I asked my neighbor (Body Shop Owner) to get some paint prices for the Red. Here is what he sent me. (Copy and pasted) (I may need two Gallons to be safe or for future repairs)

 

paint price omni the label you sent    $267.70  @ gallon

 

shopline premium (better omni)         353.70  @ gallon

 

PPG DBC                                            $1306.00  @ gallon  ( holy crap!!)

Whoa!  But do you really need two gallons?  Isn't it usually mixed 50/50 with reducer thus making two gallons out of one?  No point in having $267.70 sitting on the shelf for multiple years and then finding it to be spent when you may possibly need it.

Have you watched my videos? I screw up a lot.  Not sure yet how much to get but I will be using the Shop line. I think I have enough left from doing the firewall I could do the interior of the trunk. Most of that will be covered up anyway.

If you're using PPG shopline, just use DC4000 clear.  It's under $500 a gallon including hardener.  $1300 a gallon for clear is pretty tough.  The base prices are in line.

 

You can get away with a less expensive base if you use a quality clear with good UV protection.  Stick with the same brand base-to-clear.
