Spi

I just finished using 4 SPI products, on a 1940 Ford Sedan Delivery.

Waterborne Wax and Grease Remover: Worked great for wiping down this big project.

Epoxy Primer: I used this to cover the House of Kolor sandable filler Epoxy I had already shot on it.

Turbo Primer: I didn"t really get to use much of this, I had already primed it with HOK and had blocked it twice I did have a couple of repair areas in the rear door jamb I primed with it and what little I used I liked it.

I then sealed it with one reduced coat of epoxy. And let it sit over nite.
i
HS Clear. Not knowing what to expect, I let the base coat set for one hour it was about 75 degrees here in central MO.today. I played around with the fluid and air for awhile and then put 3 coats of clear on it. I was very pleased with the results.

I will use all of these products again.

here's link with some pix's

I hope that works.

Sweet Keith, I love the flames . I have been very pleased with the one SPI product that I have used, and it helps that we have a qualified resource right here on this forum.

Thanks everyone for the compliments.

Randy Ferguson gave me the nudge to try SPI.

And thanks to Barry for taking time to answer all of my questions by phone and e-mail. It doesn't get any better than this to talk to the main man.

When was the last time PPG or Dupont president called you at home on a Sunday afternoon to answer your questions??

That is not really a FAIR QUESTION. When was the last time PPG, DuPont, or S&W were as small as SPI. Back almost a few hundred years ago they probably had better people skills. Actually think PPG, DuPont, and S&W still has great people/customer skills considering their HUGE size. Their huge size means a lot of pay rolls going out so the prices are higher.

Your paint job looks great and it is very nice to have a company such as SPI offering paint products at a reduced cost. But Fair is Fair when it comes to statements!

Good Luck

You are correct. I should of chose my words better. However I doubt seriously that a paint rep from a large company would give a first time low volume customer the courtsey of calling them on a Sunday.

I didn't buy SPI because they offered paint products at a reduced cost. I can buy reduced paint products locally and choose not to.

Please accept my apologies.

Do we need to find a local retailer to buy the stuff or can we call SPI for an order and have it shipped? Their web sit only offers help in finding a retailer.

SPI pic's

I am not finished yet, delivery is going to the upholstery shop. We left the front clip off to keep from getting scratched. Here are some more pictures of the 40.
