    You guys would be very surprised what is licensed for production and by who. I get this right from the regional management of each company. Again you need to see it to believe it. I have.

    you wont find any rumors or guess work there . any bs advice is deleted immediately and the poster will get only one warning. unfortunately the internet is full of as much bs bad advice as good advice. some of the so called experts on some other sites are surprisingly absent there even though they use spi.

    That site that shine suggested is tops. I'll lurk mostly, seldom check in, but it has to be the best automotive painting site on the net. Additionally, the owner of SPI is a great guy to talk to and do business with. My '31 is primed and cleared with the SPI materials. I used DuPont's ChromaBase as SPI doesn't offer colors now but black

    Here's a good first step - Block Sanding Kit 3 Sanders-2PSA paper Guide Coat Guide coat & block sand to ID low spots. If shallow (~1/16" or less) just fill with a good quality body filler and sand using blocks & 180 to 220 grit. Two coats of epoxy primer, block to check one last time for lows & highs, and a final prime coat for any sand throughs. Watch the video on the Eastwood site page attached for some basics.

    never try to fill one at a time. on a bed rail just glaze it front to back and bring it all down together.

    I agree with shine on that going after individual spots will drive you nuts, especially if you keep sanding too much off!

    i'm waiting on proof. i've been in this business for 40 years and have never heard this. if i thought for a moment shrink and wrinkle was the only brand i would retire tomorrow . if they make such great paint for ppg and others why is their own line so sorry.

    Since ppg was mentioned, check out the toners of their Deltron offering, do not be surprised that more than half of them are not, I repeat not produced by ppg in a PPG owned plant. yes, PPG does make quite a bit of their own coatings, but when it comes to certain automotive lines/toners/reducers, again, you would be quite surprised.

    Just like East--woods brand is not produced by them, but relabeled from several other manufacturer lines (low,low end stuff regardless of how they market it).

    Bill S.

    PS: Dupont and Sherwin Williams also buy product from one another s manufacturing lines...And again, we are talking strictly automotive refinishing products here, toners, pearls, reducers, hardeners specifically

    PSS: For those who doubt, ask yourself this, have you ever known me to post rumor or innuendo......You have to go way up on their food chain to get proof, not one of them will publicly state it or even acknowledge it for that matter, but that does not make it untrue.

    How do you get a $151 sale price to come up? When I click the link it says $189, you save $4.95... Today's Deals doesn't show it, either.
