Specialist Paints has teamed up with MTVs PIMP MY RIDE UK for series 3. PIMP MY RIDE UK used our Candy Red on the Daimler XJ6. Our Silver and Black Base were used, fading Silver at the front to Black at the back. Candy Red was then applied over the top.

Candy coatings are easy to apply and can even be applied by a airbrush. For best results use a Silver base coat but using different colours will give you a different effect. Candy colors can also mixed with our other products Pearl, spectracoat, Sparkle, flip paint etc.

  • Start by prepping your project as you would any other paint job. (Sand, Prime, etc.)
  • Apply 2-3 coats of Base coat leaving 10-15 minutes between coats.
  • Mix Candy 2-1 with Reducer and stir well.
  • Apply Candy 3-6 coats depending on the effect you desire, leaving 15 minutes between coats. The more coats the more deep and richer the colour will become.(Always spray test penals before spraying you product or project)
  • Apply 2k Show Clear for a Real Deep Gloss FInish.
