Duplicolor "paint shop" paint

Anybody on the Forum ever used this stuff. About to do a color change on the 92 S model from white to black and want to see if it's a product worth trying out.

Re: Duplicolor "paint shop" paint

I'd go Macco before trusting a $20 can of paint. Just my opinion though.

Re: Duplicolor "paint shop" paint

well id never use duplicolor that stuff SUCKSSS
i used krylon and alot of hard work on my front bumper cover and everyone says it turned out great most cant tell its a rattle can job. and its lasted about a month and well into lovebug season and still looks the same as when i painted it
used about a 3/4 of a can of base 1/2 can of primer and a can of clear and it looks wayyy better than macco IMO its all in the prep work and not using duplicolor

Rims with spray paint are a different story. Duplicolor Paint Shop is not spray paint. It comes pre-mixed in a can, you poor it into a gun, and you spray with it.

Re: Duplicolor "paint shop" paint

Dood, that's 10x better than I thought. LoL. I wish I had my dad's wagner. That makes a nice even coat easy to achieve. A little prep work, some thinner and good technique would make a sweet paint job. I used to oxidize and refinish metal professionally. The right tools, product and technique makes all the difference.

Re: Duplicolor "paint shop" paint

Don't forget to clean your lines on the gun if you have pro spray equipment. Those spatters are beastly man. Can you say START OVER and DO IT AGAIN?

Re: Duplicolor "paint shop" paint

It's a nice idea, but I just can't trust Duplicolor enough to paint a whole car with it.

Re: Duplicolor "paint shop" paint

Problem is most people skimp because they don't know the prep work involved. You can achieve a great finish but it's a lot of labor. If you have time, space, proper equipment, I'd say go for it but otherwise pay maaco ;] We had it a little tougher achieving a good finish on bare metal. We'd spray in the cold, heat, windy conditions, whatever it took to get the job done. Those spray boothers got it easy man. Bake it on? no wind? ideal temperatures? PSHHHH bring it on body people!

Re: Duplicolor "paint shop" paint

Lol, when I was 17 I decided to paint my Accord in my driveway with some $50 Ebay paint. We won't talk about how horrible the outcome of it was . A nice learning experience though.

I'd honestly love someone to use the paint shop system with their "Championship White" and compare it to the Honda OEM "White Diamond Pearl". If it's a quality product and a close enough color match, I'd be willing to try it on my bumper and side skirts (I really need them repainted too, lol). Who knows, maybe the new paint is a nice quality. I guess I really can't judge 'till I see it in person.

Re: Duplicolor "paint shop" paint

Maaco and spray can = pretty much the same thing. I would NEVER send any of my cars to Maaco. I wouldn't even let them paint my bicycle. I have seen lots of paint jobs done by them and I cringe every time I see one. There is nothing but paint drips, orange peel, and over spray all over. There is a reason why a body shop charges $1500 or more for the same job Maaco does for $300. If you really don't give a sh*t what your car looks like- go to Maaco, otherwise stay far far away.

Re: Duplicolor "paint shop" paint

the **** works alright but you need to thin it out (WITH ACETONE)
or it will clog your gun like crazy.
but before you even do that you need to open the car at the parts counter so you can see how much of your product is all clumped up inside the can, hopefully less than 20% of the can, lol
so after you exchange it 3 times for a can that isint bull$h!^
shake the crap out of it.
and by all means
WEAR A GOOOOD RESPIRATOR or you will reach a higher level of consciousness with the $h!^ they put in the can.

once you get past all that its a great product.
you can essiently spray a gallon of product for $40-$60 depending on your dilution.....which is good, until you spend $20 on acetone now youve only saved like $40 tops off some cromabase or nason half decent stuff.

just to give you an idea, if there are any taggers or hard core spray can modders, if youve ever got a lil high off some paint from w/e its like that x10 with a respirator on in the booth......

Re: Duplicolor "paint shop" paint
