Single Stage Paint

Selecting a single-stage paint

September 06, 2012

Took my driver's side door in to the local paint guy Pete this morning. They used the camera on the door and the computer said they could actually come closer than nastier paint I was driving to Salinas to get for a better match. Also I guess this stuff should be safer and around/available longer.

Looked good on the computer screen but when they mixed some up it had that familiar mis-matched green cast. So Pete went back and did some hand tweaking and I think they got it pretty close. I think he said he pulled the green and some yellow out. I know Omni is not the high-end but he says it's really decent and I want a single stage I can touch-up and spot paint with. It seems this stuff needs a few coats and/or less reducer (spec - 4-1-2) to cover well. Picked up a pint to try and will report back. I've attached the mix.
