Shine, I've seen the infomercials that demo this DupliColor system. I was so impressed I went out and bought some. Then again, I was also impressed with GLH (Great Looking Hair). I wasn't going bald but just in case, I bought a one-year supply of this stuff:

WOW! This post is still going! Funny stuff! I started it To see if the product works! because of the negitive feed back it was all I needed to test the paint out and to this day the paint is doing fine!
1. Is it a great paint NO!
2. DO you need a booth NO!
3. What everyone forgets when comparing price is the learn curve equipment and all the costly mistake that never seem to end time and time again!
4. Basic skills and understand the procress is all you need!
5. no mixing or figuring!
6. To the Pro that has already done the learn curve The point is well take why when much better product are out there!
7. For the guy that does not want to do the learning curve and the high cost of mistake this is a paint to think about cost! project! skill level! and equipment and tools.
8. I think it hits a place in the market! As for me that would be the old beater daily drive dirt bike dune buggies 4x4! retouch repaint as needed!
9. Its a new formula which means its a lot friendlier than bc cc
10. Last and let face it Its all going water base soon. So it a mood point anyway! don't you think??

the guys that see the dupli-color in the parts store and read that its ready to shoot right out of the can.
are the same guys that have never painted, never been in the auto body supply store, and think using (mixing) real auto paint is some magical voodoo!
they look at the can and say, hey i can do this, and dont realize they can use the good stuff also (with better results).

I have used the duplicolor Paint shop!

Hey there ChevyTruckGuy. I have read your post and I too have thought long and hard about the paint from duplicolor. So i researched it really good and come to the conclusion that i would take and try it. Guess What? I am not a great painter by no means, i am a diy guy and believe me this was awesome. I decided to paint my dash out of my 38 Chevy pickup. I ordered the mineral gray, it was $22.00 a quart, I bought a can of primer and then a can of clear also. I had it primed in no time and let it cure as the directions said on the side of the can. which was a step by step process, i then have sprayed the dash a total of 6 coats, i have not sprayed the clear yet do to my shop is not climate control, so it will hang until it gets warmer. To make a long story kinda short, i have used the Duplicolor Paint Shop lacquers paint and so far it is great stuff. go ahead just go with your gut. i did. and have not regret it at all. By the I have a good friend that does custom painting and he said he would use it to. so there you have it from a guy that has used the product. have fun and enjoy.

I agree you can! Still everyone forget about that good old learing curve and the tool and costs you need to get that result and lets face it may not be the first time or second time. But my reason for seeing a use for this product is not the same as most!

Laquer

I guess if your painting a beater and just want a temporary fix... ok, but it would only look ok! for a short time! I've done high end lacquer jobs that were beautiful back in the day but only after huge time spent wet sanding and polishing, and babying, the elements will kill it! guaranteed! we used to do spotins on the floor on the 70's and 80s gm cars (gm lacquer)and could achieve a decent match and finnish, those cars would die out in no time,

Etch

If they are aluminum I would apply a light coat of etch followed by a light coat of epoxy, then paint, always worked for me, steel the same but etch is not as important, if you want to clear bare aluminum... house of colors makes clear a product to promote adhesion..cant remember its name,

Etch primer

Thanks....I suspected that would be the case...I had watched a Overhaulin show on TV and they installed a crate Edelbrock. The heads came out of the crate aluminum, but they painted them red to match the block...In my case I had melting of rubber and plastic due to a garage fire....I've tried a lot of stuff to clean the heads up, but the casting areas are simply stained to the point that painting them seems the way to go. I've had the oil pan and manifold powder coated with a turqoise blue and thought I would do the block and heads in black. This will be consistent with the two tone color of the car.

So, your saying follow the etch primer with epoxy...I assume the dupli-color ceramic requires the same as epoxy?

etch

Sorry I,m really not all that familiar with duplicolor, but aluminum needs an etch so I imagine it would apply to duplicolor as well, I forgot to mention I would scotchbrite the shiny area's to give the etch something to bite too,
