PPG Omni

Can I get some advice from someone who has used it? How easy is it to spray ? How good is the coverage and how easy is it to buff out mistakes? My truck is dark blue and white.

Re: PPG Omni

Because you are in Canada the Omni sold here is a low VOC version of the Omni sold in the USA. It won't cover very good so you'd be better off buying a top of the line base coat and using a generic clear like 5 Star Euro clear. Or consider a good single stage like BASE UNO.

Re: PPG Omni

Thanks. I was hoping it was okay as Lordco sells it and that would be convenient for me. I
I prefer something where I can get any supplies locally

Re: PPG Omni

White and Peters has a store in Coquitlam would benefit you with very experienced staff and tech support. I pretty know pretty much all the paint distributors in the lower mainland so PM me if you'd like to chat.

Re: PPG Omni

Last summer I used a medium blue single stage Omni from Carlson on a truck of my dads. We would have used a bc/cc but it was a budget build for a truck that was going to be driven and get chips and rust out again in ten years anyway. I found I had to over reduce it to get it to lay flat otherwise it would pile up droplets. I did match reducer and hardener to temp. It covered well. Don't take my advice 100%, I have done a half dozen decent paint jobs not high class but respectable. Kind of self taught to save money kind of guy. I'll try to find some pictures

Re: PPG Omni

This was 2 light coats and a full wet coat. We didn't have to buff any mistakes but the coverage was fine over light primer. I'll try to remember to get a picture of it next time I'm down there now that it's together again. I'll try to get a good shot of the hood in the sun. It turned out pretty good

I used to work for Carlson until recently and they don't sell PPG. I wonder what brand of paint you purchased?

No problem.
Uno is a great hiding single stage. It's what I'm using in my truck.

Re: PPG Omni

Yes. It did want to lay thick. I way over reduced it to get it to lay flat. We were happy with how it came out.

It's in epoxy primer currently but should be seeing some color this spring.

Re: PPG Omni

You can see we didn't fix all the little dents inside the bed near the back. I jambed everything and then we put the truck together, then full paint. I'd say it's a real good paint to mix spray and leave it. Real easy to work with
