QUESTION: Using HOK voodoo violet over jet black base UK22 and s2-25 how many coats of clear and do I need this kD3000 sealer, its black too?
Get the shade that you like, once you do that, then you could put two coats to medium heavy coats of clear coat and you’re good.
If you really want that to pop, I would flow coat it a week or two later. But you if you let your clear coat set for a good 7 to 14 days, you give it time to cure, time for the solvents to kind of evaporate and get really hard then I would wash it down with 800 grit. Sand it flat and then you could put two more coats of heavy medium clear coat on it as a flow.
QUESTION: Tony, what 2k filler primer do you recommend? Also, should I use a black primer if painting the car black? It’s going to be painted single stage jet black.
Black base coat or single stage will cover super quickly. I usually get a medium gray primer for all of my bodywork. I don’t really worry about tinting so much. If I’m spraying lighter colors, I just go with a lighter gray because your paint is going to achieve the color that you want with paint.
Maybe if you’re using a really expensive read or something and you want to tint your primer red before spraying your base coat, you could do that. But in most cases 90% of the time, and overall basic colored primer is all you need.
You can go with a gray, a light gray, or a darker gray. And that’s pretty much all I use. So it’s up to you if you want to get into that thinking games really doesn’t make a huge difference
