I have better luck with big rig fleet parts stores. for cheap paint..
don't know what the difference (if any) over the tractor paint.
I do know the local bodyshop/autoparts jobber.. doesn't sell cheap paint..
a pint of 77vette yellow.. so I could accent my rally wheels to body color..
in a single stage was 70.oo then add reducer and activator...
that was nasan brand (dupont cheap line)

but eastwood/summit sell mighty cheap "hotrod" paint.. tho..
shipping adds to it.. it's still cheaper.. than what the local jobber lines cost..
the limits I've come across is color choice in the big rig paint thats mostly for the frame/dump/etc than the cab..
