PPG Deltron alternatives

What would be cheaper alternative for PPG Deltron paint? I'm just wondering if I could go with Omni since I'm painting whole car. It's solid color, Tor Red (PR3)

Omni would be a good choice but you will probably have to put on extra coats to hide since it doesn't cover quite as well. Just use a good quality clear(if its a BC/CC) and you will be OK

I'm not a fan of Omni myself due to poor color matching. However, if your using PPG now you might consider PPG Value Pro from your distributer. It covers well and color matching is generally close enough for blending in most cases.

Go with the omni plus line. Real good coverage on the reds.

There are drawbacks to going cheaper, I would hate for you to find that out. DBU and DBC are expensive no doubt but they are primo paints and IMHO well worth the money.

SW's Ultra 7000 wouldn't be a bad option. KemFx makes a product that covers as well as DBC for like 1/3rd the price if you buy it online at www.thecoatingstore.com. I used their red colored sealer and then one coat of the old code T candy apple red from them and it was covered. I put a second coat on for good measure but didn't really need it for coverage.

If you put white first ... red will go twice as far.. brand names mean nothing.
Waterbornes cover the best
