Hi Has anyone sprayed this color yet,Iam using Sikkens autowave .There arent any chips availible and the spray card matched the bumpers but not the car body and the bumpers are far from a match to the body.The body looks like a HOK dye very electric and transparent.Any info would be great.
Thanks :worthy:

Was your spray out card a white back ground? if soo try spraying the soul red over a black base. also not doing a drop coat can effect the paint look and make it look less course.. if all else fails you could always try adding some extra tinters if you feel confident enough doing so. hope this helps. :)

Thanks for the reply
my spray card was pink as per the notes on the formula ,I think it was cbp039 sealer.
so have you sprayed this color? and are you a sikkens user?

I have yet to spray this colour and I am a sikkens user, have you got the new 2.0 update with the new 800 metallics instead of the 888's?

NO not yet,the rep is coming up on monday to give it a try
we shall see how far he blends .I'm thinking bumper to bumper.
The problem is ,with one mid coat it turns brown on the flip and too dark an the face,so I over reduced for the effect and got it closer ,but then lost spray ability on the blend.Just have to find the happy place.
