    so, we are going to paint my wifes 92 accord and my 91 accord this spring both the same color. as far as i know we found the color we want to stay with, it is the 2008 civic si blue. we found it for 270.11 for a gallon ready to spray, i didnt know if anyone knew of a possible deal that was better, because if we do both cars that will run basically 600 for base, plus primer, and clear, and help would be great, thanks

    Ready to spray? Whatabout hardener/reducers?

    If you cheap out on paint, not only will it not come out looking its best, BUT it isn't going to last very long.


    If you plan on keeping the car, paint it right.

    we prefer ready to spray, just to make it easy, but if the price is half decent we will do the mixing, the last car we painted we mixed and was just a pain in the ass haha, but i guess either.

    i mix my own paint at my shop ,give me the code and ill look it up see what it costs, but a gallon sprayable doesnt seem like enough unless you spray a cover coat similar color first
