White Paint

I'm getting ready to have my 64 Nova painted and I'm looking for the brightest, whitest paint I can find. Paint codes if you have them as well. Preferably a Bc/cc system. As I'm afraid SS won't hold up as well or have the depth and shine.
I have no preferences as to which brand. I just want one that's durable. So I don't mind spending the money if necessary.
Thanks

What year was it from? I looked up GM paint codes and that white was for several years, but the code was different.
Thanks for the help.

Late model Toyota is another very bright one.
Got the code at home sorry.Like 97-up I think.
I saw a new compact of some sort a few days ago that was the brightest white I've ever seen. Not sure what it was but I believe it was a Toyota as well.

The brightest you can get is White tinting base,everything you add after that goes down hill.

But do they have it in a bc/cc? I didn't see anything on their site except ss. I don't mind using ss if it will hold up? I've just always thought it was better to go with a bc/cc system for a car that will be driven often. Don't know, I'm not a painter or body man.
Anyway, I plan to use SPI primers and clears. It would be nice to use the same products from start to finish. I just didn't mention it because I didn't want to start one of those SPI threads.

After talking with Barry a while back I feel pretty confident in his products. But when talking with Barry I never mentioned anything about the color I was going with because I wasn't sure at that time. I guess I'll have to give him a call.

Thanks

Thanks

Think of it this way.
A bc/cc will be a LOT brighter simply due to the clear.
A ss will just have "character" and not quite the flash.
IMO, They both have a distinct place in the paint world.
Apples vs Oranges.
I'd be willing to bet that SPI's white is a killer one.
I've yet to see anything come out of Barry's place that was not exceptional to say the least.

Sorry..... I guess if you are looking for the brightest white, you should just go down to the local paint store and have them mix you some. Most whites have added yellow/blue et..... But they can make you an all white paint. You might want to ask them if all base white pigments are the same for all paint manufacturers. If not, then they surely have a rating system similar to printer paper. The higher the number the greater the brightness.

Google "white auto paint pigment" and see what you get.

This is what I thought. All white paint is TiO2 based. So you just need to get some pure white paint from the local store.

Quote:
TiO2 is the white pigment used in practically every can of paint that isn't black. It comes in two crystalline forms: rutile and anatase. Papermakers and makers of paints and plastics usually prefer rutile, which is made using a chloride process. Anatase--made with a sulfate process--is preferred for polyester fibers.

No need to be sorry, I just wanted to be clear on what it is that you are trying to show me.
I looked at probably twenty or so white cars today and couldn't tell which one was the brightest white. I thought this little Toyota I saw was but then I saw a new Buick and it looked really white. Then I saw a Honda that looked really white. I just couldn't tell which one was brighter without seeing them side by side. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to pick one and go with it.

No, just have the local paint store give you a gallon of pure white without any added pigments. That's as bright as it gets. My Honda white is a mix of a bunch of other colors as well as a white TiO2 base.

An added advantage of using PURE white is that you will have no difficulty matching the color. All TiO2 pigment is the same.
