Twalker, where did you get the SEM products? I'll be going through London on Monday, might pick them up.

I order them all the time from a local Car Quest....Haven't came across anybody that keeps it on the shelf. :2cents:

Hey blownmotor, as anlauto said I haven't seen these in a retail outlet yet.  Bought mine from Eastwood - I buy a fair amount from them as their shipping to canada is reasonable.  Let me know if I can help more.

Go there with the product numbers if you can. You can get them from the above posted picture (if it's black you want) :2thumbs:

Maybe I'll try car quest too when I need more, might be cheaper with no shipping fee...

Well I never said it would be cheaper :smilielol:

I just dug out an invoice for SEM 15103 Super White Spray bombs dated 09/09/13
Keep in mind I have an account with every jobber in town EXCEPT Car Quest (not sure why)

They have the "List Price" as $24.70/can, my price was $19.02/can, plus 13% HST of course...  :stomp:

So a total of $21.49/can for paint.

Not sure where Eastwood is for price plus shipping /taxes etc... :dunno:

I just bought 3 cans from Summit Racing.  $9.75 a can.   :2thumbs:
1970 Plymouth 'Cuda.  Matching numbers 440 U Code, 4 speed pistol grip, Rallye dash, AM 8 Track, Shaker hood, 15 inch rallye wheels, Dana 60 4.10, Super Track Pak.  One of 134 - 440 "U" coupes codes built in 1970 and one of 100 - 440 Super Track Paks built in 1970.

(Edited 8-1-17)

"usraptr" = United States raptor - bird of prey = United States Bald Eagle.  FYI, somebody else thought of it first so I had to drop the "O" in raptor.

How much was shipping it to Canada ? That's where the problem lies....I don't think Summit will ship paint outside the USA...

hey guys, sorry for the late response - here is a copy of my receipt from eastwood - so you can compare to the prices/shipping from Car Quest.  Hope this helps, cheers.

I used almost 3 cans to do the kick panels, door panels, rear panels.  Two-three coats.
