Haven't finished painting the body yet, but here's the frame I recently painted on my sedan/delivery project. It's TCP Global - Restoration Shop, BC/CC. In these shots the paint has not yet been color sanded or buffed out.





Many more pics in my journal

On the TCP Global site it is Firethorn Red Pearl, # UB2701. The clear is Kustom Shop speed clear #KC-210.

One note of caution, depending on the light source this color can appear much more of a maroon in real life. So it's a good choice if you want something that varies from the color show in the pictures to a darker hue as it passes under different types of lighting. However, it would not be the best choice if you want a red that goes from the pictured color to something even lighter when out in the direct sunlight etc.

I like TCP global.... I'm not a professional though, I just screw around with stuff in my free time. I've sprayed Kustom shop epoxy primer, and single stage acrylic urethane from the restoration shop. I've liked both of them very much. One funny/quick story, I once took the epoxy primer to a local pro shop to spray for me, he had never heard of Kustom shop before. After he finished, I came back to pick up the parts, and in a conversation we had, he said "...you probably paid something like 60 bucks for this quart right?...." but in actuality is only cost 37 bucks for the primer and the activator.

I'm going to be using them again on my latest project. This time I'll be getting the BC/CC full kit... I'm thinking....Charcoal Gray firemist.

Something I'd like to see is a disclaimer of business association to go along with all these SPI endorsements that seem to come as knee-jerk reactions to any mention of any other source of paint products.

The paint on cboy's frame looks good to my non-pro eye. It's just a shame the early part of the thread was really off-topic and unresponsive to the question asked. You have to go all the way to the end to get good info on tcpglobal.

I know you asked specifically about TPC Global...Yes I've ordered a lot from them , my last paint job I ordered over $5,000.00 from them , mainly HOK paints. Yes they are a fair company to work with, with fair prices.

That said, I still can't stomach the mentality of always looking for the cheapest parts, this time it paint. Personally I like HOK paints, but Emron is also at the top of my list. This is the best paint I've sprayed for lasting.

One question I have for you is do you use any sort of fresh air system when you paint at home?? I hope for your sake you do, but in-case you do not, please stay away from the Urethanes, work with the enamels and lacquers instead. Of-coarse the right way to do things is to use the proper equipment, but I do understand there are those that choose not to.

I would like to echo some of the same comments about TCP Global. They are a fair company to deal with with fair prices. They even have an E-bay store you can save a few bucks on some specific stuff.

I have order the following:
* 3 Finex guns ($20+ dollars cheaper than local paint shop)
* 3 learning how to paint Videos (decent quality videos with some good tips)
* Restoration Shop - Acrylic Enamel paint kit ($100 - decent paint, not great like a Dupont Centari, could not repair defects in the paint because of noticible color change)
* Kustom Shop - Hotrod Flatz paint and semi-gloss clear (sprays really well, time will tell how the paint holds up to the elements)

Total Spent with TCP: $500
I would use these guys to buy stuff to learn how to paint. Then graduate to the PPG, Dupont paint at the local place, or just bump up to the HOK stuff.

All have been delivered in a timely manner. No screw ups on billing or addresses.


See pictures of my work below:
The Red convertible was painted with Firemist Red Acrylic Enamel and the Finex guns from TCP.

The Kandy Purple mustang was painted using the Finex guns.

Not sure who you were directing this question to but thought I'd chime in. This is the fresh air system I have and I use the direct feed full hood. The system runs about $400 and about another $100 for the full body, reusable, paint suit, gloves, booties, etc. You can look it over at this web site.

my experience with TCP Global

Disclaimer:
This is my first time shooting with BC/CC and I do not have the best guns. So look at my pictures, and remember, that this is what someone with minimum experience and equipment can do with TCP Global products!
I just shot the TCP products on the Mustang.
Used the High Build Primer, Basecoat and Clearcoat. Sprayed in an outdoor booth using a Finex 3000 gun and was pretty happy. I used a MSA respirator with correct filters.
I know it is not "show quality" but that was not realistic for me.
I shot 3 coats of base, but probably could have gotten away with 2 coats. I then shot 4 coats of clear knowing I had some orange peel to take care of and needed to maintain my minimum mill thickness. I bought 2 of the 1 gallon BC/CC kits just in case I had problems or need future repairs.
I really dont know if there would have been a difference or not if I had used a high end paint product...
