I will, I assume the blending solvent at paint store is a replacement for using reducer for blending. Is it better?

Maybe. I've been blending before those products came out and see no need to add additional expenses or inventory. Although, the prices of what I do use tend to go up regardless.

Just an additional note. I don't use reducer at all. I use dupont 3661S with everything I finish coat. Fast dry thinner (any brand available) for primers and 2K. Again, I keep expenses and inventory down.

Thank you for clearing that up, I probably would have done that wrong for years to come.

I have to agree also... but I think your looking for a "rattle can" solution ,right? so at the paint shop they can mix you up a pint and you can put it in a co2 paint sprayer "reuseable rattle can" to get what your after...dont try your first blend without a pro there to literally hold your hand to show the technique we use

I would like to thank you all again, it looks like I can get close which is all I'm looking for at this time. I have several projects going on at the same time and not enough money, LOL! Anybody have any suggestions to fix that?

Thank again
