percent. He put in 4 ounces of Trans Nebulae, 2 ounces of reducer.
A cloudy draw at the bottom of the stir stick means it has too much pearl so you can’t control it. Again, watch the video as Jon demonstrates how to paint with it.
He then finishes everything with Kandy before he puts his clear. Jon tells everyone about the striping paint he invented which was out in the market in 1986.
You can clear over it, smooth it out and you can’t feel the bump from the stripe. You can’t feel the flames, they’re buried in the job. It only takes two coats of clear to do that.
He then mixes the clear and gets ready to do both fenders.
Jon reminds everyone that 400 grit is the finest sanding before the top coat. Using 1000 grit, 1200 grit or 1500 grit is not advisable. Nothing for the job to hang on to. Once you go to the car wash, you blow your paint job off.
Go ahead and continue watching his demo. 🙂 At the end, you’ll see how he adjusts the pattern by the knob of the spray gun, not the fan control.
