50/50 black-clearcoat

Can anyone give me a picture of what this would look like over a cardinal red color? I'm having a hard time imagining it. I do like the 50/50 black-clearcoat over chrome, but what does it do for colors?

If you want to see it spray it out! A photo on the computer screen isn't going to mean much anyway.

But really, if you want to learn something, spray it out. It's so much fun, I love spraying things out to see something new, or abuse it to see how far you can go, that sort of thing. There is just nothing that teaches us more about something than to do it and abuse it and do it right and see what the difference is and learn how not to make mistakes when it comes to painting your project.

Thanks for the reply, Brian. The situation that I'm curious about is that I'm about to purchase a truck that the clearcoat is peeling off. It's cardinal red and since I'm not a huge fan of bright red or orange, instead of a full color re spray $$$... wanted an idea of what the 50/50 would look like over the red factory paint. If it's just an internet photo, that'd be good enough to make me lean one way or the other. I do plan on having all my chrome pieces on the 68 done like the dark chrome finish.

Clear coat of any kind, regardless of brand or quality, is not glue. If the truck's clearcoat is peeling, adding more clear on top will only result in thicker layers of clear peeling.

It's very difficult to strip the clear down to the base coat and re clear the entire truck, but if you're going to try that, you might just as well sand it down properly and repaint it the color you want.
