Paint for the bus??? TCP

Was seeing if anyone has used tcp global for paint supplies. Read a few bad reviews but they seemed petty over spray paint. Buying enough bulk paint for the bus is pricey and I am trying to keep paint under $1500 for base clear. May do something crazy with colors but dont know how will look on a bus.

Hey.. I haven't used tcp.. I'm getting the paint from our local jobber here at work.. .limco.. . BASF product.. I was thinking base clear as well. Then decided to go with single stage.. Made from limco.. The stuff is amazing and super Shiney when you add 10 percent of clear in the mix..two wet coats like you would spray clear.. Covers very nicely.. I would recommend using an epoxy primer.. I'm using the Limco LP20.. You can top coat it in about an hour after application. It will fill 180 grit made from a DA... I've actually filled 80 grit on my front bumper I painted.. . For. Some reason. I can't add photos.. If Interested I can direct you to a YouTube video I did using the products I've listed.. So you can see the results.. Let me know..

Looks like the stuff works great. Ah the joys of a paint booth. While I have access to a small booth no one I know has a bus paint booth.

I used Limco on the inside and under the hood on my toad. It's been 5 years and both still look Perfect. My only caution is that Limco is open longer than some paints and therefore somewhat like fly paper. The price was right and I'd use it again all things considered. Jack
