    Im really starting to dislike onyx (water). Current problem is Chrysler PBU. And have had same problem with most blue colors, a subaru last week. And almost all blue colors. Hb 471 that is causing a horrific violet pitch. The tint is supposed to be on the green side but that is not the case. Anyone else have this problem? The camera makes the color look better than it is.

    I wish I could help you out bondobob but I’m using 100% low voc solvent,have you tried spraying it in solvent,and that’s a pretty transparent colour too,are you able to blend it out

    I have had some trouble with this color, usually it has to do with the pearls and/or metallic coarseness. You will find some versions that have a violet pearl and some that don’t, it can really throw people off (and make blending impossible).

    Have you looked at the service formulas on this color? There are quite a few. I’d look for something that doesn’t contain CB34M to begin with.

    Yes I have them, I have mixed a few in water and left the 34m out also. The face of standard is a little green and coarse In solvent. Maybe because I dont have 202? Took 6 coats then I dumped it on and baked to cover ground coat! Ive been on this color since 11 am fri til 9 last night. Got to shop at 8 this morning.

    Seems to me the 471 has the red pitch in water… have had this happen with 464 also. I think im gonna try switching to solvent for a while.

    Here is a tinting guide for Onyx if you don’t have one, see attached. In colors like this I like to do what you’re doing already, leave a bit out and gradually put it back in. Good luck!
