The thing of it is even if you stay in the same paint line there is always a rare chance you will still have a problem. I have a friend that works in a body shop in the boston area and has been doing body and paint a long time, so occasionally he will work on one of his own cars when things slow down a little. This plymouth he did about a year ago, was done with all high end PPG, no cross mixing. A few days after it was painted he went to blow off some dust out of the engine compartment and don't you know the clear just blew right off the car in sheets. Now this is a guy that does this day in and day out, using one line of paint and still has a problem and a big deal at that. Of course his jobber supplied all new base and clear, but he was stuck on all labor. So just because you stick with all the same high or low end paint lines don't think that some freak incident can't occur.
