    sources for Nelson paint

    Are there any other places you can buy Nelson paint besides direct from John Desilets? I cannot get an order filled after numerous emails and a phone call ? I am about ready to file for a refund though pay pal and hope there is another hobby shop or retailer that I can buy the paint from?

    Do you really need to use Nelson finish, I mean if it is that much hassle to get, the hell with them, there are allot of other very good systems out there. Just saying.

    RE: sources for Nelson paint

    I ordered some Nelson clear and other than needing to call because the web site was not functioning I had no problems. My clear coat arrived within a week. He has moved to Wa state so perhaps the move caused some delay.

    RE: sources for Nelson paint

    John was more than helpful with me. I sent a color sample and I had paint within the week of him receiving the sample. He even called me when I had questions about the application and such. The paint is much different to work with, but it is an accpetable alternative to solvent based epoxies and urethanes.

    ORIGINAL: carrellh

    Nelson paint is System Three brand, repackaged in small quantities.
    ...and mixed to match Monokote and Ultrakote which System 3 does not do. Their clear and cross-linker oughta work fine, tho'...

    Incidentally, their cross-linker will also work with water-based poly-u (like Min-Wax) to make it glow fuel proof. Must be very similar stuff...

    RE: sources for Nelson paint

    Curt,

    Could you give a little more info about the minwax poly and cross linker. The mixing ratio and test conducted to show it's fuel proof/resistant. I've used poly for years with glass and silkspan as an substrate but not for a topcoat.

    Thanks,

    Rick

    RE: sources for Nelson paint

    Top Coat cross linker is 8 drops per ounce of paint,, a couple extra drops here or there doesn't hurt,
    I've flown this on 20% nitro,, tested with 30% car fuel also, stayed rock hard
