You are so right Brian...the value lines in the long run (and in my opinion) have little value. That's why when it comes to PPG I recommended Deltron, if I would recommend Dupont I'd suggest Chroma Premiere over Nason. Your also right about coverage being 5 or 6 coats versus 3...let alone metallic control. Metallic control in the "value" brands is virtually non existent and from experience I know how hard it is to fight blotchy, stripey base coat. So Brian, we do agree...(P.S. I was writing my post while you posted so I had no idea you had even posted just before I did).

We're on the same page Brian...I don't think I would ever recommend Omni or Nason with respect to what the OP is doing.
