Dupli-color

Post by patzdelsol on January 18th 2011, 5:07 pm

Anyone ever try the "paint Shop" from Dupli-color?

Either rolled or sprayed.

I bought a 1966 mustang that was painted with this stuff and I need to replace a quarter panel. So I'm thinking I'll use it to paint the new quarter.

First off...welcome to the forum....
From what I have read on line it's decent paint. No mixing required, right from the can to the gun. It has lacquar type properties, meaning quick dry time, wetsands easy, easy to buff. Not sure how durable it is and it's priced right. What color is on the car?

Post some pics of your 66 please.

paint doesn't look bad but you can tell it was done quickly and just to sell the car.

this the only pic on my phone
If it works out ok I may repaint my truck with it.

Famous self pealing paint.
At least it matches the wifes pealing paint

I was planning on it but if the dupli-color works out ok I may spray.
I have a friend in the mustang club that is going to help me replace the quarter and spray the paint. If all goes well and the cost isn't too much I may just spray.

I restored a 66 Stang for my cousin about 10 years ago. It was suppose to be just a re-paint. The car looked really straight. What a surprise when I started to strip off the paint. Both rears had a ton of glass in them, same with the front fenders. I ended up welding on both rears, a floor pan, part of the trunk pan and patching the doors and rockers. The reproduction fenders and quarters actually fit good.

replaced the quarter and it's up to primer now. Still don't know if I want to try and roll the duplicolor stuff or not.

Great job on the quarter. Spot weld drilling is always a joy....
Your son looks like he's really getting into it.
