  • Sealer Color Under a Matador Red for my 69 Firebird???

    What primer/Sealer color do we use under a 1969 Matador Red?

    I figure white will lighten it up but what do you guys use? I like the nice deep red and not the pinkish hue to it and not on the maroon side either. Pics below. White convertible is my color of choice. The others are too pink or maroon.

    Ideas before I spray a test panel? I will spray one but it would be nice to narrow things down.

    Pic of the car would be great.

    Thanks,

    SAM

    It doesn't matter. Your sealer has no effect on the color of your basecoat.

      Why not? I was told by my PPG Jobber that the Reds don't cover well. Similar to yellows. I put white sealer below yellow vs a black sealer there is a distinct difference.

        yup i agree with mike, unless your using some cheap ass paint its not going to matter, my car is turquoise an white and half the car was sealed red and the other half white yet there is no colour change in the either of the final colours. My car was painted with PPG single stage high solid

          Your PPG jobber is an idiot. Unless it's a candy, it doesn't matter. By the time you get to the 3rd coat, your paint will be the color it should be. The reason for using a lighter sealer is to see how well you're painting and covering the entire part, not to change color of the paint. It's tough to see if you got it all if you're painting red on red.

            I am going to use the Deltron DBC base and may go with the Vibrance VC5200 Clear from PPG. I need to research the clear but have heard good things about it.

              Go with your basic off yellow or light grey sealer. I'm not a fan of PPG, so I don't know their stock colors. But the basic factory stocked sealer will be fine.

                ppg makes a red sealer. if you are concerned about the end result, try it.

                  I like the 1k dupont dark sealer for reds and dark blues.

                    If you're concerned about the end result, stay away from PPG.

                        PPG is all I use and have no problems with it. 3 good coats will cover any sealer. Its all in what youre used to using. Ive tried nason and in my experience with it I have always had adhesion problems. Now having said that I also apply and remove a lot of masking for the art I put on shit. So nasons ubc may be great for just a plain base coating and clear. The polyeaster primer after blocking is a very light grey. I use it for everything from a base coat clear to tri coat and 4coat colors. Meaning candies and prismatic paints and dyes.
