Actually is a Perfect Match

Comments about Duplicolor Universal Black:

I used this Universal Black BUN0100 to repair 2 Ford vehicles both with factory paint code UA. Both times it was a perfect match. At first it seemed darker but after applying clear coat (Spraymax 2K high gloss), color sanding, compounding, and buffing it matches perfectly 95% of the time. The only time I see a difference is when the sun hits the area at a certain side angle which then shows the original paint to be more cloudy or grayish. I suspect this has something to do with the different clear coats and levels of paint since I painted the center of a panel and tried to blend it with the original paint.

The only complaint I have is that the finish is not uniform or high gloss as specified, and is not very smooth. But I had wet sanded this base color then applied the clear coats and wet sanded, compounded and buffed and that brought the shine to match the original areas.

              Comments about Duplicolor Universal Black:

              This stuff would be alright for a shade tree bondo cover up job, but if you are looking for paint-gun like results, skip it. I used 8 cans of black and clear to paint a dashborad. All of the cans had sputtering nozzels that made it difficult to get a smooth finish. It's very expensive for how much you get and overall, I'm just not that impressed. Probably fine for your '89 chevy corsica that you rubbed a bumper on, but definately not for the dashboard of your '38 chevy coupe street rod.

                  As long as either surface is prepped for paint the way it should be, this should work on both surfaces.
