Yea, I checked my PPG dealer for lacquer a few months ago and it is available.

They said that they could only sell it to individuals and not to businesses.
Don't know whether that is State or Local rules.
I live in Austin, TX.

I ended up going with the single stage urethane (PPG Global DG) for my Vette.
Still looks like lacquer when color sanded and buffed but get the extra durablility.

Your right, lacquer can be good for your use or for an authentic restoration.

I've done both lacquer and SS urethane on older Vettes. (non-metallics)
Can't say lacquer is any easier to work with than the ss.

Laquer is harder in that you have to put on more coats.
SS is a little harder to color sand.

SS looks better in the door jams where you don't color sand (unless you are anal).

Overall, about the same amount of work.

Why not go with ss and get the durability?
Chipping, cracking, holding up from the sun all better with ss.

In any case, never use lacquer primers. Everything under that paint should be a 2K product. So, you should be equipped to handle spraying products containing ISO's anyway.

I guess after some real-life experience with a car painted with Duracryl acrylic lacquer, I would not want to do it again! As a finish for a concours car that never sees the outdoors, great. Nothing buffs out like lacquer, it is truly a marvel to behold! For a real-life car that will even occasionally be exposed to things like bird poo, tree sap, or even a rare incidence of gasoline spill, just wait and see, it can be miserable!

Laquer was easy, fun, and looked great when fresh but it sure doesn't hold up like the urethanes available today.
