So as most of you probably know I've been planning to paint my 97 Suburban Green and White. I finally got my $1800 so now I've got the funds to do it. I've painted a lot of smaller stuff using various methods, just never a car, or with a full size spray gun.
I've already found 3/4 gallon of Wimbledon White for the side. (That should be enough, right?)
Now for the green I'm having a little bit of trouble. I really like Porsche's Irish Green, though I wouldn't mind something a tad darker and with a bit of metallic. First of all, I've been unable to find anywhere that sells 2-stage Irish Green paint online.
Second, I was considering getting 2 quarts or so of GM's Dark Green Metallic (popular on NBS Z71 Tahoes) to mix in with the Irish green to get the color to exactly what I want. Has anyone had any experience mixing metallic and non-metallic paint? I've done it when restoring 1/64 scale cars and it turned out nice, but does that translate well to a large scale? Also having trouble finding anywhere that sells GM Dark Green Metallic.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
This is how I'll be painting it, but in green with white down the side. How much paint should I need total? This post has been edited by leik oh em jeez! on Sunday, Feb 5 2012, 06:27
