    I emailed several of the big companies, like PPG & BASF.
    So far everyone has said they either don't have it, or they have it but it's only for OEM. As in, the companies who make the cars (think...

    I've been researching single stage a bit more and am warming up to the idea.
    Sounds like you don't want single stage for metallics or anything fancy.

    I'm new to painting. Do you have time to explain why you would recommend single stage over two stage?
    From what I've read so far, the two stage has better UV resistance?

    Unfortunately, there is no way to bring any vehicle into the back yard.
    It was a good idea though.
