Anyone ever use any of their primers or clears? What is your feedback or suggestions?

I am putting together my paint budget

I asked around about that stuff, I also saw an episode on tv that used the single stage paint and it turned out really bad. So I started asking about the summit brand paints and got some great reviews and also saw it used on an episode of trucks with great results.

So I will most likely go with summing base/clear unless my local jobber wants to give me a price break.

the summit stuff is just relabeled UPOL products, if that helps you getting your price break.

Their Diamond Clear is the only one I have used that does not yellow when heated. Like on an intake manifold.
