Mr. Barryk, Help, Help. Help!!!!

Im Here In Savannah, Ga. Ive Used Spi Products With Excellent Results When Coastal Auto Color Carried Them, Well When I Ask My Jobbers About Getting Me Some Of The Spi Products They Try To Steer Me Towards There Cheaper Lines Such As Nason Or Dimension Or Croosfire, Well If I Wanted To Use Them That Would Be Fine, But I Would Prefer Using Spi. I Cant Seem To Get Them To Order The Spi Products. I Have Used The Cheaper Lines Such As Nason Clears With Poor Results, Same As Crossfire And Dimension.im A Small Shop , And I Know I Dont Spend As Much As The Production Shops , But The Small Guys Do Add Up!i Know I Could Order It Through Baker But The Shipping Is Ridiculous On Gallons Of Products Because Haz. Cost.man I Wish You Would Come Talk To The Jobbers And Start Promoting Your Product Here.the Spi Line Is Superior!!i Guess Im Just Frustated Today, Any Help Getting These Guys To Order Your Product Would Be Greatly Appreciated.what Would Be Even Better Would Be Getting Them To Carry Some Of The Spi Products. Keeping It On There Shelves.thanks , Mike.

Andy told me about two weeks ago tha Danny Butler was going to start building up inventory a little at a time, I'm sure if you requested something he did not have, he would get.

Never expect the three major stores to put in, as the threat by the paint companies is on going that they will pull their line if they do any SPI.

It was Napa that got use thrown out of the Coastal store because they sold a lot and it was not looking good.

Please get someone in South Ga to carry SPI. When I see Danny
again, I'll mention SPI ad it's superior customer service .

I Would Drive Out Of The Way To Be Able To Buy The Spi Products,and Yes The Spi Was Selling Very Well When Coastal Auto Color Carried It, I Was Using It All The Time, Then All The Sudden They Werent Carrying It Anymore, And There Trying To Sell Me Croosfire, Which In My Opinion Is Junk!! Same As Dimension,junk, Junk, Junk!!!now I Have Used The Nason Base With Very Good Results Only On Overalls, Really Not To Good For Color Matching, But As Far As Clears And Epoxy Prime And 2k Your Product Is Some Of The Best Ive Used For The Money. It Is Up There With Sikkens , Chromaclear,etc....i Know The Thing Is If They Carry Spi It Would Cut Into There Sales Of There Products No Doubt,come On Down Here And Open A Store Up, You Would Get All My Business, Like I Said Im One Of The Smaller Guys Now, Ive Worked In Production Shops, Etc.. Finally Opened A Shop Several Years Ago, I Will Do 2 Overalls A Week Or 6 Or 7 Spot Jobs A Week, Man What I Would Do To Be Able To Go To The Paint Store And Be Able To Buy Your Product.its Quite Frustrating Dealing With Some Of These Jobbers Here, Anyway I Guess Ive Said Enough, Thanks For Your Help, Mike.

I've inquired around here as well with some of the suppliers and they all basically hold their arm's out and show me the LARGE set of handcuff's hanging on them.

Sure That Is The Response I Get, I Called Baker The Other Day And They Said Sure Youre Jobber Can Get Spi From Us No Problem, But It Is A Problem, They Had Rather Try To Sell Me There Line Than Get Spi, And Im Sure It Is That Way Everywhere, Its Quite Frustrating, Mike.
