I owned a shop in central florida and have many full vehicle wraps under my belt but fell out of the game maybe 3 years ago.. It goes without saying ALOT has changed since then, so i'm needing a little guidance on a project i kinda fell into.. a relative got a dodge magnum, him and i have got all the body work done on it and he decided he wants to dip it a dark charcoal pearl... now some questions i have.....
1. i've got like 10-15 gallons of covert black HaloEFX i was planning on using as my base.. however, i plan on using the new(ish) DYCtopcoat as the pearl medium.. idk what testing has been done but is the topcoat compatible with haloEFX as a base?
2. are the days of using clear/glossifier mix as a pearl medium gone? id like to go that route then one gallon of DYC topcoat to seal it up to keep this project as cheap as possible but i cant seem to find the clear PDS anymore on DYC?
3. Can you yield a nice glossy finish spraying DYC topcoat outside? i will be under a garage port but as i no longer have my shop with my high end spraying system, ill be spraying with the old DYC dip sprayer and i don't have the luxury of closing up a bay door and keeping the humidity and the elements out.. im worried i will end up with a hazy semigloss finish?
Thanks in advance,
