duplicolor vs vht which is best?

i sprayed my VC a few months ago and now it starting to flake. i believe it cud be caused by oil that had gotton on it, or maybe the primer or the extreme cold that ny has been going through. i used high heat dupli-color paint. but now i hear people talk abt vht and i want to know is VHT better? or are they exactly the same?

Re: duplicolor vs vht which is best?

if you used high heat paint PROPERLY (pay attention to that word) then it shouldn't be coming off, if you stripped/primed/painted/cleared PROPERLY it shouldn't flake.

Personally I would use duplicolor for painting most things, however I did use VHT NiteShades to tint the bottom half of my tail lights.

Re: duplicolor vs vht which is best?

ya, if its flaking off. could just be it wasnt prepped good enough. when i did my VC, i used the aircraft stripper. then i washed all of it off, let it dry, and got acetone and wiped it down. do a light coat for the first coat, dont completely cover it. just a heaving dusting. then do normal coats after that.

It's all in the prep work. For me VHT and dupli-color have had similar results( good results.)

Like most people have said it matters mainly on the preparation of what ever you're painting.
