I would think that a lot of those are clearcoat. Or do I really just have single stage paint? (YZ Oxford White).

Since Pearl is a Tri-Coat I just called to get a price on what a pint will coast me...A pint is all I need.

Rember to make a pearl pain you need to paints to make one color...
$54.95 per pint...$109.90 w/o discount in all...

$43.95 per pint...$87.90 w/ my family discount in all...

$87.90 is not a bad deal to clean my truck up a bit

Now I just need to know how to do Tri-Coat.

US You shouldn't?

Soapbox time - No big deal, let it ride. Some of us speak more than one language, and no harm, no foul... But if you don't speak Spanish or Spanglish, just pick up a little or don't. America is beautiful, and we all help to keep it that way

No one is saying anything out of line, so MAF and SAS, IAC, CAI, when I don't understand I just read until I do - my choice. But that's why I'm here, to learn. So, mi pana, it's just another language..

And where were you when we were speaking French and Romanian?

Depending on what/where you're painting, you may (probably) have to blend it. And you must take off all the parts attached to the panel you're painting. If you're not proficient at this, you have a good chance of ruining your finish !

I guess that just goes to show me me how old my truck is.

My paint code and name are 'ER' - 'Dark Cranberry Metallic'

The sun has turned it into just plain PURPLE.... That's right! Because of the sun, i now drive the Barneymobile....
