EPA To Regulate Paint Supplies

Looks like the big body shops lobbied EPA to forbid the sale of paint supplies to individuals, claiming that it harms the environment. Yeah, like body shops give a CRAP about our environment. It's a scam to force us to pay high prices for shoddy body/paint work. I'm pissed as Hell. If you wish to stand up against this un-American power grab by national body shops, you can join Sema through this link.

ok, so a few people painting **** in their garage is bad for the enviroment, but a major body shop doing all their primer & cutting in the shop (and not the booth) is fine ?

it will be very easy to get around, ither buy from a napa with people that you know ( if ya go there often enough, they will start to reconize you, fortunatly for me, people who run the local napa are people my faimly has known for years ) then get them to sell you paint under the table w/o a recipte or papers, or go to a body shop and have them get paint and sell it to you the same way. It still has to get reviewed anyway, and it is going into effect in '07 and it will be in full swing by '10 if everything goes through, things might get dropped by then.

The auto refinishing industry better be careful what they wish for, or they will find themselves figuring out how to condense and recycle all of their solvents.

LOL, you really think "Big bodyshops" lobbied for this? LOL

A four or five million dollar a year (your average "big shop") gives a rats butt about some guy painting his Datsun B210 in his garage? They don't need that business. The "MacPaint" shop chains, maybe, but "body shops" I don't believe that.

As I said in this thread Barry K and MartinSR your comments please I think it is counter productive to tell a state or were ever representative that you want to continue doing something illegal.

Like I said Milo, if a guy is resourceful enough to do a frame off resto on his car, he will figure out a way to get the paint.

Workaround

An alternative may not be so easy. Remember what happened to R12? The price skyrocketed. You can still get it, but it will cost you an arm and leg. But then EPA began regulating refrigerants that DO NOT deplete the ozone. They could levee huge fines on people who continue to paint without the "proper" equipment. But regardless of how much particulate matter you catch in a filter, the thinner will eventually evaporate into the air.

And YES, the big body shops and the National Association of Automobile Sellers the lobbied EPA. But don't take my word for it, google it!

Please look at this list of reps who support our objectives and contact them to stop this big-business, power grab.

and theres even better news..
>>In his decision, Sabraw defined two separate plaintiff classes, a Refinishing class and an End User class. The Refinishing class includes “All persons or entities located in California that purchased liquid automotive refinishing products manufactured by defendants from persons other than defendants…” End Users are comprised of “All persons or entities located in California that purchased applied automotive refinishing products manufactured by defendants from persons other than defendants…” Government entities, along with the defendants, their parents, subsidiaries and affiliates, are excluded from both classes.
