Units are "PPG weights", not grams, ounces or anything standard that I know of. Any PPG shop will know what they are.

Reduce at 1:1.5 ratio with PPG DRR1185 reducer for spraying. (1 part paint, 1.5 parts reducer). Don't reduce any more paint than you plan to use at one time. Once reduced, the paint is only good for a couple of days.

This is a basecoat/clearcoat system. Clearcoat w/ PPG Omni MC260 clear with MH167 hardener (slow drying), or MH168 hardener (fast drying). Slow drying produces a softer finish that is easier to color sand. Your painter will know best.

Normal clearcoat is glossy, so if you want that "original" semi/low gloss look, use PPG DX685 gloss reducer.

Unfortunately, this formula is ONLY good for PPG Deltron DBU series paint. It will not work for other makes or types of paint. Sorry about that, but it's what my painter uses.
