Default Body kit painting

Hi everyone looks like I have purchased a Mopar bodykit for my GT. It is new and molded in black...I obviously wil have to paint it in Inferno red. I know I could take it to a body shop or i am wondering if I could buy some factory paint bombs colour matched from my local body shop and if I could do it myself in my garage?I have had good luck with such paint bombs for my Toyota winter car. Do i have to prime it first?or do I just spray on the red? It has clear mixed in?

Phil,

Isn't Inferno Red the color that they charged an extra $300 when buying it new? I believe it was because that color took extra work/preparation to put on. Candyman should jump into this conversation but if you really want it to match up with the rest of the car, save up some cash and have it done professionally. Sanding, primer, spraying correctly and clear coat (even if there clear mixed in) should all be done with an experienced hand. Small jobs, you might get away with but your talking long large pieces with the kit. Just my $.02 (American).

Inferno Red is a three stage color. The only way to get it to match is by having it professionally sprayed. Even then, without blending it won't be a perfect matchto the factory paint.

He's like a cop never around when you need him, but he shows up eventually.

When he does, he'll have great and sound advice for you. After seeing his advice when it comes to even small paint projects like touch up, I can almost promise you he'll tell you to get professional help.

Don't forget about the part they we are around when you don't want us to be, like when your running that red light or showing us that California stop.

If we translate that Candyman, that would be catching us with a can of Duplicolor in hand

Candyman, you know I'm just teasing you and have nothing but respect for you! It's the meds talking. Yeah, that's it. The meds......

Yea, it must be the meds because Candyman hasn't replied to this thread yet. Better cut that dosage down a little.

I was talking about my meds. I'm still not recovered from our accident two months ago. Vicodin and muscle relaxers have become part of a well balanced diet for me.

I forgot Candyman is dealing with the same stuff on a much bigger scale.

I realize that, but you were apologizing to Candyman in your reply and he hasn't even said anything yet on this thread. I'm the one who gave you the quote about law enforcement being around when you don't want them to be, and I did that because you compared him to a cop that's never around when you need him.
