Really need help to make a decision on paint manufacture to use.
What would be the rank order? Glasurit, PPG Deltron, RM or any other recommendation.

I used PPG in my last three projects and was very happy with it, they have a few grades that you can choose from, their clear is of very high quality and has no yellow tint, to me that is very important to have the exact color showing.

Using Glasurite classic line, I think its 55 line for solvent based paint, will confirm that colour is right.
I used glasurite base with PPG cermiclear clear.
Seems to be holding up ok so far although its only been out of paint for a month or so.
