Since I posted an opinion of SPI products and made reference to the typical hobbyist who visits this forum.........I think a visit to my photo album and look specifically for the 34 Ford pic's might give some insight on where I'm coming from with my comments on SPI products. The '34 Ford and the '57 Chevy pictured have all SPI products except for the basecoat which is PPG. The owner of the '57 sold the car for $165,000 which was too cheap in my opinion, but it was his to sell. He didn't have the nerve for the "no reserve" auction in Scottsdale where it would have brought more. I'm not braggin' but the top coat and the shine makes the car. Yes the '57 was shot in a home-made booth, as you can see, but the key is the ability to work the product up to a week after you shoot it. Try that with PPG, Dupont, SW or any of the others.

Rosewood,

It's Torch Red, PPG. and SPI MS clear. I have the number somewhere, but I would need to find it.

chroma vs spi

Barry not only makes a great product they have awesome tech support and they all know their sh**. My first experience with the product was less than desirable, ( issues with my equipment and environment ) They actually spent time on phone and email to help me sort it out. Also advised me to try a different technique different than I was using. The results were outstanding, I have only been using SPI for about 2 years. I bought products several years from a local supplier, who is knowledgeable but not as willing to help due to the fact I am a hobbyist. My local providers caters to the collision market, however, it appears SPI can cater to both. Sure in my area they have to ship it to me. I try to keep it in stock so that is not an issue, but if I run out, I wait for it. that's how strongly I like the products (and price).

I really don't care what you recommend. Recommend what you think works. The point of my post was to simply inform the guy asking the question that next to everybody on this forum will recommend SPI. That means two things, it's a great product, or people are sheep. And judging by some of the people on here, I think its the former. When I redo my car, Ill probably see if I cant get some SPI.

BMM,
Your choice of words sounds like you have an issue with SPI, the owner, or some of the users of this forum. Your statement above is not backed up by the facts as a search of the "Body-Exterior" forum will prove.

I do used cars,collision and resto work,I've used just about every brand of clear out there...some of the best clears I've used in my 35 yrs has been Glasurat and sikins but if I had 5-600.00 for clear I'd just buy more SPI, its that good ...If you want to do spot jobs just add some accelerator (nason works well) its as good as the best and much cheaper.If there was a better deal out there I'd be using it....getting the most out of a dollar is what I'm all about....BTW I also use DuPont bases ,and chroma clear was my choice before I tried SPI...I dont use ALL SPI products just the clear and epoxy....because they are simply the best bang for the buck.dupont has some superior products too.Fandelli has the best sand paper.But as far as SPI goes the clear itself is good enough to buy and get hooked on but when you factor in the customer service You'll see why we love it SOOO much....This is NOT the SPI board and I of all people have no reason at all to push SPI products Barry and I do NOT see eye to eye on many things ...When I feel a product is is great, I say it,without any politics, nobody elses opinion really matters to me,unless I'm looking for advise. SPI clear is worth triple the price they charge and very user friendly...customer service is hands down THE best I've ever seen.

Woah, hold on guys. I did not call anyone on this board a sheep, as I stated "judging by some of the people on here, I think its the former". Meaning its a great product. What I meant was quite of few people on this forum either paint professionally, or are hobbyists who appear to do quite nice work. If they find SPI works great, than it must be good. Nothing wrong with that at all.

Im not here to raise ****. I have no problem whatsoever with SPI, Barry, or anyone who uses their products. I've never used SPI (hopefully I'll get a chance to sometime soon), and never heard anything negative about it.

Again, all I was doing was simply informing the OP that SPI is easily the most commonly recommended product on these forums these days.

Cheers.

Sometimes you almost need a degree in writing to avoid a conflict,even then, it happens.I'd recommend it to any first timer too. it takes all the pressure off from screwing up 600.00 worth of clear...if you screw something up its cheap enough to redowithout a second thought but like I said its very user friendly...Anyone can do a nice job with it.and it buffs very well also....its just so much better than the other clears at that price its ridiculous...

Lol. No worries brother, I think it did sound a little like I was nay-saying SPI.

All this SPI makes me want to order some up and shoot it!

Once you try it you'll understand....We can be a loyal bunch when it comes to a few products we use....it seems everybody wants a piece of us and every month a new clear comes out or some other new product,trying to cash in on the newbies inexperience.most of it is pure BS ,were here to help wade through the BS and make some good choices with our experiences, good and bad....BTW,its a rare occurance indeed when so many pros can all agree on any one product,VERY rare...BUT, when they do........... its worth checking out...

Ordered up some universal clear and sealer yesterday. The salesman was very helpful and I got free shipping because the jobber in the Las Vegas area did'nt have the sealer in stock.
