    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 1.9 cdti 150

    Year : 2004

    Default Respray

    Due to the amount of stone chips and scratches i have, i have been thinking about a respray and to save cost i was going to do the work myself in parts as i can get access to suitable facilities. Before anyone says it, i know how to spray as i have done many parts on my car previously.

    I was thinking once i have finished the exterior styling, to spray it matt black. What i want to know is if i will need a clear coat and where i can get a matt clear coat.

    Any ideas?

    EDIT: Also, how much will i need?

    my pal sprayed is euro looking golf matt black, and he didnt use any clear coat. although in the rain the car almost seems to absorb the water, like a chalk board, and you could put hand prints on it, so maybe u do need a matte clear coat.... im my opinion though m8 only think matte suits lambo's or new skylines etc... id stick with metallic also when you come to sell it, it will appeal to more people been mettalic. But if you plan keepin it, and you really fancy it, go 4 it!
