I could be wrong but I believe the fusion doesn't require a primer. They don't have much of a color selection tho

I just got done spraying a black silverado red and white using fusion. The white covered entirely in 4 coats. You'll probably need two cans to do the job.

Thanks, I made the stickers pulling images from the internet. Printed them on Avery shipping labels. We'll see how well the work in the real world. I don't want to hijack but the truck is being covered in "silverado dumpster recovery-pimp help needed.

Thanks, yeah it's tedious and will probably be ruined after just a few batteries.

Maroon fusion will cover the pink very well. Dark colors cover up lighter colors nicely but the converse is not always true. Also the two colors are similar...from a color wheel standpoint. Avoiding the white base coat will also help to hide future scratches better; the white base would make them stand out. If your target color was not a fusion color then I would say do the white fusion base coat first or use a "plastic primer". If anything needs further explanation then feel free to ask.

I would hope so. I went thru 7 cans of Graphite fusion to cover all the mustang pieces but the Graphite does not cover quite as well.

The Fusion Pink has taken 2 cans just to cover the front/rear bumper and 1st coat on the undercarriage on my yellow corvette. I am estimating at least 3 more cans to complete the job.

Dark colors cover better than light colors in general. A light color over a dark base will take a lot more to cover. On the converse, a dark color over a light base will cover quicker.
