house of kolor paint
Wednesday, January 11, 2006 9:16 PM
is anyone her familiar with paints from house of kolor? i've seen some crazy custom jobs done with it, especially the kameleon paints.... anyone whos used it before, please give me input about how it looks in person (i've only seen it once or twice, except in pictures), and if the colors really are that intense. i was looking at brandywine for my stingray...

here are pictures of a comparable model painted in HOK brandywine..




tell me what you guys think... especially if anyone has seen this color paint in person.

hok is really nice but in order for it to come out the exact way hok has it, you have to use all their supplies (ie. clear coat, primer, etc...)

i personally do not like using there products, the clear coat is complete garbage
and everything they have is candy and ya have to use silver or white or black to achieve the look to must material to much time not worth it
so why not use ppg`s harliquen colors, or something else from ppg and it only uses base coat clear coat, and it will be more cost effective
and yes you can use pgg`s clear over hok products

I used HOK paint on my old cav and I will be using it again on this cav. In person, it was awesome. I got so many compliments on the paint alone, you wouldn't believe it. At car shows, people would come around and take pictures of the Kandy up close. And that Kandy Brandywine is beautiful. I've got a lot of pictures of my custom kandy green. Here are a few:

HOK IMO makes a great product but it is almost over priced compards to other products that give the same appeal. For that colour on the vette try DuPont Hot Hues if I was going to paint the car again it would be that paint that colour......heres my car its metal flake its great since it looks black till you see it in bright sun red flickers through the entire paint job




far away in the shade





my sub box is the hot hues paint its similar to that I dont know if the pic shown is candy the more coats of red over gold you put the deeper it goes

thanks for all the opinions. i would never dare paint a car myself, for now i will leave body work to the professionals. the HOK paints do seem a bit complicated though - the color of the basecoat can completely change the color of the paint... according to their charts, "Brandywine" can be anywhere from lighter than the color in my pics to almost black. bummrz, i love the paint on your car...how was that done? black paint with red metal flakes? this is all very interesting to me.... anyone with more info, please share. thanks.

The Kameleon colors are extemley easy to use, just make sure you use a black base.

Entirely untrue.

not entirely..if you want the turnout that you paid for then you would want to use all the hok products....diffrent companys use diffrent chemicals in there products...so theres a good chance you may not get proper adhersion between diffrent products causing problems such as solvent pop and lifting

^^^^^^^ false when i used HOK products i always used ppg`s dcu 2021 clear or dcu 2042
and never ever had one problem with solvent pop, wrinkle, lifting
i will type it again
HOK products suck PPG OWNES YOU ALL

I prefer X-otic myself. Little cheaper than HOK, but the outcomes are totally amazing, and wonderful stuff!!!!!


FYI: Chamelion/Kamelion paints will vary in color when different bases are used. Darker (Black) base is recommended, but you can get pretty cool effects with other bases as well.

Candee/Kandy colors... depends on what base you use as to what color you're going to get. I HIGHLY and I do mean HIGHLY recommend X-otic paints. They have (I think it's) 1x3" Candee overlays in which you can lay over any base you want to get the EXACT color you're going for. HOK does not have that. Whenever I get around to painting my car again, I'm using X-otic. Their products are FREAKIN AWESOME!!! Easy to spray too. Haven't tackled a Candee (which is how X-otic spells it) paint yet, but I'll be doing mine in a Candee I've never seen on a Fire before.

You can get paint codes at a store that sells automotive paint.

Fallen, you do a great job at painting...I can't wait to see your sunfire painted in a "candee" color!!!

Why thank you!!! I can't wait... but with college commin up in August... it just may be a while lol. I'm thinkin on shooting it for now in X-otic black primer until I can get a new front bumper (mine's trashed), new sides (both urethane, sides and front that is) (I HATE FIBERGLASS AND PA ROADS!!!), couple of dings, and a spot on the right quarterpanel where someone hit it with a metal beam. These people were moving into a new office, I was at work, I SEEN them carrying the metal beams in between their truck and my car while I was waiting for my boss to get to work... I go into work... go to leave and see it. So at least my car will be all one color again until I get the body work done..... again. I'm rambling... I'm going to shut up now lol.



DROCHER>> X-otic paints... you have to find a local X-otic paints dealer (If that's what you were referring to). Go to the web site, locate a dealer, find the one closest to you and call the number. They will give you ones closer to your area.

I also have to get a new front bumper...mine can be fixed, I just don't want the blitz front anymore. Still have lots of body work to do...I know how ya feel!!!!
