Exclamation Sherwin Williams auto Paint any good?

I found a body shop that I like, but they use Sherwin Williams paint. Most shops I know of use PPG, and I know PPG is good stuff.

Should I be happy, or worried about the SW brand paint?

I'd be more concerned if it was something I'd never heard of before. Sherwin Williams mixes a little bit of paint, so I would feel fairly comfortable. Does the shop warranty their work. Is there any type of satisfaction guarantee?

I know Sherwin Williams Is used on alot of military equipment. If that has any bearing on the subject.
The military don't like stuff to shiney though.

Yes, He fully guarantees all of his work.

I called a few shops and talked to this guy and when I hung up I knew I wanted to go there. He knew his stuff, he was the owner and the painter...so he obviously has some experience.

I can't wait to get all this stuff painted and installed...it will be a whole new car when I am done

Thanks for the help guys!

I couldent agree more, i bought some touch up paint for my girlfriends car at napa one day an i opened it an it was COMPLETELY dry, i pulled half the brissles off the little brush trying to pull it out of the dry paint. Will NEVER buy paint at napa again, i perfur autozone, for almost everything car related.

As far as paint goes, I can only say good things about dupla-color. By FAR the best spray paint i have ever used.
