The paints John used for this project are Debeer/Valspar Paint Products he got from Gateway Coatings and Supply. They are urethane paints mixed with a hardener rated for a non-baked booth at a temperature range of 64 to 95 degrees fahrenheit, perfect for his location. When asked why John uses these products he said, "They are cost-effective urethanes with a full spectrum of colors for custom and collision refinishing." After mixing up the custom orange, John dumped it in his Sata Jet 3000 HVLP gun with a 1.3 tip, set his air pressure to 29psi and adjusted his fan down. John focuses his spray to just the outer stripe and lays down two coats of the orange.
