    I'm in Bullhead City, AZ. If your not too far I can do a trick candy paint job or the new Shimrin flake graphics I do for money or trade for legal fire arms hunting type guns, I'VE got no use for uzi's. only shot guns deer rifles, etc. Or If you just want a stock paint job no matter. We're all suffering from this crummy economy.
    So I can keep in business I keep my prices low. I have a graphics artist that comes over and lays out what you want to have done scallops, flames, etc
    call or email the ol' guy Bill 928-219-4404 1williamleland@gmail.com.
    I don't use that cheap production paint because 1 year later the clear coat is peeling off you need to buy the quality stuff to get 5 plus years clear life,

    Welcome.

    What PPG single stage paint do you recomend for a novice painter? I have a desert truck so paint doen't need to be fancy and I'm VERY new to this painting and HVLP guns. I have a set at home but haven't messed with them yet. Looking to paint the truck a matte tan or just a standard glossy black

    Regarding the type paint you use. It is complicated. But let me try to explain. I'll help anyone that wants to give it a go on their own not impossible just a lot of work.
    If you're spraying metallic with a single stage paint you really need to know what your doing. It is to easy to muck up the metallic distribution. If you aim for no orange peel & your new to spraying you'll discover mottled metallic. ugly. the dust clumps together looks very bad no fix for this. I may run out of room. It this is your first vehicle spray job call me I'll tell you what to do & how to do it. I'd do base coat & clear coat it is the easiest way to a uniform metallic distribution. cost a few dollars more but if you do as I suggest You'll blow your friends minds. I worked in my dad's auto restoration shop as a youth, he was a task master times ten. I suspect I could write a thin paper back on all the information that you'd be appreciative of for spraying your own car. but who'd want to buy it? call me early AZ time 6:00 AM I start my day early and go to bed early 928-219-4404 you can tape our conversation if you wish I have a life time of actually doing it to share. Best, Bill

    The least expensive paint is white or black hands down. Another way to cut costs is go into your local auto paint supply and look at all the cans of wrong colors for sale cheap. they are possibly mistakes in mixing they just want it to go away CHEAP!
    I sprayed a Camry 4 door last week with a heavy metallic sierra beige really pretty color, I bought 2 qts, color single stage, hardener, & reducer medium quality $170 I think if I'd of started earlier in the morning and used slow reducer I could have covered car with 1 quart no metallic is a good way to begin your new hobby of painting vehicles. call me if you want detailed info.
