I'm now in the process of switching over to the Duplicolor brand. The last 2 cans of Plasticote primer/filler clogged up on me. I complained to Plasticote and they sent me a check to cover the cost of 1 can. The 3rd can clogged up too, so I sent Plasticote another email telling them how unhappy I was with their product and will be switching to Duplicolor unless they do something positive. No word in over 3 weeks. It's only a 5 mile ride to Advanced Auto Parts for Duplicolor. No Taco Bell on the way though.

I just returned from a nearly 2-hour search of various paint retailers all over Sacramento in search of ANYONE carrying Plasti-cote sandable primer. NO LUCK. I checked online and it reported that Pep Boys, Target, Michaels and Sears all carried the product but after visiting each of these, I found that none of them do, (and in two cases, never did.)
Anybody know of a retailer carrying Plast-cote? I know there are substitutes, but this has been my 'go-to' product and I'd like to continue with it if at all possible.

Thanks, Danny, a Google search reveals 3 Carquest stores in Sacramento, I'll check it out tomorrow. Appreciate the heads up.
I feel your pain Mike. It has always been my go to primer but everyone quit carrying it around here. But I recently discovered that all Carquest auto parts stores carry it !! I found one within 30 miles of me and called and they had it. I've made several trips there and loaded up on it and they restock it !! Don't know if you have any of those around you but check around and see. I've also found it online before to order, but minumum orders and shipping charges stopped me in my tracks for that. Good luck.

Amazon, I got all the colors. Price plus shipping was significantly lower than when I had the ( now defunct ) Car Quest store order for me.
Wow, that store must of had a hell of a mark up on the primer, I just checked, it was going to cost me $14 to buy a can from amazon, vs. the $10 at the car quest store
