    Reminds me of this, just not as pretty http://www.supramania.com/forums/sho...light=widebody

    Candy paint jobs aren't cheap and they don't touch up well. Fair warning.

    If you're looking for a budget paint job do not go with candy. It takes someone who really knows the process, and how to properly lay out a candy paint job. Which means you're going to pay dearly for it. Otherwise it can and most likely will come out blotchy, uneven, and just plain wrong looking if you try to cheap out on a candy paint job. I've seen it alot.

    Candy and stock paint are two totally different animals. I did all the body work on Tekdeus' widebody car. Candy paint is very expensive and almost twice the work. I would guess a full candy paint job would run in the $5000-10 000 range minimum. Being in the industry I also know that is is really really difficult to repair if a panel needs repainting, normally at the least you will have to re-paint the whole side to blend the color in.

    Candy is basically a base coat color, (silver or similar), than the mid coat which is multiple coats of tinted clear coat then the top coat of clear. Now every coat of the mid coat makes the paint darker, as it is transperant, so a candy red with say 4 coats of the mid coat will be lighter than with 6 coats. So to repair say a door, you will be blending the new paint ontop of the old paint which will make the door darker than the rest of the car, as you will end up with 8-12 coats on the repaired area, so the painter will end up blending the paint on either side so you wont see where the new painted area is. As you see there is no easy way to do this. My advice to you, if you will be driving this car all lot dont do a candy paint. There is some red colors out there that have a very similar look to candy and are a tri-coat paint, I belive Ford has it on a late 90's Mustang and the newer Dodge trucks, will look allot like candy but are traditional paints.

    I was also going to mention Hot Hues by Dupont. Not quite candy, but they're are some good looking colors they have to offer. Go to a automotive paint store and ask to look at some color chips.

    What is the difference between tri-coat paints and candy? To my knowledge I thought the process was very similar.

    Also go check the Barrett Jackson Colors by Planet color. They have some awesome colors and rather inexpensive. I got a price for a toyota color and was about 800 for paint, they yellow jacket i got from Planet color was half that. Sadly it only comes in quart cans and about 1/3 full the rest u fill with something else.

    one of my frinds dads is a painter and he has painted candy before i talked to him today and he said that he would help me paint the car he has sprayed candy but he said its a hard type of paint to get just right depends on many variables to get exactlywhat shade you want and like one of you said if one part gets scratched or nicked have to repaint the entire part i may just stick with 3h1 since i do drive it alot would also hate to get alot of roack chips in the paint to. just trying to find something thats going to make the car look real good i think 3h1 will be bright enough for me
