the duplicolor? as in lacquer? yeah, no. Find a real auto body supply store, unless this is a temporary paint job.

Summit has some automotive paint that a friend of mine used. It turned out awesome. I believe it was summit brand and comes as a kit.

I used the Summit paint and it is good stuff. Spraying the single stage metallic without getting mottling was tough, but it was also my first paint job. Someone who knows how to paint could do a better job I'm sure. I would recommend their solid colors for any idiot like me though!

dont remember what brand its $22 a quart but it looks like basecoat until you clear it. The clear they sell at the zone was worthless though. We used Ureathane clear and it came out great. If we had better conditions it woulda been perfect but the paint itself is really good.

hmmmm, I will have to check out the AutoZone here in town to see if they carry it.
I know the DupliColor is $22 a pint at O'Rielly's.

Do you know if they AutoZone paint is offered in Hugger Orange??
