alright, so i plan to paint my 77 concours here soon but i still need to buy paint. I plan on going out to Sherwin Williams automotive paint store tomorrow but i have no clue as to what paint to buy. (i went and bout the duplicolor lacquer paint and ended up returning it due to bad reviews)I'm looking for a cheap but still good brand and quality paint. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
Stephen

I had my nova painted with martin senior which is made by sherwin williams and 3 quarts cost me $700 that was for the base coat, when I went back to get a single stage touch up they don't make my color in that. The guy who painted the car likes it better than PPG. When you pic a color check to make sure that touch can be made in single stage. Just a little info that I ran into this week.

I switched from matrix to SW. Here is what I bought which is not top of
the line but very nice for the price. Finish 1 high build which right now
is on sale around $53. a gal with hardner. Also the **ish 1 FC720 clear
coat which is on sale about the same price. Both of these are 1/2 price
right now to get people in on the name as they changed to this name.
I also bought the Dimension base and sealer.

A buddy of mine has been using these for several yrs and does air brush
work, guitars, bikes etc and loves this stuff. And shooting it so far its
just fine. You will be satisfied. The gloss is deep and the base I got (black)
covers very well.

I'm giving a thumbs up on the paint just make sure you can get touch up in single stage, other wise you will have to will have to do a touch up in a base coat/clear coat to get a match, I love the shine and color. If you need more info contact Danny at mailto:dannyo@dannyosflamingcustoms.com
