    Has anyone used products from Prospray or Valspar (automotive grade) to paint their car? That's all this body shop supply place carries. I can't afford $500 a gallon PPG sold at another place.What about shopline paints? Thanks.

    I've used Valspar a bunch through the years. I really like it. The clear generally flows nicely

    Look around. For example, Sikkens, big name big dollar has a "generic" called Wanda. Perhaps PPG or someone else has an off brand they sell under their banner? Keep trying, you'll find one.

    I've been using PPG for 26 years. Shopline has good clear, but I wouldn't use their basecoat if it has metallic in it. If it's a solid color, Shopline would be fine. Shopline is the same thing as Omni, with a different label, but it's all made by PPG.

    What color are you going with? If it's available to me I can get it to you for half the cost. Just wanted to let you know.

    hi guys,
    I'm wondering if anyone here have or know where I can locate a wiring digram
    for a 1975 plymouth duster,just recently replaced the 318 to a 360 and the wiring was mess ,and I would like to rewire from the inside to under the hood.
    Also I have a issue with starting the unit,i replaced the starter as well as the
    battery /starter wire and I must have a MIA because I can only start it with a
    screw driver across the solenoid ,don't know if a fuse is blown or a wire is
    missing,,,
    Thanks
