    The body supply store I do business with just closed its doors. I always have shot PPG with good results. The only other store(joke hardware store) that sells auto paint only carries sherwin williams. One of my dads customers (a body guy) told me that SW is total crap and noone uses it? All the body shops around here only use PPG and have in house mixing. Anyone have any experance with SW?

    I've used it for years. I try other brands, but just keep coming back. I don't paint professionally anymore, but I've just sworn off DuPont. I have had good results with PPG, but just know the Sherwin clear a little better.

    Try it. Maybe they'll give you a deal for the brand change over (tell them you're a painter or something and you're trying a new brand)

    I've shot Sherwin Williams acrylic enamel with good results, never tried the base/clear before though.

    I'm so poor I can't even pay attention [​IMG]

    Ive used it a bunch too. Only the Acrylic Enamel.. always works well for me. I have used PPG also and agree, its a good product too. Sherman Williams is the maker of the paint that NAPA sells, under the name Martin Senour. Because of its low VOC's its the only Acrylic Enamel (single stage) you can use in California without having to clear coat.

    the dupont imron 5000 is a single stage and it is legal to use in ca...thats what i used on my truck...i also shot 3 coats of clear over the top just for a little added scratch layer.
