Color Match Problems? I’m not surprised, Colour Matching can be one of the hardest parts of Automotive Refinishing, add an extra layer with a 3 Layer Pearl and understandably some people can get a bit lost but there is no need to get lost.
I find that most of the time there is no need to alter the pearl coat, just the ground color, obviously using minor adjustments and use the color wheel for guidance when necessary.
Most of the time I have also found that 1 coat of the pearl is enough using Standox Solvent base range but this will vary from car to car so always must be checked prior to painting.
Follow the basic methods I outline in the video below and success should come.
It takes years of practice to be what I would class as a good painter who can colour match with good results consistently.
