I have been painting cars for 37 yrs. I have used PPG, Dupont, Old Acme, RM, and some others to name a few. In the old days, I compared Dupont Centari with Martin-Senour Enamels. If you wanted Centari to shine, just keep putting more on, and top it off with thinner. If you used Martin-Senour enamel it had to be clean and the drying time was a little longer, but those Shelby Ford Mustangs (enamel Ford oem), looked like they were dipped in glass. The lacquer also was great for use on GM vehicles. Today we have Urethane 1 or 2 part paints. I find that the Tec/Base colors match the factory color finish better than most of all the other brands. When using the other brands, you will find that you will need to tint in most cases. It is easier today, but it is nice when it matches, right out of the can. As I have said, I have used them all, but will always prefer Martin-Senour over the others. If you are painting a vehical that is 5 to 10 yrs old then Crossfire is great. If you are painting a new or classic, then I would definately use Tec/Base. The results are unreal.
