Mixing Dupont and PPG question

This is my plain anyone have experiences with mismatching brands? The plain is to go with omni mp282 sv high build 2k primer surfacer with ppg DBU paint on top of that and this is where i dont know if it will work i want to use some high dollar DuPont premier clear that i have had sitting around over that. Has anyone tried a DuPont clear on a ppg paint? On the omni mp282 what reducer should i be using and how much should i reduce it? I have done a few cars but have always used dupont but your local store is going to hell. I have done one car with PPG and liked it so i am switching over slowly. Is it just this town or do you have to be a total a hole to sell paint. All three stores here are like this.

Thanks in advance for any help.

The DBU is a "reactive" strong basecoat that must be mixed with it's correct reactive reducer DRR1170 for instance...

Any clear will work on top of it

Trying to be careful and of some help here ... I can only speak for the DBU operation you asked about I wouldn't say to use the DRR reducer in primer so a safe no to the any reducer part

I am not totally sure what you mean. Complete sentences would help. I do not plan on using ddr reducer. I was talking about ppg or dupont both should work correct?

I am goona try a splain it as best I can...when mixing paint products use the proper reducers and activators for the brand of paint you are using..see paint mfr's make it different and it is not all the same..in oder to have a complete product all the additives need to be in there and each mfr has his own deal..so do not mix wet products together..now if you are using say primer from one guy and base and some other brand of clear from another that works as you are shooting over a cured product..

Hope this makes some sense to you guys..
