I don't want to do krylon.
Summit has some but 79$ is a lot more than paint I've seen elsewhere that came with hardener/reducer.

I keep seeing gillespie coatings mentioned on old posts but can't find a still active source.

Does primer need to be mixed or does it come ready to spray?
How do you choose all of this stuff when there's so many damn options? Urethane primer, self etching, epoxy, primer with catalyst.
What the crap I just want to spray my jeep. Is there a paint junk selection tool or flow chart somewhere.
Maybe I "better get maaco"....

I feel slightly less retarded after reading this.

This should be all I need aside from sanding and masking right? I don't really care about "fill" I just want my paint to stick.

www.armyjeepparts.net 215-269-5014 ask for George.

With Gillespie you need to use Synthetic enamel reducer, available at NAPA.

There's a paint section on the above website. With paint you have regular shipping charge in addition to a Haz-Mat charge.

Thanks, I read urethane is more durable though.
I also read that Gillespie's "sandust" isn't the same color so I might aswell use summit's.
