new dupli-color paint system

Has anyone out there used the new dupli-color paint system so many of the weekend cars shows have highlighted? It seems like the old lacquer paints jobs with a clear coat on top. They mention the ease of painting with excellent results. What is the real story? Durability? Looks? Cost?
Thanks, Joe

Simple, quick answer- it's not durable like today's products, and it comes pre-reduced to "avoid user error" ie it's geared towards morons. It's not such a good deal; reducer is cheap and if you want to paint I hope you're not afraid of measuring and mixing.

On the plus side, it could be used for practice shooting (shoot a subwoofer box or something), but shooting thiis stuff isn't going to be the same as shooting urethane SS or BC/CC.

Somebody actually brought me some of it to shoot a mirror. They told me they had bought "professional paint" and all I had to do was prep and shoot. It looked real nice but I warned him it wasn't the right stuff. He didn't care because it was a send your kid to college beater Honda. It even matched the red on the Honda pretty good too.

As far as I know I'm the only one that bought some and tested it out and posted my results. I ask the same question and did not like the answer I was getting so I found out for my self.

I shot a test panel, set it out side for well its going on two years this August.

First before all the pro's get all up in arms. It not something your want to paint your custom car with.

I like the primer, the paint and clear where ok. If your a first timer and want to play around and shoot a beater or a off road truck buggy bike you can shoot it real easy in your garage. Real cheap to do, don't need to know much. If you need to do a repair or a touch up real simple to do!

Last There are higher end Laquer out there if your thinking of going old school I would look at going with them and the UV additive you can get now.

Thanks guys, I knew I would get a correct answer on this board. I think it would probably work on a daily driver, but not on my car. Appreciate the help. Thanks again. Joe

I bought a can of the stuff out of the budget bin at the local parts store so my 12 year old could use it to practice with his new air brush that I got him for his birthday It works great for that.

Not very durable
it is a Acrylic lacquer
very expensive for a Poor quality paint (compared to enamel or urethane)
It is 23.00 a quart...Already thinned...that is 92.00 sprayable gallon.
It is already thinned...It takes bare minimum One more coat to cover that a good Enamel.
Looks good on Tv....Good for the Shows rating..Like hotrod with the 500.00 500HP 350 chevy

I have used this stuff...VERY poor Coverage (dup the Public..Sorry duplicolor)
3-4 coats to cover....

Enamel is what $70.00 a gallon and you add your hardner and reducer

You get 1.5 gallons Sprayable
Covers in 1-2 coats

But all the guys looking to save a Buck think it is Great..till they use it
This thread is like the thread..Spray vs Roll

That's the clincher, it is NOT cheap! It may look cheap until you consider how much you will have to buy and you will have to buy a lot because not only is it already reduced it has very poor coverage. I can say this from experience now since the previous thread because I have used it (owner supplied) to paint several antique tractor parts, not been on there long enough to comment on how long it will last except to say it is just Lacquer, it smells like Lacquer, sprays like Lacquer, covers (or not) like Lacquer and the manufacturer says it is Lacquer so it must be LACQUER! The manufacturer does not claim this to be any kind of "new and improved" Lacquer formulation they just say it is Lacquer and the pitfalls of using that junk are well known.

Same old stuff. bashing
What I like about you guy's is you never reviewed the vids to see what there saying. How about a fair review of the product or is that below you? Tell me whats wrong with there statements or claims.

Watch the paint shop one I think the power block did the best job in showing the product When they paint the Bronco

Watch those goofy sales videos, SALES VIDEOS? You have got to be kidding, what do you expect them to say? Think about it, THEY ARE TRYING TO SELL PAINT, hell they would claim it would improve the weather if they thought it would increase sales!

Chevy the dang stuff is lacquer! Some of us learned to spray with lacquer years ago, used it for years and we ALREADY KNOW what it is and how well it works (or not), and I personally have used the Dupli-Color (owner supplied) since this came up the last time so I know first hand it is the same old junk, and over reduced at that! You have had a bunch of pros here that have MANY YEARS of combined experience weigh in on it so what more do you want?

You have been told repeatably but it will not sink in because it is not what you want to hear, no matter what anyone says you just continue to make those ridiculous unsubstantiated claims that this is somehow some kind of "new and improved" product from a well known supplier of low quality paint.
