Re: Which brand of paint do I use?

i used 2 pac so i cant help with the paint brand but the one tip i can give you for a home jobbie is to 'wet' the inside of your shed and start spraying while it is still damp... Stops alot of the dust and shi*t from floating around

Re: Which brand of paint do I use?

As a suggestion, try 'the Paint Professionals" 26 Peninsula Blvd Seaford. They were excellent a couple of years ago, very good quality 2 paks and acrylics, and great color matches, but I can't qualify what they're like now.

Cheers!
