I have used the Ful-thane ureathane on my '46 Panel. First time I've ever painted a vehicle. Used HVLP, layed down nice, only had two runs in the whole job(lucky). I've gotten many compliments about the paint. Everyone tells me it looks great and can not belive it's a single stage paint job. I even got a little artsy and did a flame job on the headlight cans for my daughters. I say use it but I'm not a painter either.

Another paint system that uses all the PPG paint formulas is the Matrix Systems Automotive Finishes made in Walled Lake, Michigan. The Matrix paints are compatible with all the PPG products and are less than 2/3's the cost.

34-35 trucks are the greatest

I mix nason and dupont at work. Dupont has a better selection of pearls and will match alot better on repair jobs. There is not many colors that you can mix in dupont that you can't mix in nason. Mostly just tri-coats. For an overall job I would go with ful-thane or nason base clear. Just my opinion. That is what I'm going to paint my truck with. As for Chromapremier I have never mixed it nor had any ever ask for it.

I have done 2 complete paint jobs with Nason base/clear they came out great and are holding up well. as said they are Dupont products. the only drawback is there is only one formula for each color, no alternates. so they are fine for a total repaint but are not good for repair work. I have found nason clear to be better than chroma clear at about half the price. I have pics of the jobs if you want them. good luck

I've used the Nason base on two trucks but went with the DuPont clear. Figured the DuPont clear might give me an edge over the UV exposure we get on a daily basis. However, it was just a gut feeling about the clear....if the Nason clear "works" as well as the base coat, I think it would be a great product option at a more reasonable cost. Of course, that's just my opinion.

The nason clear is dupont clear. Just an older formula. Dupont changed the formula and so they started putting the old formula in the nason cans. In fact they just released a new nason clear that is said to be better than an off brand should be. I can't remember the number right off hand but keep an eye out for it. As said before Chromabase is better for spot repairs because you can have up to 6 different alternates listed in colornet but they also have some hidden in there that are not listed. For an overall paint job nason is the way to go. I have sold chrombase for over $130 a quart versus $30 a quart for nason.
