A.P. 'Sandy' Grice writes,
"Automotive paints are quite sensitive to temperatures: use the following
thinners/retarders. If you must paint at higher temps, add an anti-wrinkle
DuLux Thinner Temp Range Centari Thinner Temp Range
#8508 below 65 F #8034 below 70 F
#3812 65-75 F #8022 70-85 F
#3864 70-80 F #8093 above 85 F
#8522 above 80 F
"The DuLux cannot be clear-coated, though the Centari can be protected in
this fashion. DuLux can be mixed for brush application (like for roofs)
rather than spray application, though. DuPont "Corlar" two-part epoxy is
another primer alternative. As it is intended for aircraft, it is only
available in gallon cans, and in grey. Better living through chemistry...
I wasn't trying to sell AB's paint, but only thought the color names
might be of interest. Right you are on being able to buy it anywhere, and
here are the match numbers, courtesy Rovers North. Don't blame me if you go
out and get 10 gallons and it don't match. I got some Dupont acrylic enamel
to paint my fire wall with this number and it doesn't match anything, but
that's just because the thing is so fadded and oxidized. I'm sure these are
as correct as you can get. And a lovley red it is."
