Lower Priced Paint Primer n Crap

I was readin through another forum and came across a link. Prices looked pretty cheap to me, but I'm no paint guru heheh... A couple people from the topic had ordered and recieved their stuff, But I'm always weary of online buying. I like to see what I'm buyin in person. Who knows with prices like that I just might get somethin' couple months down the road....Just thought I'd pass this along and see what yall think about it. Prices look a little cheap to anyone else? These people must buy alooot of bulk lol.

The problem with ordering paint is that sometimes you have to pay the hazardous shipment fee. I ordered an 8oz bottle of MEK hardener for some polyester primer/surfacer. It was only $5.95, but there was a $20 hazardous charge.

i get all my shop supplies from smart shoppers. their prices are awesome on everything. the main paint line they carry is kirker and i have tried it. the clear coat is horrable and i have talked to others that have had the same problems. after i tried the clear i dont want to bother with any of their primers. buy everything else from them except paint, unless your using house of kolor. they have the cheapes prices anywhere on that. as far as clears and primers go, i highly recommend southern polyurethanes. their universal clear is awesome and is easy on your wallet, even after shipping.

Cool thanks for the heads up MrCleanr and Vince Just realized In 5 days or so sooner than i thought earlier im either going to epoxy primer my elcamino (its been in red oxide laquer primer all summer even though I have everything i need except paint and a booth, but my garage and some plastic sheeting will do that trick ) or get lowering springs 2" all the way around or both if I have enough I was debating wether or not I should go through with the online ordering, as I see more and more people buying online it eases my mind more and more. The prices also help out too heheheh.

I've bought nearly everything on-line from a $2 decoration to a $4000 Cadillac and have only been burned badly the one time I broke my own rules.
I've also bought Rayflex paint from the guy on eBay. I probably won't buy much more paint on-line. I've found the big name second line (PPG Omni for me) is only slightly more expensive and there are advantages to using a local dealer. I can decide to do a job at 10:00 on Saturday morning and be shooting at 1:00 that afternoon. Also, my experience says Omni is about 5 times easier to work with than the Rayflex stuff.

Equipment and supplies - on-line is fine
Actual paint - I'll stick with a local dealer.
