|matt167||I'v found restoration shop paint to be very decent. It's not top of the line, but not bottom of the barrel either. Ditto on removing the dupli.|

|SmileGuy49||Thanks for the info. I checked out the prospray website, but could not find where I can buy it.|

check into prospray . it is a quality paint and fairly priced. base coats all mix 1:1 . for clears check out SPI . dont be fooled by 2nd line paint. it's cheaper for a reason. does not cover well so you end up using more.
but the duplicolor has to come off before you paint.

|SmileGuy49||I am not opposed to using activator, I am more interested if one is more user friendly than another (easier to mix, or longer working times). Thanks|

|shine||there are no paints of quality on the market today that do not need activators. any 1k product will be short lived and of poor quality.|

Best DIY paint on a budget?
Hey guys (and gals, if any are reading this)
I am getting my 65 chevelle 4door ready for paint, but am wondering what paint system I should use. I have a few areas of bare metal which have been covered with Duplicolor's Self etch primer. There are a few areas that I have also had to add some bondo. The majority of the car is still factory paint that is in pretty good condition (faded a bit, but not cracking). I have sanded the paint to break through the gloss and create a good surface to adhere to. I am looking to spray this myself in my clean, climate controlled shop. I have painted small projects before but this will be my first full car. Like many, I am on a budget so I need help finding a good paint that will not break the bank. I have heard people complain about the difficulties of some paint systems with complicated mixing of activators and reducers, so I am unsure what I should buy. Any help choosing a good system to fit my needs would be great!
Thanks for the help!
