sorry for my broken english
I did spot repairs for a couple years using ATX. It's not the greatest paint but most people dislike them because of their toners and ability to match color, specifically on metallic. Oil based paint is house paint last time I checked and not what you have, unless they also have an ATX labeled paint for house paint, that would cause a lot of confusion. I think your painter rushed the job and didn't ensure the kind of cleanliness needed to paint and fed you a bunch of lies. At least he could have made it sound believable.
