Not a bad price, but a lot of people will say "OMG! to cheap!" I went cheap as a test and like the results, in some cases better then the high price paints.

I just shot my engine bay about a month ago with TCP Global Restoration Shop Single Stage Urethane. I believe this paint is made by a major company, but sold with a private label. The results of the engine bay came out wonderful and very easy paint to work with. After the test shoot of the engine bay, Now I am thinking about shooting the outside with there Restoration Shop basecoat.

Just to give you some ideas what I spent for primer and paint :

Kustom shop Black DTM Epoxy Prime/Sealr-Kt 2.1 VOC Makes 1+1/2 gallons Your Price: 114.95 (KT) (I have used this primer on other projects)

1 Gallon Kit of BLACK DTM (Direct to Metal) EPOXY PRIMER SURFACER & SEALER. KIT INCLUDES:
1 Gallon of KEP506 BLACK DTM EPOXY PRIMER,
2 Quarts of KEP502 DTM PRIMER hardern

The Restoration Shop Single Stage Urethane cost me $119 for there kit.

Kit included :

1-Gallon Urethane Color
1-Quart Urethane Hardener
5-EA Quality 190 Micron Nylon Automotive Strainers
5-EA Wooden Paint Mixing Sticks
No Reducer Required (Optional)

I believe I will be buying there basecoat for the outside, it is priced out and includes :

URETHANE BASECOAT 1-GALLON KIT Your Price: 239.95 (KT)
1-Gallon Low VOC Urethane Basecoat Color
1-Gallon Urethane Reducer of Your Choice
1-Gallon KC210 Custom Shop Urethane Clear
1-Quart KH212 Overall Urethane Hardener
5-EA Quality 190 Micron Nylon Auto Strainers
5-EA Wooden Paint Mixing Sticks

Now for some pics :






Primer/sealer done :



One Coat :


Two Coat :



Prep was as followed :

120 & 320grit orb sander on some of the rust/rough spots, Used 3M red scuff pad everywhere else. 2300psi pressure washer with dish soap, Than 3M red scuff with lacquer thinner, this took down the original basecoat down to old primer in most spots, it also helped removed wax , oil and greases. Then pressure washed again and once dryed, final lacquer thinner wipe down with clean rags and then used a Grease and wax remover all over with clean rags.

I'd recommend using your local paint and body supply shop. You might pay a little more, but those guys will be an invaluable resource in the long run. They know a lot, and can help you make good decisions, as well as putting you in touch with the right local suppliers for other items.

Jakecs is ready to make a name for oneself
I've only ever used my local shop but I will say that I wish I wouldn't have. Although I'm proud of how my paint job was, the quality of the paint was sub-par, even for single stage enamel.

So with that, I actually wouldn't mind trying something different next time.

This is what I discovered while removing the rubber door trim. Some type of body filler it seems? All I know is that it's going to take more than clear coat removal to fix this =/
