I have painted many of cars now. But I haven't got to enjoy a project to customize yet, so the time has finally come on my 63 Nova Wagon. I have a couple questions. My plan is... Bodywork. (Almost done) White primer, (Maybe silver sealer from HOK idk) And then bury this in flake. a 50/50 flake mix. Not too sure which two sizes of flake yet, or what the best flake to use is yet. I'm assuming I'd put plain base over the flake when I'm done the flake coats. Can I tape over flake if I dont? Or would it be better to use a clear base coat overtop for tapeing?!? Idk. Once I have the flake down. I can start laying down my tape and paint. My paint question is does it have to be candy paint. Because I found the color I want, and it's a HOK solid graphic paint. Not a candy. I was thinking of mixing a little konsetrate in with my solid graphic color as well. Trying to make the color I want exactly. And I think a blend of the two will be perfect. But .. I dont know if the solid base will bury the flake. Or if I have to use Kandy ♂️. Also not sure what flake to use. Or if I even have to bother with white base coat if I bury it in flake. Because I already have black basecoat. Do I even need to buy white or silver? im worried because I want to put a super light color overtop of the flake. Im just after that really nice flake with all the tapeing and art im going to be putting all over this thing and have never done the flake before. Any advice would be appreciated. I think I'm on the right track.
