or more importantly, the correct proportions of everything? That Ful-thane uses a different mix ratio than just about anything else. First time i used it , fella at the paint shop rattled a ratio off the top of his head and i shot a panel , and I could tell real quick something was bad wrong.( it wasnt making a lot of sense to me why the same brand primer theyd sold me with the same activator worked perfectly , but when used with the paint it went to poo ) and I spent a couple days on the internet trying to find the correct mix ratio for that blamed stuff ( Du Pont is rather tight lipped about it in their literature) ( and then recalculating since the paint shop didnt have mix cups with a ratio even close to a multiple of the needed ratio marked ) i found the stuff very friendly to work with, and I've used a bunch since. just turned out it has a different ratio than what I was told
