Its all personal preference. Every painter will tell you what they use is the best. PPG, Dupont, any of the big brands work well.
English body supply in Duncanville has some nice PPG stuff that won't shrink and is top-of-the-line. Thats what I picked up on Friday. I forget the number but there are only 2 that they carry. Cheap stuff and this stuff...about $150 per gallon.

The biggest thing I have been told use the entire system from one manufacturer. If you choose Dupont use their primer, sealer, paint and clear. Don't mix and match.

Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.
