Is there something wrong with stewy? Or has he just been away for a bit?

Been away is my assumption, IIRC last time he was on he said that he'd been working his butt off.

Hey what's going on here? Gangin up on me for slacking! Where to start. OK. I do have some experience with kirker products and doing "hot rod" black. As far as your "budget" paint lines go, kirker makes a nice product. Flat black is really tough though because if you have any kind of imperfections, (dirt,bugs, runs) you can't sand and buff them out cuz it will be shiny there. What you spray is what you get. Also if you're painting a chrome bumper you have to sandblast all the chrome off first then lay several coats of catalyzed primer(not laquer) that is direct to bare metal approved, then wet sand with 500 grit or so to get the paint to stick. And russo never texted me. Saw it in my e mail. so he is also a slacker.

Also self etching primer is for priming over bare metal. I don't know what you're painting over on the body of the truck, but if the existing paint isn't damaged just 500 wet sand the panel til it isn't shiny anymore then go straight to the paint. And where the hell is the little chat bar now where we used to make fun of each other? I need that.

I'm gonna dig up some pics of a flat black new dodge I did a few months back and post them. The right way to do it is use regular black base coat and matte finish clear,which I did, but it was super expensive.And you still can't sand anything out of it. I'll see what I can find out about the kirker.

Look at all the pre like 92 fords and most other vehicles. Ever notice how they are generally faded and chalky looking? That's how single stage paint fares when not taking care of for years. Take my truck for example..
