It's Cypress Green Pearl, G82P real nice color imo. A quart of paint is $202 from local PPG jobber.

Omini is about 30.00 a guart plus 100.00 for a pint of the good stuff mixed at 1:1 would give you 3 sprayable qts that should be plenty,so you'll be at 130.00 plus reducer (good reducer) compared to 500.00 and thats just the base...but you'll know for sure when you go around the car the first time how much it'll take..A pint of the actual color will be enough though.
The last car I did was 96.00 a pint for Chroma base, PPG was even higher (bourdeau red) 08 GM

Thanks for the tip, I might try that. Anything to help save customer money helps.

This is a good tip. I'm sure there are those that will argue this technique, but we have been doing it for sometime with the higher priced colors. Also a good money saving tip with highly transparent colors to find a color as close as possible in the cheaper lines to cover everything so you are not trying to hide gray primer/sealer with the transparent colors. Best of luck to you, hope everything turns out great. Happy New Years

I did this years ago, when I was painting guy's boat. He wanted blue and I found some mismatched blue metallic paint on shelf. I didn't have enough to do the job so I bought some good paint and shot it over mismatch, turned out great.

Well I shot it last night. It took whole quart of Omni and it barely started to cover. Then I shot 2 coats of Deltron to even out metallics and blend into quarters.

The pictures look great...there is a big difference between Omni and Deltron when it comes to coverage isn't there.

Lots of pearl in this one, color really looks nice. Omni didn't cover well at all but Deltron was thin as well, however Deltron had factory matching paint while Omni was way off.

Your right Deltron has variants whereas Omni only has one formula per code.

I've used DC5020 clear, I had good results with hit before so I'm using it and for the price I pay for it, you can't beat it.
