    It can be blended in but its going to take a REAL GOOD painter. I've seen them do it to lowriders here in Cali

    A straight candy paint job? ouch, i can't do it, tried many times. I usually just get a touch up brush, do base, candy, and clear wet sand and polish and pray... or now is a good time to think about flames or something. I wish i had a better answer

    pm chopolds, here on the HAMB.......................he's the nu "Kandy-Man"

    It can be done with an air brush and a good eye for colour and considerably experience under one's belt!

    it can be spotted in, ive done quite a few. there are, as said, a couple secrets you need to follow, or you will have a big shadow in the side tone.

    naturally , the hood and deck lid are the hardest areas to repair. if its down low on the rocker area, easier fix

    i recall having to do the deck and rear body panel on a 36 cabro when the ulphosltery guys drilled a hole right through the deck lid on a gold based candy . reminided me of walking a tite rope in the wind

    Thanks for the Kudos!
    Yeah, it can be done, but it's even harder to do than originally paining the candy!
    PM me, give me details on the paint job, and I'll see if I can give you some direction.

    I've seen Jon Kosmoski do it, back in the late 70's with HOK Lacquers when he came to my school (ND State School [now College] of Science). He made it look easy, but even he said it was difficult. I've tried it, with varying degrees of success, and always with lacquers, never with urethanes.
