well i thought i would make a flat black thread since i still and just got a question on my old flat black civic(it belongs to dave - sillyimportracer). well i will say this for everyone whose ask and haven't ask it was a stage 1 spray minus clear coat. the guy that did for me stated he would NEVER do a another flat black paint job again. dave can vouche for this it wasn't perfect. the reason was that he had to mix into the paint a hardener so the paint can be protected or act like a paint job with clear coat. the problem with this was that the minute it was sprayed, the paint would start to dry almost instantly. so he had to almost make every spray perfect, which wasn't and he swore a lot. lol.
well now after a year or so BASF came out with a flat paint(where the fuck were they when i need this. lol.)
BASF R-M Carizzma Flat Paint

That explains why it's so hard to sand. Base coat isn't intended to have hardener added. If you're going flat black...or any flat color...use the right materials.

I've got a couple more days of sanding & the main body & fenders will be ready to prime.

I just need to come up with a few good, used body parts for cheap & I can finish the cosmetic portion of the resurection.
