I picked up a quart for a spray gun. I gave it a shot after doing some searches and it sounded like it was pretty close to original and a cheaper price. I just looked at the SPI flat black SS coatings now... looks like they sell them by the gallon that can be mixed at different ratios, so dishing out nearly $200 for trim paint was a bit out of my budget at the moment, since all I need it for are small parts for now. I'll be needing the single stage stuff for when I do the underside of the hood, core, and inner fenders.

Re: Primer/Paint Recommendations

Do your research on the products and pick one manufacturer,stick with their products thru out your paint job. Later on if there is a failure,it won't be because of incompatible components and your paint company won't have any excuse not to stand behind their products correctly applied.Ask me how I know.Each paint company has the proper products to use within their system and they will stand by them,I don't intermix paints and products from different companies.I feel safer using their dedicated products made to work together.To me it isn't worth the risk of failure for a few dollars of savings compared to the high cost of materials in todays market place.It will cost a lot to do a rework down the road.Just my .02 cents,but with 30 years of body shop ownership behind my reasons.Good luck,Tom..

I had an almost perfect Kandy House of kolor paint job done in 2007 on my 69 Chevelle until now, now any body filler that was put on bare metal has lifted.

I’ve been using Utech E350 epoxy and 2K100 urethane primer for years. They are both great primers and a reasonable cost IMO.
For topcoats, I’ve been using PPG dealers, Deltron base and DCU2021 clear.

Re: Primer/Paint Recommendations

Two weeks ago I decided to strip the back panel because I had some lifting and I could repair that without doing the whole car, The girl that owns the paint supply store in my area mixed me up 4 ounces of Global star satin black single stage urethane.
I sprayed 4 coats on top of Matrix epoxy and am very pleased the way it turned out, she also said most of the body shops around are using this stuff for a base coat and Matrix clear coat to save money.

Turns out they are a sub of Lucid technologies.
