So I have picked up quarts of the following for the local automotive store: Duplicolor Paint Shop Series ; Grey Primer (BSP100), Clear Coat (BSP300), Performance Red (BSP203), Championship White (BSP201), Midnight Blue (BSP210). Read what they have to say about their own product line here: Duplicolor Paint Shop Finish System
I have decided to use a Revell ’57 Chevy as the guinea pig for this since I’ll have the opportunity to have two distinct colors between sides and the rear quarter panel/trunk. I will use Bare Metal Foil (BMF) on the bright work to break it up. The plan right now on the first pass is that I’ll shoot the Grey Primer in light mist coats at ~12 PSI thinned just a bit more with straight acetone from my Iwata HP-C Plus and will control environment with 72 F @ <; 40% Humidity.
I had little to no issues with crazing as I thought I might and the primer built up nicely. The system being premixed and the fact that these lacquers dry so fast, make for no wait time. I'm still not planning on jumping from color to color like a jack rabbit, but if the primer is any indication of how the rest of the system will work for me, then I've got high hopes.
Granted, a quart can do a lot of cars, but even if I only use the primer in the future…. that will be used up easily. More to come with pics too..
