Kirker Single Stage Paint Anyone?

Has anyone on here used the kirker single stage paint and if so how did it work? Then sent me a color chart and have been pretty helpful and their prices are reasonable. I am really trying to figure out what kind of paint I should use for single stage acrylic urethane. If not Kirker any recommendtions?

There are a lot of people who use Kirker paint. The quality is good, and the price is great. If you see a color you like, you can't go wrong. Stay away from other smaller companies selling paint.

I'm a newbie who has used it recently. Coverage and quality is excellent. For me though, basecoat clearcoat was easier. That Single Stage likes to run a little, plus the metallic control is a toughy !!

I ended up using the Kirker for Jambs & inside trunk, then bought base & clear for outside. Of course the paint-store screwed it up totally and it wasn't a match, but it looks okay anyway !

Good luck. I also love their 2K perfect prime primer...

Kirker Single Stage Paint Anyone

Used Kirker paint on my son's 32 Roadster and am very pleased with the results. the paint was easy to spray and a breeze to buff.

Never used the single stage but I've had great success using their urethanes on Corvettes.

Their urethanes are great, and like any urethane, they're tough.
The acrylic enamel as like any enamel, not even close in durability.
I would never use enamel if I could use a urethane instead.
Day and night difference in durability.
Be careful in sayin "single stage" they're both single stage
but very, very different.

I haven't used their paint yet, but it looks very high quality. I do like their spectra series candies. They really look awesome. I am going to use it on me next project, from begining to end.
