Ok, So the mix is with the reducer, right? I'm now leaning towards the Summit brand urethane paint, any one out there with experience with that brand? And the mixing part is with the reducer. I should get a fast drying reducer since I'm, in South Texas and it's HOT
Are urethane paints better than lacquer? All the show cars when I was young were painted with lacquer ( I'm 53 ). Then it seemed like the urethane paints took over and lacquer painted cars had to stay out of the sun and in the garage all the time for fear of losing it's shine and fading, etc. So how about Summits urethane paint? Is that better? It's still in my price range. My painting buddy passed away and I'll be doing this car all by myself. No show car or anything , just a nice car with a paint job. I can sand, shoot primer, wet sand but I'm a little scared when it comes to shooting the actual paint. I'm making my son a Ghostbuster car so I'm buying a gallon of white, primer and clear (3 gallons). Then I need a quart of red and black for the logos on the door. so that's 3.5 gallons altogether. at 4:1 mix I'd need a gallon of reducer also, right? Boy, I'm not looking forward to this but I promised my son I'd do it so I'm needing all the help I can get.
