Re: ford paint

black paint is black paint.go to any auto store, and find some gloss black. if that doesnt work, go to your body shop, and tell them to mix you some and put it in a rattle can for you.

i know alot of people say that the rattle can just isnt as good, but i use it on alot of vehicles. its all about prep-work. if your bumpers are chrome, pick up some bulldog adhesion promotor too.

Re: ford paint

if you want paint to run in a spray gun you might want to check at a parts store that mixes paint on site and see if they have any laying around that no one picked up. At the store I use to work at we had a whole table set up of no show or wrong color paint.

Re: ford paint

some blacks are tinted. are you painting over chrome or only plastic. if your only painting plastic, use some bulldog, no not the tuner. adhiesion permoter? spelling wrong!!

most paint stores can provide you with oem colors in a rattle can, the problem comes in the clearcoat! they cannot put hardener in the can bacause it will------ harden in the can! so you really need to mix it yourself, and spray thru spraygun. if you need more help, just ask, and i will provide you with as much as you need!

Re: ford paint

i don't think so but, that's just my opinon, however i have been an automotive painter for 25 years. its a good idea to use the primer but, i would still deffinetly use bulldog first! then the primer. bulldog does come in a rattle can also.
but paint only sticks to plastic so well! there is a plastic conditioner to use for cleaning before you spray anything but, i usualy just use alcohol, rubbing not drinking! rubbing is cheaper, doesn't taste good though! so excpect some to chip off over it's life time! but if your set on doing it, go for it. just do all the steps that you can to ensure that it lastest. fixing it later is a bitch if it flakes off! so ask some more if you need to! and clearcoat in a can, i would not do it! but to each his own.

Re: ford paint

well the only good thing is that with matte black mirrors and then I am putting on a shiny black finish, it wont show near as much when it flakes....especially compared to white!!
