Eastwood Midnight Metallic Black Basecoat Gallon 52420 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Silver metallic based black As in all of the Eastwood products purchased over the years this is a good quality material that is user friendly and performs as advertised. But, because of personal preference, I would not buy it again. Why? It has a silver metallic that overshadows the blue pearl. As a result, in the correct indoor light or in some angles of direct sunlight it takes on a charcoal loolk. It does not have the deep black look that a material with less silver and more blue metallic produces. Just me; and not a fault of Eastwood.

Is this a Ready to Spray base coat?

Asked by: Jr Ramos
The kit will come with the proper amount of activator. Mix at 4:1 and it's ready to spray.

Can this paint be sprayed directly over your epoxy DTM primer or even if it can, is that not a good idea?

Asked by: JohnnyMac
This basecoat can be applied directly over our epoxy primer, but most people put a urethane primer or high build sprayable polyester (like our Contour Polyester Primer) over the epoxy to provide build. This allows them to block sand the surface flat before applying the paint.
