Before purchasing any PPG products, contact YB member NuKidOnDaBlock. He can usually hook you up with PPG stuff at very good prices,..better than you can get on your own.

As far a white 3 stage,...it's not all that hard IMHO. It's way easier than doing 3 stage candy colors, where you put a metallic base down first them apply the really transparent candy color, (tinted clear), on next,..then you clear it. It takes talent and practice to do a candy job without blotchiness and striping.

3 stage pearl white, however,....is done by spraying a solid white base first, (easy step),...and then a transparent pearl white mid coat on next which doesn't tend to blotch much at all. It just gives the solid white base some dazzle. It covers well, and adds the flake to the already white base, then you clear it.

Very inspiring reply Frank!! I think I’m going to give it a whirl. It’s not like I’m going to sema.

Do a drop coat then and be careful not to get build up around the edges. Tension build up will contain more pearl and make the outline more "pearly".

Agreed X2 Pearl white is more forgiving than candy and pay attention to your speed,overlap, and air pressure once you get gun dialed in. Also if you are consistent with mid coat coverage you could paint car disassembled, I've done white diamond pearl this way and no issues. Just something to think about as a new painter.

Lemans Blue would be easier but, those early colors have very fine metallic fakes in their formulas that are now using tiny plastic pearl tints along with tiny metallic flakes in them, to mimic the old look. Those do tend to blotch or mottle a little more than colors with normal sized flakes.

My Camaro is Lemans Blue.

Nice car frank. So how do you prevent blotching or mottling?

When applying the base coat, do not put it on too wet. "Too wet" coats are usually caused by moving too slow or spraying too close.That will cause the blotching and mottling. If your pressure is too high, the paint will be concentrated on the top and bottom of your fan pattern, end that will cause tiger striping. Nice semi wet coats, with at least 50% overlap with each pass of the gun and a little cross hatching diagonally, (fogging), after you finish a coat on each panel, will help even off the flake.
