As alot of you guys already know, I'm getting to the point where I'm looking for a painter. I went out and got some quotes today and one of the quotes that I received was 2200. He says that he will guarantee the job for life saying that the paint won't flake off or fade at all. I gave him the PPG paint code for laser red metallic but he told me that he uses "European Paint" and thats why he will guarantee it. Anybody got any info on this stuff? I just heard "Euro" and it mad me think about rice rockets lol. Any info will be appreciated. Thanks.

That might be this stuff called Glasurit. This is very high quality paint, they use it on BMW and Porsches I think.

If it is" Glasurit" Its one of the best top coats there is (in2 pac of course)
just make sure he is using the same quality for the prep work U.coat ,primer and solvents etc.
Iwas in the body shop game for 25 years ,its very good, but only as good as the bloke putting it on and as good as his equipment will allow

If in doubt give it a clout
If at first you don't succeed , find a bigger hammer

It sounds like he is serious about prep work as well. I recently had the car media blasted and the people also primed it. He said he would have to strip it down again and shoot his own primer on it for the guarantee. Is "Glasurit" the brand name or is the type of paint? I'm kinda confused on that. I don't wanna sound stupid when I ask him about this lol. Also, what do you mean by "into pac?" Thanks.

"Glasurit" is a brand name
I didn't make myself clear re 2 Pack. sorry

"2 pack"is a polyurethane paint with the colour (the actual paint) being one part and a catalyst added to the colour to activate the drying process.
2 parts 1 part being paint other part being catalyst hence
" 2 pack"
The paint is usually then backed in a heated spray booth. normally a low bake booth
The paint dries with a very high gloss and requires minmum buffing ,also dries very hard and is resistant to solvent and other chemicals. resistant not imperveous.
Only draw back is that it is a bit more difficult to touch up if chipped etc,

If in doubt give it a clout

Ok, so this is a polyurethane paint. I was under the impression that a base coat/clear coat would be a much better option than a poly setup. What is your opinion on this? Thanks for putting up with all my ?'s ;-)
