anyone had any experiance with this paint?..someone sells it in an eBay store..has alot of great feedback on the paint..im not going to post the ebay name or store unless asked..i dont know if there is any rules against this in this web site or not..dont want trouble:eek:
just wanted to know if it was any good..the good or downfalls of it
im thinkin of painting a bronco II that i cut the top off of & took the top 1/2 of a ranger bed & welded on to give it the factory look with a SS urethane & a clear coat for durbility..have been told this is better than the BC/CC in the hot sun here in south Ga for hold up against the UV's..thanks in advance..John

I have used this paint and it's a weird deal. The outfit that sells it claims it to be based on Sikkens technology (Akzo Nobel) but they have absolutely no technical information whatsoever for their products and the worse customer service I've ever encountered in my life. The version of paint that I've used is their basecoat/clearcoat and it worked somewhere between OK and after a fashion.
The entire operation seems to a group of Okies in Missouri mixing up paint instead of moonshine. Now it is true that I've tasted some excellent moonshine but without any P-sheets using unbranded paint seems a bit risky unless it's a non-critical applicaton you don't mind doing over.
What really bothers me is the description they offer for their single stage urethane on Ebay where they state that the activator (poly isocyanate in an acrylic urethane system) is already in the paint and activated by using lacquer thinner. This is such a crock of BS and so completely rediculous to anybody with a Chemistry background as to be laughable.
Is it possible that the stuff can work? Yes. Would I paint a hobby horse with it, yes. Would I paint a car I cared about with it. No.

well...i geuss i am goin to be the test rabbit here so to speak..lol..i was anxious & ordered a gallon of the urethane midnight blue metallic & a gallon of the urethane clear from them..i thought it was kind of odd they said the activator was already in it?..also..i asked on the phone about the clear & if it needed reduced to spray right..he said..i wouldnt recommend it..it is already setup to spray?..& he did tell me if i needed more reducer for the paint that laquer thinner would work fine..first i heard that one too & im still just learning ins & outs of the paints..oh well..geuss i will be letting you all know how it goes..thanks Dennis.....John
