Publisher: Wolfgang Publications$51.95
The next section covers modern paint. What it is, how it's made, and which type is best suited to custom paintwork. Jon explains the advantages and disadvantages of single and two-stage paints, and which is the best choice for a person working at home or in a small shop. The paint discussion moves on to cover candy and pearl paints, how best to utilize and spray these custom coatings, and how to mix up your own unique color.
How to pick, adjust, and use spray guns makes up the next chapter. As Jon explains, "you need to have the gun adjusted properly, and the way to do that is with test panels done before you start the paint job." The test panels included in the book show a good and bad pattern, and how to adjust a gun that's putting out a flawed pattern.
No how-to-paint book would be complete without at least two, start-to-finish paint jobs. "Kosmoski's New Kustom Painting Secrets" contains both a hot rod and a motorcycle paint job. The sequences start at the very beginning with the metal preparation, and move through all the primer and filler stages necessary to make the panels perfect, before any topcoat can be applied. The paint jobs include art work and flames, application of the candy paint, and the final clearcoats. "Kosmoski's New Kustom Painting Secrets" uses more than 400 color images and 144 pages to explain a lifetime's worth of custom painting experience.
