Matching Plum Crazy Paint
At a recent event, one of the guys at the table, owns a paint supply company. We got talking about cars, and I asked him why the PC paint is so difficult to match. He pulled up some stuff on his phone and pointed to the additives that ran a couple hundred just for the additive. He explained how the paint shops get paid on insurance jobs, and even how they will quote a personal job without truly looking up the paint code. There was a lower cost additive that is similar, but still not right. Most insurance jobs don't even put in any additive, and then spray back to blend it in, but the car will never look right.
I made the mistake of asking about painting the decals on my car, and he asked are you ready to respray your entire car??? That led to discussion on orange peel. He suggested 7-8 to get a "good" job. Great job, 18-20. Show quality, 30-40!!!
I'll be happy with what I have!

American Muscle, like a pit bull. Big but not large, well defined, explosive power, in it till the end. The cat will give it go and zig and zag, but in the end the pit bull will always catch the cat – the outcome is never good for the cat.
