It was a liquor base coat with a urethane clear coat
Hey Troy, where can I find that basecoat and what is the proof on it. Might be hard to get any work done using that. Just Kiddin, I know what you mean. Deltron base is my favorite also. Have used both Chromabase and Dbc.

5-6 years ago a study was done that said painters were the hardest people to employ and to manage because they are artists and more selfcenterend, etc,etc and just plain hard to get along with. But with this Liqueur base coat I think us painters would be a lot easier to get along with!

He said he was talking about AE but he would shoot Acrylic Urethane. Does this change anyones opinion or does everyone still want to push me to bc.cc? He said the paint would be about 130, so that is less than what he quoted me for bc.cc. Is AU still a single stage? How does it hold up compared to bc.cc? Disadvantges to AU are?......

I was wondering if anyone heard of Delstar. [PPG]
I have had some good luck with it lately and it can be polished and clearcoated like bc/cc. I am about to do my '39 and will probably use the bc/cc cause most of my supplier options have gone to that as an only option. I really like lacquor but the sun here likes it also and will eat it up in a very short time.

Acrylic Urethane is the next best thing to BC/CC. It is a hardened single stage paint that has most of the same properties of BC/CC but just doesn't have the robust UV protection that Clear coat provides.

Milo, probally solid
Can you get the "mile deep" look with an AU paint. I want a mile deep type depth and a dark blue, so dark that at night just glancing parts of it might look black. LIke the new VW's the bettles and Jettas have a color that is real close to what i want I dont know if any of you painters know this color but Daytona Blue is real close to what i want as well. So yes i do want solid... So your thoughts milo? and others?

The "deep" look is really a result or how flat the final surface is and the reflection of the light hitting it.

Ok so say i go with a solid deep blue, not sure what blue just dark. But it still has to have a good blue hue to it. How is the AU going to hold up. How long of life should i expect on the paint? What kind of shine will i get out of it. Is the black picture above an AU job? If it is does it look as good up close and in person as it does in the picture? My truck will be a daily driver and rarely see a garage. I am buying a custom fit cover from lmc (unless that is a bad idea) In about 5 years then she will be garage kept, until i buy a new truck though the 70 is all i got my parents are going to sell my 93 ford to buy my brother a jeep.

That is a diffrent blue than what i saw, the guy from the show didnt know the brand of the paint so he may of had the color wrong. I am going for a much darker color. AU bad choice or not?

This is like what i want. Only difference is that has a little bit of a purple quality to me. I would prefer lighter and no purple. But that gives you an idea of the "darkness" I want and pretty dang close to the color. The purple may just be false interpretaion via reproduction and viewing on the computer. In fact I am pretty sure it is. I picked out a mercedes color very simliar to that out of the paint book
