View Full Version : Spies Hecker

K, I want to do some work on my Audi but have determined that Standox cost to much (largerly due to the sizes it's sold in) and Glasurit is not available from either of my two local jobbers
Spies is available though and I can get the Topcoats and Clears in Liters as opposed to the 5 Liters off Standox.
Has ne1 here shot Spies b4? I'm used to shooting Dupont ChromaBase (base/clear) and Nason Clears.

I have, Im not crazy about it but its not bad. Its thick as primer unless you over reduce and I don't like to do that so I just stoped useing it. If mixed as labled it will flow alot but the trick is knolwing how much ahead of time, hard for me as I was not a costom to it.
P.S. Have you priced the reducer, WOW!
I think you have to buy it in 2.5 L, about $80.00

Thanks for the input. The mix ratio is 40% to 65% reducer which seems about the same as Standox was.
I'm trying to stick with the paints used in the Factory for my car but don't want to end up with something that's a PITA.
I forgot how much the jobber told me the reducer was, he said something about I needed to get a "job pack" for my color code. But it didn't seem as outrageous as Standox was.
Odd as you mentioned about the flow being similar to primer, but the tip reccommendation is 1.3 or 1.4 for a HVLP Gravity Feed setup.

I looked for the tech data I had but Ive lost It. I may have been misinformed I thought it reduced 10%.
Never the less I have 2 Lt. of hardner and 3.5 Lt. of slow reducer left that I won't use, its for sell. Its not old, at about 3 months its as good as new. Private Message me if you want it. Hears a pic. The clear can is almost empty I just wanted you to see what I used. As far as I know the hardner will mix with any Speis including primer or what ever. Sorry it took me, Ive been busy:D
Don't forget... You are accepting a lot of liability when you ship containers of paint. You can get in a lot of trouble if they leak AT ALL. It would be best if you could sell it locally.
To be legal you need to ship these materials via UPS, label them ORMD and have them packaged properly.

What do ORMD mean? Also is buying the paint shipped different than at the local jobber where I don't need any paperwork? Yet!
