I've used wanda paint on a few job over the last maybe yr and a half. I like it both the way it goes on and the way it looks when cleared. Also like the price a lot. Did a dodge that needed the side painted. Cost of a pnt. of ppg $130. Cost of a pnt of wanda $ 38.00.Do you really need to guess which one I went with?

I've used it on a couple of paint jobs now. I like it and I like the price. My local distributor is willing to work with the home DIY guys.

For resale red it would be hard not to go with SPI but for the other mixed colors I would like to here how you like it.

I have used Wanda several times - lastly on my own car. I am a custom painter, so I usually just stick to what I know works. Well, I ventured out and used Wanda on my car - lots of custom paint work. I REALLY like Wanda base and clear. The clear is so easy to spray - it lays down smooth, sands and buffs great and the shine is unbelievable. Most other companies had my color as 3 stage, but Wanda had it in 2 stage. I can not tell the difference and it looks superb. Yes the price is great, but I do not look at the price when doing these high end jobs. I look for a great product - and Wanda stands with the best. I have used Martin, PPG, Omni, Standox, ICI-Nexa, and others. I am very happy with Wanda and its performance. Give it an honest try, if you can spray, you will not have much to complain about with this product.

I keep hearing good things about Wanda. Unfortunately it is not available anywhere around Chattanooga or Nashville, Tn.

My supplier was talking about opening up his business to the internet and shippping it. Contact me if you are interested. I just checked the Wanda site, apparently there is a place called Byrd's Automotive in Chattanooga, Nashville and Madison. They should have it for you.

I've never had my car painted fully nor do I have any friends that paid a shop to fully paint their car. Any idea how much a good paint job would cost where they would also fix little dents as well?

Depends on type of car, color, condition, labor rate, and what you want done. I've done $2500 up to $20,000+ paint jobs and done full builds over $150,000.
