DuPont sold out and shafted many long time employees after the merger with "another company". I would no use a DuPont refinish product on a dog house after what they did to AMERICAN WORKERS !!!!!!!!

Aside from issue with the chemical company the car is looking real good. Looking forward to see it finished and looking good.

They sold the company to there world wide company. Like all big corporations it's bottom line. They did drop there centire line of acrylic enamel products in the mid 90s. By that time base clear was the standard in the industry. Leaving us that used the products with no alternative top end single stage paint. I saved enough paint, reducer and harder aside to do this car in it. I just didn't think it would take this long to get to it. As for switching brands driving 100 miles for a gal of reducer makes no since to me.
