    Sg100 all day.

    A few months ago I thought I was smart and tried to save a few dollars by using Matrix intercoat since it was only $20 a quart. Gtfo, that shit gave me nothing but problems. I'm sure it works great for normal use, but for what I was using it for, multi-layer patterns, it sucked. It peeled on me constantly when I taped over it. And no I didn't fuck up my prep, I do all my artwork over 320 scratches.

    SG100 is like $100 a gallon online, that's all I fucks with now.
    I don't apologize. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am.

    there is no comparison to SG100 house of kolor. I go through at least a gallon a month and it holds up great. I'm sure the other brands work good , but for the quality, SG100 is a bargain and I pay $125 a gallon. We do candy graphics, airbrushing, color matching, pearl graphics, and flake. I don't recommend using it for more than 5 coats. It will split and crack over that, but so will anything else that isn't catalyzed.

    I REALLY SUGGEST ALL OFF U TO TRY USING BASE COAT WITH NO TONER, ASK UR PAINT SHOPS N THEY'LL MIX U UP A BATCH MAKE SURE ITS NOT CATALYZED(OMNI,PPG,SHOPLINE,OMNI-PLUS, DONT USE DIAMONT,NASON, OR ANYTHING THAT REQUIRES U TO USE ANYTHING ELSE TO REDUCE IT BUT REDUCER. U CAN SHOOT AS MANY COATS N IT WON'T CRACK.THINK ABOUT IT, ITS LIKE USING PAINTS THAT ARE TRANSPARENT CAUSE OFF COLOR IT WILL TAKE A SHIT LOAD OF PAINT TO GET IT TO COVER RIGHT. IF U HAVE ANY PROBLEMS LET ME KNOW, TRY IT ON A FENDER OR SOMETHING. RAN INTO AN OLD PAINTER THAT WORKED IN PAINT SHOP N I HIT HIM UP AND ASKED HOW COME HE DIDN'T TELL ME ABOUT THIS SHIT, HE WAS HOLDING OUT CAUSE HE WAS WORKING MORE IN OXNARD N DIDNT WANT TO TELL ANY BODY IN SANTA BARBARA, THEN I ASKED MY HOMIE THAT WORKS WITH HIM N HE TOLD ME HE DIDNT EVEN KNOW ABOUT THAT N THAT THE OTHER FOOL NEVER TOLD HIM SO NOW I JUST GO BY AND THEY MIX WHAT EVER AMOUNT. THE SHIT I HAVE TO DO TO GET THE SECRECTS!!!!!!!!!
