    I like my old cars to look like old cars and think single-stage paint helps keep them looking vintage. I've been liking the PPG Concept line of SS paint. Excellent in it's day, might have been the best short of Imron or other exotics. Still excellent SS even if it's largely obsolete.
    PPG has been trying to get folks to switch, partly by just making it stupidly expensive (~$75/pt). Anyway, I've bought a few lots on the secondary market and have pulled out those components which I can use for my projects but I've debating selling the rest or keeping it around to repaint shelving, machine-tools, etc.
    Long story not much longer, if you need any let me know and I'll check if I have it. I can send full quart cans or if you need a particular color I have the microfiche and scale so could mix something up.
    For full quarts or if I already have a partial let's say $60/qt (plus shipping of course) which I think makes it not much more than the cheapest of the urethanes and a lot cheaper than the expensive colors like red and yellow. If I have to look up a color and fire up the scale, break out a clean can, etc. let's say another $10 per mix.
    If the mix uses a couple different things in quantity it might be that 2-3 qts is enough for a Jeep.
    The mix ratio for Concept is: 4parts paint, 2 parts reducer, 1 part hardener so 2 qts of paint makes close to a gallon RTS.

    Not quite comprehensive but here's a list of excess full quarts in front of me:
    DMC 904
    DMC 907
    DMC 906
    DMC 909
    DMC 919
    DMC 923
    DMC 924
    DMC 925
    DMC 926
    DMC 927
    DMC 928
    DMC 932 (2qts)
    DMC 933
    DMC 934
    DMC 935 (2qts)
    DMC 981
    DMC 982
    DMC 985 (gallon)
    DMC 986

    If a base/clear is more your thing, I also have a pile of PPG Deltron/Deltorn 2000 that I'm happy to part with as well for the same price or even a bit less.

    Funny paint story:

    About 6 years ago we closed one of our company stores that sold PPG.

    Couldn’t sell it, couldn’t throw it away, couldn’t donate it.. and it was all good paint...
    Over 150k in inventory cost about 30k to “dispose of” properly..

    by the good grace of a quick real estate transactions the buyer of the property wanted a quick close with all contents “as is”

    I like to think I saved 30k. Booker keeper said we took a 150k write down.

    Then they used it for five years and sold the leftovers to me on Eaby. :)
    Indeed, it's interesting to see how quickly something can shift from the asset to liability column and back again. I don't know if it's an inefficiency built into capitalism or if there are no actual losses but it's a trick of the light as the process is going on that takes care of itself. I do know I gripe about the price of new paint and some of the cost of new paint is the leftovers so I score that where I can to even things out.

    Is there a color chart so I can decode what you have there? I kept finding names, but no pictures.

    Those paints listed are "mixing colors" or bases used with color/quantity formulas to match OEM colors. Most are not very attractive in their base form. They usually need to be mixed with carriers or binders to thin them and make them ready to spray. The only bases I have used are pure black.

    I actually rather like several of the mixing colors straight, the dark reds particularly, but true that usually I mix to taste. One of the thing I love about this stuff is it's all pre-balanced so you can mix any color in any ratio and have usable paint.
    The concept line doesn't need any base added, just reducer and hardener.

    If you do a search for a Deltron tint chart, you can get a sense since the color names are the same.
