autozone dupli color vs croma-base championchip white

to start ya its a down ecomony and every doller saved is one that can go into another part.
im almost done prepping my lude for a re-spray this weekend trying to get it ready for a dyno-car show feb 6th.
i have everything i need to paint guns to tape everything.
this is going to be my 4th car and ive been buying the usual f-me in the a$$
paint from our paint stores going about 300+ a car for a 2-3 stage

i have been looking at genuine nh-0 champion chip white croma-base at a retailer out here for about 260 for a gallon and activator.
not to bad until i saw already reduced championchip white paint at autozone for $22 a quart. add my buddies employe disc. and your looking at 18bux a quart
thats about 80 bux and i can cover my whole car easy, plus a cf hood i need very little. for that price i can paint 3 of my cars for the cost of 1 (nearly)
bottom line is has anyone tried the autozone championchip white and what did u think of it.

autozone is a PARTS store not a PAINT store, think about it.

Re: autozone dupli color vs croma-base championchip white

the paint is made and bottled by dupli-color in pints so autozone can make max profit whitch is dirt compared to what a paint store's are making.
its not like the autozone intern is mixing and filling the paint........

as long as the color scheme is correct it will work fine i think...

im gona try it on a fender i have lying around and see how i still feel about it.

Re: autozone dupli color vs croma-base championchip white

the stuff sprays like a dream did not gum up my gun or anything very little overspray it is already reduced but its like magic. the color i dunno because it got sprayed under florescent lights and the sun wont come out because its raining like Armageddon over here. under incandescent light it looks awesome.
i need the f-ing sun to appear will post up pics as soon as possible.

on a side note i am gonna head down to the paint shop for some clear coat and see how they feel about the stuff.....
