No one is trying to be offensive about anything. Someone asked for advice and several of us have tried to offer some attempting to be helpful. I understand that sometimes, cheaper products have to be used, especially in a Production environment. However, I try to use the best product possible at all times, so I avoid the "cheap" jobs because I don't want my name and reputation ruined because someone did not want to buy quality materials or pay for a quality repair. Like I said earlier I have no experience with Summit products so I will not comment good or bad, for or against them. I have on the other hand used the best that Dupont, PPG, and MS have to offer and find that SPI epoxy, 2K, high build, and Clears are superior to them in quality, usability, and price. I agree there are cheaper products than SPI and do not argue that point, but I will say that cheaper is not always better. Would you take a car that you had 400 hours of work in to Maaco to get a paint job because they can spray it for $500 instead of spending more to do it yourself with a quality paint? I don't think anyone would, but maybe I am wrong. I will personally and publicly apologize to you and anyone else on this forum if I have said anything to offend anyone. If I have it was completely unintentional. I would never intentionally make a comment that I felt was attacking or offensive, but I also understand that my wording is sometimes not the best. I only hope to help someone with my experience ( and there are a LOT of people on here with more knowledge and experience than I have) and personal experiences. I wish you the best in your projects whatever line of products you use now or chose to use in the future.
