- Equipment: Use a quality HVLP gun with a 1.3 -1.4 tip for best results.
- Shooting Metallics: When possible shoot all panels together and in the orientation they will be on the car. Mix your paint well and practice spraying technique to eliminate "tiger stripping".
- Do you have to shoot clear?: No, if you are going after a Matte finish you can stop at the basecoat, but for maximum durability, we recommend topcoating with our Matte Clear.
Why Basecoat/Clearcoat? Eastwood’s Basecoats are great for beginner painters or for users looking to achieve a deep, wet look. With a basecoat clear coat system, you focus on getting the color coverage with the basecoat and then focus on achieving a glossy finish by applying a clear coat. This makes it a bit easier to spray. Eastwood’s basecoats are an activated basecoat, which means that they create a strong bond with the foundation coats. If you are looking for a metallic or pearl color, consider getting it in a basecoat as it will be easier to spray and achieve proper orientation.
