In my early years... the '60s... I used DuPont. By the '80s it was failing on me.

Then I went PPG until about 2010. After about 2005 I started having multiple failures due to new formulations, which they NEVER TOLD ME ABOUT! Today I only use their production color basecoats.

Now I am using a mix of those base colors, plus...
House of Kolor and Xotic Colours custom mixes...
HOK SG100 midcoat clear...
SPI epoxy primer (also used as a sealer)...
Marhyde Ultimate 2K primer...
and SPI Universal Clear.

For reducers I use SPI for the good stuff, a couple generic brands for primer and such.

These all work wonderfully together.

As far as using one paint system only... I have never had long term reliable results that are as good as what I am using today!
