Default Re: Son's '73 ghia - a distraction

LOL! I am the same way. I start off with a basic paint formula and then the mad science begins,add some of this, toss in some toner,a spoonful of bling,stir well,spray a test card and maybe adjust to flavor. I learned a lesson the hardway ,when I built my 1939 Chevy I didnt weigh it out as I mixed it and then ran out of basecoat. It took a good friend of mine 8days to get a formula close enough to blend. The Prophet didnt even read it right and kept coming up with a color in the next galaxy. I now weigh it as I mix and I write it down as I go.lol
