Totall :(y depends on wha the customer wants.
Our lacqar guy is retty good but he is limited to basic colors with a choice of shjeen but, no metallics etc.
We also use a guy who sprays exclusively House of Kolor products but they add up fast and most are translucent so multiple layers are needed to get the desired deffect.
You probably saw these but here's a pic of the Super 7's we recenly built, they are done in House of Kolor tangerine Kandy... so multiple layers of primer/sealer and block sanding , a base coat, 5 coats of tangerine Kandy, then 2 coats of the HOK Show Clear. Material cost alone is up there but man, the paint is pretty killer..
Wish pics would show the depth.
Lacqar guy did the satin black bases.
