Paint question

Since we dont have a section on paint and body work I didnt know where to put this.

I was just curious as to what type of paint you guys use one your vehicles. I need to do a complete respray and I want ti to look decent.
Im looking at the duplicolor paint from advanced auto just because it seems easy and somewhat cheap. My dad does bumper repair and stuff like that as a side job so I have all the proper equiptment.

He uses omni or deltron from napa but its alittle costly for me to do. anything helps.

I use ppg or finishline or dupont. Finishline has a few different levels from cheap to not so cheap. The middle of the road stuff is well priced and lays nice

In ohio im not too sure. Here in Michigan we have GNE paint supply I'm sure there is something like that there. Mixing is all about what temp it is, Humidity stuff like that. I can't remember what mix I used on my last truck but I'm about to paint my new truck so I can tell you in a few weeks but I'm sure you're going to paint prior to that
