The first step to a good-looking finish, is the right basecoat
When it comes to creating a nice finish on a surface, basecoats are often the first step to looking finished. This coat is typically sprayed on over primer and will be the actual base color of the finished product. On its own, a basecoat is essentially just colored paint without any special properties. For gloss, weatherability, and long-lasting wear, additional clear coats, and treatments are layered over top.
What is a Basecoat?
Basecoat or base color is just “raw paint” and just like the name suggests a "base" for the actual color of the vehicle or item. Basecoat does not contain hardener (with a few exceptions), which means that it is raw paint that is sprayed on the bottom product. Basecoats itself is not resistant to wind, weather, or scratches, and if left in a raw state, you will see noticeable stains on the surface that are either rusting or damaged due to moisture
