There is no such thing as a "black clearcoat" that i know of...

You will have the black "base coat" first..then a clearcoat over that....

It really doesn;t matter the color of the primer as long as using a high solids base coat or single stage color,just certain primer colors help give better color coverage with the top coats.

Some paint manufacturers will give a "recommended" primer color for certain colors,but it doesn't mean its a neccesity.

I've painted many things black with red primer underneath and never seen a problem.

I agree 100% with Ironworker. A lot better than gray primer anyday.

Thanks for your wisdom here. I really meant black "with" clearcoat. My problem is the paint looks great at first, but, it seems like they painted black over red primer.

Or over like a red basecoat maybe? You can see it at sharp angles and when the sun hits while driving etc. Not absolutely terrible but still noticible. Its like a hazy red bleeding through. Did they f it up?

Sounds like it, unless they used a red pearl in the clear to give it that effect intentionally.
