Default dupli-color auto paint?

I just came in from painting and took a break. The best stuff I have run into is PPG acrylic urethane for color and K36 for primer. I read a column in the K Factor done by a guy who owns a paintshop in the next town east of where I live. He went through all the stuff available to him and recommended the PPG stuff for a number of reasons. The K36 primer is better than the K&B stuff used to be - the color is easy to apply and comes out just fantastic. To match any covering you want, take a covered piece to your automotive paint shop and have them computer match it. Covering alone doesn't work with the scanners they use - the light goes through it so you need to bring a covered piece. The downside is you need to buy a pint of paint - catalyst and reducer. You can mix up lots of paint with this - the cost when you compare to spray cans is about the same for the square footage you can paint - there is no comparison though between the finish.

I use it without problems, mainly the primer. It does tend to be a bit heavy for finish coats.
Best of all, it's very convenient.
