I'm not a paint expert by any means. I did see the show you are refering to and it got my interest too. since my truck will be a daily driver and I'm sure not going to win any shows with it...I'm seriously considering that paint. But I checked their website and it seemed the color selection was limited. I will definately keep an eye on it though.

This stuff is perfect for my Camry.

Guys I saw the show Sunday also and recognized the guy doing the body work as one of the guys who produced a paintuation DVD I purchased. But back to my story. I have 95 Camry , I hit a 200 pound deer with years back. So I just went to a salvage yard and bought a OEM used hood which is blue in color and does not match my Dk. Emerald Pearl M car color. They have the spray can color to match my cars color, so I'm thinking of just using this to match up the hood color to the rest of the vehicle. The hood still has the serial writing from the salvage yard. So what do you think, scuff up the hood which has the factory paint on it still in perfect shape with some 600 grit and let it fly. Then spray on some clear and buff away? this sounds like fun and this vehicle I drive is my "Downtown" mobile. So I'm not to concern about being perfect.

They used the product to paint the truck I think it came out good and the price is right! The question is how good is the paint and will it give you 6mons or 6 years. Can't wait to try it.

This was fun.

Ok, after seeing the show and reading some stuff I took my downtown mobile with its non match hood and used the duplicolor that matched my car color and painted a section. It looks great. See this vehicles what I drive down town to discourage being broken into and mood hood does not match. But bad bing. Man that stuffs cool. My wife came in from work and saw my test section and was amazed that the paint could come that close to matching out of a can. Can't wait to paint the rest of the hood...

The Duplicolor product is acrylic lacquer. It will NOT hold up for a everyday car that sits outside. Avid rain , bird droppings , etc. will destroy it rather quick.

FYI - I am a fan of lacquer and still use it on classic cars even today.

Not a paint guy either BUT wannabe! I have been told by someone I feel is very knowledge to stay away from Laquer. Urthene is the way to go. But with that said you CAN'T bypass the price. Mine is a daily driver, actually a weekend driver but is exposed to the elements 24/7. Would LOVE to see some pics of a completed Duplicolor car/truck. Pre mixed is a little more expensive in the long run, but convient and if you are painting a panel at a time with a PreVal sprayer, MAY Be the ONLY way to go?

I'm going to shoot my Son's truck in black using the Duplicolor system We just got it in at the local Checker Auto 22.00 a quart ready to shoot. Davids did a show on this paint to and he said it was a good paint to start with. I just like using lacquer it the way to go!!

I think its the perfect paint to shoot if your doing it at home. So time will tell if it catches on. I think it will and make everyone else follow suit.

I was intrigued by this stuff in the parts store the other day. Near as I can tell it's already "reduced" and ready to spray. My guess is that it is the exact same stuff that they've sold for years in spray cans, just in a different package. Given that, I won't be painting anything with it. I could, but a single stage synthetic enamel paint wouldn't cost that much more. And I'm pretty sure would outlast the Duplicolor stuff by a wide margin.
I'd like to hear what more experienced folks have to say about it though.

Well, maybe someone can post prices of this stuff and then we can do a comparison. It's pretty hard for me to understand why a guy would want to go so cheap on paint when the finish can pretty much make or break the look of the vehicle. Enough decent quality acrylic urethane to paint a car can be bought for about the same price as a decent flat tappet cam and lifter set.

I quoted a checker auto price $22.00 a quart primer paint color and a clear coat a complete system.

So primer 22 bucks a quart then a paint color then a clear coat.

So far Trucks and Gears have given it a thumbs up as a starter paint home projects.

So what the problem?? If you go to there web site you can watch them shoot a car with the whole system! so don't knock it tell you try it.
