I’ll be giving away more so everyone stay tuned! Let’s go ahead first with your auto body questions. 

Question: I’m painting my bike again. Is there any difference between 2K candy paint and base coat mid coat candy?

I think you’re talking about concentrate candy, are you? If so, the process is pretty much the same. 

You have to lay a urethane candy and then your clear coat on top. If you’re doing concentrate candy, it’s going to be midcoat anyway, so you’ll have a silver base coat and then put your concentrate and lastly your clear coat. As I said, it’s pretty much the same thing. 

Question: Have you painted a car using a turbine?

Not yet, but it’s something I want to do in the future and most probably when I get my new property here in Hawaii. 

Question: What paint do you recommend for my 36 Chevy Panel Truck? A solid color or metallic 2-stage? 

I would definitely recommend a 2-stage base coat clear coat because you can do a lot with it. You don’t have a lot of room for customization for single-stage. 

On the other hand, if you use base coat clear coat, you can add pearl, flake or candy. Whatever you want to do. 

As far as metallic or solid – just go with what you feel. Go with your gut feel or whatever you think is cool. 😉

Question: What do you recommend as far as paint? The original color is white. I want to go with the dark blue color. 

A while back, I fell in love with a color called Spectra Blue. Check that out. It’s a dark blue color which is so gorgeous. I don’t know the color code at the top of my head but you definitely need to check that one out. 

I painted my ‘67 Camaro with that color as well as a Mercedes that I had a while back. It’s a rich dark blue color which looks amazing.

The #BossPainter is back! It’s Tony from LearnAutoBodyAndPaint. Check out the most adorable pup here. LOL. Meet Lanie, the newest member of the family! 

We rescued her at the pound about 10 days ago. It’s a Chihuahua and she’s 6 months old. I never liked small dogs until I saw her. She’s super nice. 

I’m just hooking up with my old friends with body shops here in Hawaii and getting back in the game. 

I don’t have a shop here yet but I’m going to be doing some body work in my friend’s shop soon. My friend will be getting a blow-up spray booth and I’ll be recording a lot of stuff and sharing it with you guys. It will be amazing!

I’m sorry about some of the questions that I haven’t answered because it’s difficult to just read the questions without giving me pictures of your project. 

Again, for those of you who wants to send in your questions, please do so to [email protected] together with pictures so I can better assess your project and give you a more accurate recommendation.
