Napa Paint Question

Hi, I have been sanding my jeep the last few days and am almost ready to get some paint. I think 2 quarts of a single stage paint will be enough. I will also need the hardner and thinner. I am deffinetly going with blue, but I would like a metallic blue and was wondering if anyone has any paint numbers or pics of the blue they used? And how much did you spend if you can remember? thanks Mike

Re: Napa Paint Question

Robbins Auto Parts (a NH chain) has a great selection of paint. They have proabbly 1000 pages of colors. There's a store in Dover, one in Portsmouth, and a couple more in the NH seacost area. Their paint guys are pretty knowledgeable too. If you have time, drop by there and see what you see.

Re: Napa Paint Question

My lacal NAPA only carries martin seymor(sp?) paint. It SUX! [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] Stay away from that stuff. I have used it several times and always with less than desired results. [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] Maybe yours carrys better brands. My choice for single stage is dupont centari for something like a jeep. It's strong and looks nice. Next step up the ladder is imron. But it's a lot more cash.
So save some headaches and get at least a decent paint to start with.

I have this on a 57 Chevy and it's very hard paint, rock chips very easy because of this. Paid way to much for that to happen [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]. Wouldn't be so bad but it is the 95 Corvette Teal color and shows chips badly.
