    when you sand and buff into metallic you expose the metal. your pad will turn black. they may have polished it some but if you try to cut and buff it will change the color and streak.
    as for shopline or omni or the rest they are lower end resins with less pigment. will take more to cover . no one can sell top shelf paint cheaper just because they change a label. i did a tri5 with omni black and ended up redoing it with concept. i will throw it away before putting it on a car.

    Ok as for me (the OP) I will be using a base with clear, with metallic. I'm not shorting on the paint. Plan on using ppg unless someone tells me its crap. The biggest problem I have is identifying the correct paint, there seem to be many listed under ppg. Using the internet looking at the ppg web site doesn't do much for my education so your inputs are most welcome as long as it pertains to 2 stage painting. Thanks.

    Water Base Urethane Base Coat will be best for durability and easiest for application for you. I know DuPont's latest water base is Cromax. I am sure PPG has one as well, but I'm not sure of their product.

    Navy, I've not shot any of the new water base urethane product, but what I've seen and read about it is that it's a whole new learning curve, and that you really need a dryer to speed the drying time. Bottom line, my paint guy steered me away from it since we don't have restrictions on the acrylics around here. My paint guy has almost 50 years in the business, and used to be a PPG shop but shifted to independent a long time ago. He stocks HOK for those who want it, but he pushes Matrix, which was developed by high level guys who left PPG and started their own line. You can take a PPG code and it matches point for point to Matrix, but their pricing doesn't include the marketing bump. He told me that the water based line is not for the home hobby painter, but is geared to the production shops that can afford the equipment, or that get their equipment free due to their volume of business. Now I could be totally wrong, but I'd advise you to go talk to a paint guy you trust and spend some time before jumping into water.
