In Topic: PRIMER Shootout: Plastikote T-235 vs Dupont Nason 421-24

Visited NAPA the other day. They will not order Plastikote. Duplicolor only.

Contacted Plasikote (Valspar), but Lowes does not have any requests to carry the 'PK' paints.

Finally decided to order a few cans online from Amazon. Will replace the spray-nozzles  or decant the primer (if needed).

I found one location in National City, Ca that carries Plastikote, but it's a 90 mile drive.......TOOOOOOOO far. Amazon is closer and Free shipping.

Hello Ron, Beautiful rebuild of the 68 GTO. Any chance you could post a copy of the instructions sheet for the 68 GTO. I am also in the process of a rebuild. Thank You.

In my search to find Plasti-kote primers (T:235,236,237 and red oxide), i found this old post. If you live in the SoCAL area, Car Quest NO LONGER sells Plasti-Kote paints. New company owns CQ and now they only sell Duplicolor.  I contacted Plasti-Kote and they had no retail referrals. Duplicolor

must be offering all the auto parts stores a penny on the dollar to buy their paints.

Plasti-kote is a great primer and it's a huge loss that it is not available.

thanks for the info. Yes, all sold-out already. I did find one picture on the internet, but it was more of a angled front-to-back view. Need the straight-on side views. Hopefully someone has the model and will post a couple pics. Thank You.
