If you contact them and ask them real nice, they will send you all the color chips of their paint. You will find their color very vibrant.

Go to layitlow forums.. Those guys out in Cali use that junk paint all the time.. Or at least they used to.. Best thing you can do is look into a different line of paint.. Kirker is bottom of the barrel no questions about it.. While others will say its not, it is and that is just the way it is.. Ask any bodyshop if they use it?? Many wont even know what it is

Maybe they know something you don't bondoking. I own a bodyshop/custom shop, and I recommend it.
Don't knock something you know nothing about.

The Kirker paint issue is one that has been bantered back and forth here numerous times. There are those that swear by it and those that swear at it. :roll:
I have not used it personally so I will not enter the fray however I did try Pro Spray for the first time and found the pricing very reasonable and the paint seems to cover great and lay out real nice.
You can contact Chad here: mopar978@yahoo.com and request a quote based on your paint number for comparison.

Well, i have used kirker and can say i agree with bondoking all the way. Of any paint brand i have ever used, and i have used alot of them, kirker is the lowest grade crap out there. If i was painting a trailer, tractor or somethong else that didnt really matter i would have no problem using it but never on something that has to be top notch and look good.
