i have a ruby red 93 coupe and need to paint the nose (rock chips, 1 stress crack) i will have to fix one spot and sand and repaint. my question is; when i primer the nose i will use a epoxy sealer/primer and am wondering if the factory primer was tinted w/ base color or was it just grey. i have the correct paint ($160.00 qt) and want to match the nose to car he best i can.
thanks

Be sure to use Flex agent in the Primer or a flexable parts primer!! The factory primer was not tinted!!!!
