That would not be living on the edge then. I regularly run with scissors, you know! lol
 
 
Brandy Wine Candy is a true three stage urathane and the example above is over a base of Galaxy Gray. A buddy of mine with a 66 Mustang just had his car painted this color and I am in love. He put charcoal gray stripes on it, and the chrome trim pops...beautiful site!

I am loving this color. I have never shot a candy, so now I am thinking. Is it like some of the heavier metallics where you need to "fog" the last couple of coats to try to even things out? I also understand with candies that the more coats you apply, the deeper the color?
 
Please advise as I am seriously considering this color. Shocked

I like that JT, and it's very close to the Blood Red Candy Concentratefrom ALSA. I've got some of that to make my own custom color(base/tint/clear). I'll use my OEM 98 red base(minus the candy($250 per gallon of paint)), a tint coat made with the concentrate mixed with the base and a gold pearl, plus clear. The concentrate ALSA sells is about $60 per pint when on sale, about $45 per cup not on sale, and should make a gallon or more.

This paint has a silver, gold or grey base coat which is straight forward to apply. The candy part is the tricky step. It is this tinting part that has be applied exactly uniform or you will get striping/blotching in the color. The more coats you apply the darker it gets. If you have never shot candy coats dont make your car the first, it can be a very expensive paint lesson. Practice on some fenders or hoods.
There are some 2 stage colors that are close but lack the desired "POP" of a true candy. They are less expensive too.

I've shot candy paints before. Using a Silver base will give you a different outcome than Gold base, obviously. I have not used Grey. Spray your base color on evenly. On the candy, I usually spray some test panels first to make sure nothing is funky with the gun - just as a precaution. It also lets you confirm the spray pattern - VITAL when spraying candy. Everyone has their own technique, but uniformity and overlap control are key to getting solid, even coverage. Always remember that your clear will give you your gloss and depth. If you had to pick a stage to get a mistake in, make sure it is the clear, because wet-sanding it with a block will even out the surface and easily (considering) correct flaws.

My favorite candy colors are Tangerine and Blues/Greens. I also love Copper when it has a nice candy tint.

I'll let my preferred painter do my painting, who's in KY BTW.

JT, do you know of a great perfectionist someplace up along I-75 named John by chance? I only know him from a couple of friends here who have taken things there to him. I was hoping to get my Lincoln done this year, but now I think next Spring is the plan again.

Candy over a jet black base looks cool too....

I know a few guys named John. And a couple of them are somewhat persnickety, but I don't think any of them paint cars. lol

Oh, I thought you were referring to the fact that he lives not too far from Dallas. Confused
 
I figure at the beginning of the project before anything gets painted/ tucked/ glued/ bolted down would be the best time to decide on the end colors...Big smileBig smile
 
 
Again, I like too many things! Embarrassed

I'll get you his full name and location, phone number before long. You might be close enough that he may be a good option for you also. I think it's about two hours to get to him from Knoxville.

Used quite a bit of penetrating lube to get 43 year old bolts to move. Finally got the rear bumper off and all but two bed bolts. I will have to grind one bolt head off as it is turning. The last bolt bent my wrench. I had to get a pipe cheater bar to slip over the end of the wrench and the wrench bent rather than the bolt move! Crazy. Slow progress...
