for milano red, my book says Base/mid/clear. Guess its just my book.j_t_heilbrun said:base/clear designates the type of paint either base/clear or single stage. It doesn't tell you how many stage paint it is, since a tri-stage is still base/clear
You know...... I was POSITIVE it was....... I didn't mention it because after reviewing the '97 TSB, it said it wasn't. I was looking at the wrong white (I was at work and trying not to get caught on the net :laugh I do know that it is the absolute HARDEST paint to match though........alphajesse said:I can assure you, Premium Pearl White is 3-stage paint.
You should have seen the bodyshop bill to repaint both bumpers.
Was I interpreting the TSB wrong? Milano Red is a 2 stage with colour added into the clear....... Base (1 colour), Clear (with colour mixed in).j_t_heilbrun said:base/clear designates the type of paint either base/clear or single stage.

i dunno i don't have the mixing book. i have the chip book. and for Chroma-Base its a 3 stage. for Nason its 2 stage for milano red.j_t_heilbrun said:thats weird, remember my book says milano red is a 2 stage.
Does it list two formulas for the diamond white or just one.
j_t_heilbrun said:sometimes different brands require a tri stage like in the case of Milano Red PPG requires a tri stage and Sherwinn Williams uses a 2 stage.
Not all pearls are tri stage just pearl whites.
