02Zetechse Just some additional Info to this old thread... Be sure to allow ample Dry time to the layers of Spray paint. being as this style of paint has to "gas" to dry so it will cause issues if each coat doesn't dry before another is added

02Zetechse Yeah , that is my worry with the Killer Cans is that when using multiple cans if i do not shake them exactly the same. I will have issues with different tones and blending. Also How much more Hazardous are Urethane Paints compared to the typical Aerosol Paint?

norcalfocus01 Thats a pretty advance system for the average person. I looked up the TDS sheets and its a arcylic urethane, pretty high end quality system. Im sure it would work very well, but when using two part paints, alot more things can go wrong.

02Zetechse Here they have alot of colors and finishes/ gloss levels ---MONTANA PAINT ---Killer Cans Steep Price but may be worth it a true 2K paint in a can

No problem. Please go ahead and do so.

Kinda of a side bar, but I seen paint specs for bridges that say red for the 1st coat, yellow for 2nd coat, and blue for the 3rd. Just so the job inspector knows that enough paint had been put on the bridge.

The reason you want to use a differant color primer, is so when paint the finish coat on, if you cant see the primer, you know youve put enough paint on.

Hi end auto painters used to use red oxide primer, under yellow, blue, black. Just so they knew they had put an even full coat on the car.
