    a question for ryan999 whoever else who has exp. with cmp h2o ill be demoing it next week anything i need to watch out for? good color match? does it blend easy once you learn the proper technique for the product or is it hard no matter what? do most all colors cover in a coat and a half?

    Color match is ok. Not the best I have seen. Most colors hit pretty good, but there are quite a few that are off. I think as time goes by it will get better. I always submit the poor matches to them and have seen some alternates in new updates for some of the colors. It is still fairly new compared to solvent.

    All will cover in 1.5 coats as long as you use the right valueshade. Most of the time I will spray 2 medium wet coats and an orientation coat or 1 wet, 1 medium, and an orientation coat. Always wet on wet. You can do 1.5 coats but your first coat goes on pretty wet. It seems that I get a little better finish with the method I use.

    Blends are cake. DON’T FLICK YOUR WRIST! You will have a grainy mess. On your orientation coat just make nice medium-slow even strokes at about 60-70% overlap and when you get into your blend area pull back. Dont pull back fast, just pull back and let it blend in. Always use the blender, it will keep it from getting grainy, even on solid colors.

    Make sure you get enough on to cover the first time. If you let it dry and spray more base on it will dieback. If in doubt make that extra medium pass before your orientation coat.

    On two-tones make sure to use 2075 and let it sit for 1/2 hour. Don’t wait 10 minutes thinking it has been 1/2 hour or you will pull base off.

    I haven’t had very good luck spraying it with Iwatas. Seems like it would get really wet but after it dried you could see through it with a sun gun. Never had that problem with a Devilbiss CVI, Tekna or a Sata RP.

    There are some other things such as what humidity to spray at but it depends on where your located, and there are a few more things if your interested. Keep us posted on how it goes.
