Im in AR ARKANSAS we have bad Humidity also,lol!!!
my store that mixes and sells me Pro spray tells me that they have several Shops that buy the SS and they all love it.
i just have no need for it doing collision work....
i do have a Motorcycle Trailer i will be spraying Black SS in the next month or 2 and look forward to trying it out.

I see your in Az ,Hotbo...I believe the hardner problem has to do with our humidity (man you guys got it made if you can find the shade)...any brand of my hardners will dry up in a few weeks...
I've found a lot of guys that use the pro-spray base but very few have used the SS .Its not available here so I'll have to order it,the price was very reasonable and I like SS for my solid colors ....I'll be using it on my old plymouth ,I'll let ya know what I think..

You will love the Pro-spray Base
haven't tried the SS yet?
i have never had that problem with the opened cans of Hardener,Ive had open cans for weeks and never a problem?Maybe ive gotten lucky,LOL!!!!!!

I've also been concidering pro-spray for a base and SS ,I've talked to quite a few pros and everything I hear is positive...Cant wait to try it...

|Aboven||Thanks guys for the help again I am going to order some spi and see how it works out if there are any tips please let me know my paint rep is kind slow at stuff|

i use SPI UV everyday at my collision shop.
Love the **** out of it.
i can speed it up or i can slow it down and no matter what i can always spray it the same time after time,
very hard to make Run and lays like glass for me.
i sprayed it over PPG DBC base for a while till i quite them and went with Pro-spray never gonna look back
love Pro-spray Base as well,color matches far exceed anything ive ever used and i have used a lot.....

As a shop owner and a painter I know both sides of that deal. You want the best quality product you can get at the lowest price.Mostly I've used dupont chroma clear for quite a few years until I found SPI .Now I wont use anything else. Its a 1:1 ratio and costs about 100.00 for each part so you get two sprayable gallons for aprx.200.00 It reminds me of Glasurat in many ways.If your doing show cars you'll love how it buffs that alone will have you sold..Your boss will love it too...Its cheap enough to use for everyday work too....
The black job is SPI over Chromabase and the red job is SPI over nason ful-base...(the cheap stuff)

you can go to SPI website and find out all you need to know.
Best of luck,no matter which clear you choose.
as a painter you have to take control of whatever clear or base you use,dont let it control you

Spi has many clears and they all are Great.
i sprayed Dupont and PPG for years,im not giving them any more of my money for a lesser product...

I've been learning to shoot the Envirobase "oneVisit" clear.
First a drop coat or mist coat, then a one minute flash time , then 2 full wet coats wet on wet spraying it how you want it to look all in one visit to the booth.
The idea is less time running the fans,lights,heat etc. let alone opening and closing the door stirring up dust...
Takes a little getting used to but after a few projects I'm enjoying the absence of waiting between coats and hanging some mills on there that surprisingly don't run off
If it isn't at your panit store/jobber yet it soon will be

|rickschaf||The Martin senour tc732 high speed clear lays down great, just make sure your mix is correct for the temp your spaying at, also I use sata gun's.|

|Old Fool||best clear at a great price, tell your boss to buy SPI.|
|02-26-2011 02:07 PM|
SPI Universal is the best spraying and user friendly clear I have ever used.
I used PPG Concept 2020 a few years I would occasionally get solvent pop even waiting between coats. Could have been my fault though.
Never had a problem with Universal.
