The Official End for Lacquer Paint.
« on: April 07, 2018, 04:21:37 PM »
PPG announced on Friday that it's the end of the road for their lacquer paint line. Basically it ended long before this date when they stopped maintaining formulas years ago. RM was the first one to discontinue the paint over 15 years ago. Dupont was right behind RM. I can't believe PPG held on this long.

There is a historical Cadillac tie in with Acrylic Lacquer. Cadillac was the first to offer this new finish Mid year 1956 on the Eldorado's.

Lou,
     One of the few places to still get lacquer is at Auto Color Library.  They have all of the original color codes and formulas and can mix in lacquer, single stage enamel, or base/clear.  Hope to see you all at GN in Texas this summer.  I'll buy you a good, cold Lone Star beer.
Take care,
Ken
