Re: Cool site for paint if you want to color match parts

Scott - what clear do you recommend? And did you a can to paint your stuff or a spray gun? I want to do it all myself with a spray can, but can ask my father in-law to help out with a spray gun if I need to.

I have used the clear from the site above and it is good. I used a can...but if you can use a spray gun...that is better.

thanks alot for the tips Scott! did a half ass job on my first shot(basically just scratch up the surface and shot some paint lol) on the airdam so i gave it another shot today. Followed what you wrote and it worked like a charm! took my time and worked up to 1000 grit with primer between sets. tried to make it as smooth as possible and then apply several coats of basecoat followed by a few layers of clear.



I only did the part which can be seen when the airdam is on, so i didnt bother with the lower section.


idk if you can tell from the last pic but you can see the sparkles in the PXR paint. Also bought a can of the snakeskin green so ill be doing some parts under the hood for that.

Re: Cool site for paint if you want to color match parts

as long as you degreased it and prepped it properly.....it should be ok. The clear coat is important too

Re: Cool site for paint if you want to color match parts

Just ordered my 2nd batch It matched my STONE WHITE wonderfully ......however, when its at the end of the can it gushes out instead of sputtering out so I got a couple small runs

Re: Cool site for paint if you want to color match parts

I just ordered some Stone White as well, going to paint all the lower black trim on the Jeep. I think I'll need a lot more than 3 cans but I wanted to start small to see how hard it was going to be and how it would turn out. I'll post pics when done.

Re: Cool site for paint if you want to color match parts

I ordered the Stone White paint from here and did my bumper pad last night, however it looks slighter brighter than the rest of my Jeep. Anyone with Stone White notice this?

I sanded it down, cleaned it with soap then prep solvent, 2 coats of adhesive promoter, 3 coats of grey primer, sanded with 1500 grit, 2 coats of adhesive promoter, 3 coats of white paint, 2 coats of clear (Dupli-color).

Question - how should I finish it off? Should I wet sand and buff like my tail lights? And will this have any affect on the color or finish? (ie. brighten it or tone it down).

I plan on doing the front lip, side skirts, and front license plate holder so I'll post pictures when I'm all done with it (hopefully Sunday night).
