cost of materials are high no doubt about it. but the difference in the cost of first line and second line products is minimal compared to a failure. if doing a low cost scuff and shoot it's fine to use them. but know what you are getting and the risk you take . you will not get any warranty relief when using them. warranty is not free . spi is a proven product with a good track record among many high end shops . the few on this board that have a problem with it either have not used it or know very little about paint chemistry or performance. their problem is personal with mr knives who owns and makes it. i have yet to talk to a professional who has used it and does not like it. cost of materials is not considered when doing top shelf work . performance is . if your doing collision work it really does not matter what you use. 2 coats and out the door is all that matters. it is after all a repair . choose your products wisely. to spend months getting a car ready and then use a low end paint is just not worth it. take a few weeks longer and use the good stuff . if a 100 bucks is going to break you then you are in the wrong hobby . many come here with no knowledge and just want sound advise . not some google expert or magazine reader who has little to no experience in the real world of refinishing. i will not call nason junk, it is just a low end product with many problems to overcome . problems a first timers will not know about or what to do. just like cheap equipment. give yourself every advantage you can.
