Recommended Posts

Yes, their paint division is now owned by Wings, Wheels, and Waves and can be reached by www.mcwautomotivefinishes.com or wingswheelswaves@ssnet.com or (330) 830-7755. I bought paint from them earlier this year and got good service from them.

I generally just fill out an order form and mail it off with a check. 3-4 weeks later I get a care package with some paint.

Are MCW metallics large flakes or closer to pearl/in scale look?

I have only ordered solid colors previously.

That's the best part about their paints.

The metallic particles are much closer to scale than most rattle can paints.

Many of their metallics are so fine that it can be difficult to see without close inspection.

The "Cay Coral" paint on this '58 Chevy is metallic, but it's hard to see the individual flakes, but the "sheen" makes it obvious that it is metallic.

I basically only use MCW paints for all of my metallic paint jobs.

that Impala is beautiful, Steve; how did you duplicate the multi-colored seat pattern?

Paint & masking tape. :P

I wish that I had a better photo of the interior, but unfortunately, this is about the best I have.

Yes, you can get rattle cans. Might not be able to for all colors, but they do offer it.

Since the business changed hands, they now offer to put any paint color that you want into a spray can, including custom mixed colors.

The catch is that you have to order 2 cans of anything that they do not already carry in a spray can, & it's not particularly cheap.

Cool, thanks for the info. 

Snail mailed my order for ‘62 Tempest!

That's a nice kit as I just sold one a few months ago.

I’ve had a couple major glue bombs for years and tried unsuccessfully to rejuvenate them. I got a clean built up finally that I’ll strip and redo.
