Color match

    I sprayed some PPG Deltron paint and found that it was a shade to light. This was a factory color. How can I darken the color? It's close, but I can see it would be a perfect match if it was a little darker. This was a kinda of silver metallic. Any help would be appreciated .

    To darken you have a couple of options:
    Lower gun air pressure is one.
    Other is cut back on the reducer.
    Of course that color a blend must be set up as you will never get the exact flop right with a panel paint job if you do that would have been a great day to buy a lottery ticket.

    Thanks Barry. I'll try reducing the air pressure.

    Not all scratches from wet sanding not buffed out???? Best guess I have from the picture hit it with your first cut compound and see.

    I did buff it out. I will do it again and see what happens. Using 3m compound.

    No luck with the second buff. I guess I'll have to sand it down and respray. I have a burn thru anyways. Just take it down with 600 grit(wet) then respray??? Help me out here please.
