Careful..it will dieback using reducer in 720. Mix it 4:1. You shouldn't need it with a decent gun and conditions with that particular clear. I know from experience.

dont' they make a flow enhancer for this product so there no guesswork on types of reducers or if your local paint shop does not carry it?

Priced it a couple weeks ago here. 65-66 bucks a kit tax included. 100 bucks a gal kit sounds like internet pricing.

NAPA doesn't give a jobber price unless you do over $5K in materials a month (at my jobber), I'm just a hobbyist right now. NAPA charges full retail plus some, in my area. If I drive 80 miles to the valley, I can save considerably but I have to make it worth my while buying lots of material. It definitely pays to shop around. :)
