Question Painting Question....

Is there such a thing as black, tinted, smoked, or whatever clear coat? I'm asking because I want to paint the "wood grain" in the truck, but I don't want to do it just black, I think black wood would be awesome....

I'm sure there is all you have to do is ad some black to the clear coat, I've done similar by adding metal flakes to one layer of clear and then plain clear on top of that

you got to mix the black with the clear then spray with a gun. Test on some sort of wood grain test strip maybe something from a scrap yard and just keep reducing or adding black till you get the desired effect keep in mind it will be a very small ratio of black to clear but make sure you test because if its to dark thats gonna be hard if not impossible to fix

Dang I was trying to avoid that... buying a gun and mixing.....so it might be safer to take it to a body place and see if they can do it?

Julian that'll look AWESOME! Smoked woodgrain kit... YOOOO!!! I just figured it out! Get some VHT tail light spray paint, it is EXACTLY what you're looking for. It gets darker with each layer you spray. It isn't black right on the first swipe though, so I think you should be good with that!

My address is... haha

That's awesome! Just get the parts off and read the directions on the can. That's all I ever did when I painted my stuff in my truck, like my own dash actually ha. I did solid black with 7 coats of gloss. you'll need clear gloss too! The VHT comes out in a matte finish.

Can't wait to see the results man!
