    Du Pont solvent based paint - help

    Anyone know where I can get DuPont solvent based paint off their Hot Hues scheme - had a fright when my paint supplier told me its all water based now, want some just in case?

    CoolSolvent based paint

    Cellulose and 2k solvent based paint is still around,don't know about Du pont brand but if you check out ebay its still possible to buy supplies [but probably not for long]. The new regulations state it is OK for spraying machinery and old cars [not sure how old they have to be,probably 60s and older?] The problem is that now the repair trade are forced to go water based whether they want to or not the suppliers and manufacturers will loose interest in what will be a small specialist sector. My advice is buy now and store, thats what i'm doing. Looks like the tree huggers and global warming cry babies have f**ked it up again. Never mind can still burn rubber in my 'bird and I love the smell of Napalm in the morning...

    Jawel Paints in Wolverhampton have a mail order service & prices are good, but remember that paint has a shelf life.

    Paint

    I`ve been clearing the garage out of some 47 years accumulation. the floor needs to come up and a new base and concrete, in among dozens of part tins of paint are ludlow green, (ford anglia) late 50s or early 60s,spruce green ( Mk 1 cortina estate) storm grey 65 Ha viva, they were all soluble and i am sure would be ok to use. some have to be 40 years +,also arizona gold, cortina Mk 3 ford tawney metallic No2, the list of 40 year old stuff almost endless. buy it and store it, what about thinners?? and I wouldnt bring it back from America on a plane !! Highly inflammable. boy will they love you if you get caught

    A good tip i learn't years ago is to store paint tins upside down.

    Being in the restoration trade and doing all the paintwork at my place,we have had to go over to waterbased,its not a great problem painting wise but weve had issues with them being able to match original colours,I did a car about 12 months ago which was a dark blue green,and had one hell of a job getting coverage on it,very see through,found out later its mixed with transparent,pain in the a**e.
    and of course they dont stock enough tinters in 2K any more so we can only get 1 litres mixed up.

    Also,waterbased its supposed to cut down on solvents and help the enviroment,still got to whack a 2K lacquer over it!! thats no different in doing it a straight 2K colour!

    Your right Graham, tried it myself and wasn't impressed, as you say still has to be overcoated with 2 pack lacquer so can't really see the difference.
