DUPLICOLOR PAINT STORE

Does anyone have any experience with this paint? It's REAL tempting at $22/qt to use this to paint the bike. I won't rattle can it, but the budget really just won't hold up to House of Kolor either. I'm used to acrylic enamel, not lacquer. Any thoughts?

I have heard of a few who have used it. They said if applied right it looks pretty good.

From what I understand lacquer is a softer paint and would not be as durable as others. But I could be wrong

I used the duplicolor paint before and it was ok. The base coats are good with a easy flow, but the clear coat is not that great. It did not give as much of a shine as I thought it would. I used a aftermarket clear that only used a hardner for my clear. It was only a few bucks more, bit I got that shine I was looking for.

The one thing that I think I remember from way back is that you have to buff lacquer. You won't get a mirror finish straight out of the gun. I have every intention of buffing out and polishing the clear coat.
