Been trying to find a source for paint locally.
I've only found two. One carries Transtar and appears to carry other things if you order it in.
The other one is Sherwin Williams automotive supply.
After a lot of reading I think I want to go with PPG or maybe Tamco, but have been unable to find a local source that does either.
Is there an online shop that people use here? The store on this site is down.
Or if anyone lives in the Austin Texas area and knows of a local source I'd definitely appreciate it.
Any questions about tools or supplies. Post your compressor/gun questions here.

I would not be concerned about using Transtar at all. They used to have a fully stocked store just down the road from me for a few years. The guys running it knew their stuff and I was sad to see it close. Products were good and easy to troubleshoot.
As far as Tamco you just order that direct..... https://tamcopaint.com/ I get mine direct to my door in about 2 to 3 days. PPG is great stuff but quite a strain on the wallet presently. Sherwin Williams Automotive is decent stuff and again those stores are fairly well stocked.

You could only find two places in Austin TX?
Austin has a Finishmaster and a few other places.
Like Darrel said, Tamco is online only and is a great place to get stuff. I probably use them for 80% of my materials.
I do use a local jobber for when I use PPG's Envirobase, awesome stuff but $$$. Or when I want something color matched.
I use Tamco for most of my epoxies and clears except for the matte clear which I get from "The Coatings Store'
There are some other online places also. Haven't tried Orion or the other unspeakable place, but I haven't really needed to as I am a weekender rookie hobbiest.
Sent by the random thoughts from the voices in my head...
Don't buy from that "unspeakable place" (southern blank)
They are not to be trusted.

I really like Automotive Art MotobaseLV. Sprays and covers great.
I order it from here: http://www.autorodtechnologies.com/chad ... -and-audio and you can get it by the pint, quart or gallon, plus they will mix to match colors if you need them to.
