Re: Any luck with paint from tcp?

TCP has a vast collection of paint chip books also so they can mix up anything. I would suggest you keep records of the mix formula, as they have on occasion changed some formulas. I had to go back...

Re: A question for old guys

Re: Any luck with paint from tcp?

I used TCP paint on my 29RPU. I'm very happy with it. I've used their polyester and epoxy primers as well as their acrylic urethane. I encountered no drawbacks whatsoever. I get a lot of compliments...
