I am getting ready to paint a full size regular cab Chev truck. I have welded, sanded, filled and sanded and sanded and sanded..... (Iknow it is all in the prep). Many places of bare metal and two fender's that are new in e-coat (Tested with lac thinner)
My question is how much will I need? I will NOT be painting inside the 8'bed. (Just FYI - this is a plow truck that lives outdoors 24/7 and suffer's allot of abuse from salt)
Epoxy Primer MP 170 (1 quart on hand 2:1 ratio)
Sealer MP 180 (1 quart on hand 5:1 ratio)
Base Coat OMNI MBC (3 quarts on hand 1:1 ratio)
Clear coat PPG Production Clear (2 quarts on hand 4:1 ratio)
Reducer (1 gal slow and about 1 quart med)
It is supposed to be rain and 60 degrees (or less ) this weekend. I have the truck in an unheated garage.
Suggestions for a quantity of supplies? Speed of reducer? I am using PPG OMNI MBC base coat and products. https://buyat.ppg.com/refinishProduc...-eb8aefd601f1#
I have the DVD (Thanks Len) and have picked up a few tips. This is my first venture into BC/CC.
