Price don't seem to be a tolal factor to the people I have talk to. Oh yes they know there are better product out there. But there response was it was easy I didn't have to do a lot to paint! The answer to the how good it was is it ok. I said how come you didn't go to a cheap paint shop well they though the work man ship was less that fair and felt they could do a better job for the money.
On a side not I notices the price has jumped up from 19.00 a Qt to 22.00 a Qt
I assume its selling well!! based on the price jump. Its just a matter of time before someone else jump in to counter this with there own product!!

ChevyTruckGuy,

I totally agree. Those are some of the exact reason I choose to us it.

I finally was able to use the dupli color on a headlight bucket and it turn out very good.

I set up a home made spray booth to try and keep the dirt and dust off as I painted.

I used a hvlp gun from harbor freight(1.4 tip) set at 30 lbs. Temp was about 70. I sprayed 3 light coats of the primer, then wet sand with 400 grit. I then sprayed 3 light coats of color and 5 light coats of clear and then color sanded again with 1500 and 2000 grit followed by buffing using a low speed buffer.

I can not see how it could look any better. I did not have any flaws except some minor orange peel.
