Hey, it’s Tony from LearnAutoBodyAndPaint doing another Q&A for our VIP, Mr. Inder. Today’s topic is about Picking Automotive Paint for Your Project.
“Tony, I’m a newbie in painting. The biggest question that I can’t find the answer to is how to choose the color for my motorcycle and my old Toyota car. What branch should I go with? I want to do a two-stage paint. What type of paint should I use? I just got access to your LearnAutoBodyAndPaint VIP today, so I’m still reading and watching videos but haven’t found this info yet. Thanks for the simple and helpful videos and tips. Keep up the good work!”
Paint brands are included in the VIP program. Go to your local auto body supply shop where they sell paints and stuff. Most of them sell Sherwin Williams and Dupont. Shop-Line is the cheaper version of PPG. While Nason iis the cheaper version of Dupont.
I recommend that you go with a well-known brand like PPG brand or Dupont for your clear coats and primers. When it comes to paint, you could also go with the same brands, you can look up Nason or Omni which is cheaper. On the other hand, Deltron is PPG’s higher grade version.
It all depends on your budget. You could spend as high as $800 for paint or as low as $200. I recommend going to your local paint shop so you could look through the color books and decide on your preferred color.
Sometimes I look at new car colors and remember the year, make and model of the car. Then I go to the paint shop and mention this to them and they can pull up that color right away.
You can also request for them to mix the basecoat. It’s usually 1:1 mixture and you’ll have 1 ½ gallon of sprayable material.

1 thought on “Picking Automotive Paint for Your Project 🙄”
I have a 1970 VW camper that I am restoring to its original color of Chianti red. I want to not have to worry about getting it scratched.
I have a Sherwin Williams near me. They offer good, better, & best levels of quality. Would I be ok with saving money & just going with their better line? I’m not trying to win any car shows & since this will be my first time painting, I’m sure I’m make a few mistakes. Thank you
