PPG - the have the Vibrance Collection- can get it most every where..

Dupont - the makers of the most used oem stock colors like viper red

Valspar - the makers of debeers paint most body use them as well.. NOTE you will notice that on the site you will see link heading towards house of kolor paints they are the owners and bought the right to the paint but they were not the inverters

House of Kolor - The first maker to introduce the "candy" lines of paint. lots of choices and you can get it in small amounts

Auto Air Colors- the makers of a water based painting system

Alsa corp - the makers of the true off the wall paints from the chrome , to ghost chrome , hyper color paints" remember the 80's body glove shirts" way to much to list but it worth to check into

Like I stated in another post you can check online for the best deals but beware of where you shop to get your goods.

BASF has a great line fo custom colors in candies, pearls and flakes. Comparable to HOK but easier system to use and better price. IMHO

Nice list, but you forgot(or deliberately left out) http://www.martinsenour-autopaint.com/

They have a new line called planet color. http://www.martinsenour-autopaint.co...net-Color.aspx

I hear it's a pretty nice system.

I manage and work at a NAPA store so I had to throw that in there.

Keep providing links and I'll keep adding them to Kustom's initial list so they're all easily found at the top of the thread.
