    Default Kirker Paint

    Excuse my ignorance but is this paint any good, the reason i ask is because im looking to learn to candy cars and I found a kit for a very good price for what it includes:

    1 Gal. of Primer / Sealer (your choice of buff or grey)
    1 Qt. of Activator for the primer
    4 Qts of Quick Silver Base
    4 Qts of Urethane Candy (your choice of color, you can even mix and match)
    1 Gal. of EC100 PRO-FLO Clear
    3 Qts. of Activator for use in the Base , Candy, & Clear
    2 Qts. of Reducer for use in the Primer, Base, Color or Clear
    15 each Paint sticks & Paint strainers
    1 each Spray suit and Spray sock
    3 1 Qt. Mixing cups
    6 Tack Rags
    3 Rolls masking tape

    Ive read good things about it on other forums and the vehicles on their site but have came to trust my opinions more on this forum.

    EDIT: This site also has the same kit as above but no candy and high build primer for under 300. Please say its a descent paint.

    Im gonna give the 269 Kit a try on my 4x4 just to give it a good test this spring... I dunno when i will paint it but i will give a good follow up and some pics on the kit when im done... The only thing i dont like about it is the base is a SS paint but ive seen people clear over SS before, still not a bad deal IMO


    Thanks,
    Ryan

    man those candies looked great on that site, the one thing that got me though was that orange/red integra, they painted the jambs at the same time as the outside, every time I attempted that with candie it would hav a build up at the edges that looked like crap. I would have liked to see more up close pics of the process.

    a S/Stage urethane. it's more work, but the depth of color can be OUTSTANDING!
