Yes, Northwest Autopaint.
http://www.yellowbot.com/northwest-a...ouston-tx.html

They are PG distributor, they have the expensive and the cheap.

Pints of the expensive around 100, pints of the cheap around 50. Matching colors extra, pearls, kandys, more. They do sell House of color but the minimum they sell is a quart so maybe some other places sell smaller quantities on them.

They sell al the other stuff like reducer, clear coat, hardener, prmer, sand paper, flex, etc etc.

What's the secret ma man? Other than the fact that the cost of the paint is freakin' outrageous?

Haha, that's insane dude. That's close 2-4 times what you would pay for paint from a good supplier in town.

make sure you know what you're getting into if you're planning to paint yourself. If you've never done it before, you might want to practice on your friends bike first

Well the guy ask for an opinion and that is where I get my paint, from the comfort of my home, and I am sorry that it is expensive.

To each his own right, good luck buying your paint

No business relation to Color Rite

sherwin williams does make auto paints, not a bad product. They even already sell a waterborne auto paint, which many other brands don't do. And Water-based paints are becoming the new standard in refinishing industry.

They sure are becoming the standard- it uses twice as much paint to get the same result = $$$$. But with (almost) no VOC, it looks great to the Al Gore groups
