I do my own painting, and minor body work. Here in California with all of their stupid EPA rules, they have outlawed the old lacquer glazing putty. I don't care what the brand is, or whether it is grey, green, or red, I just want to be able to buy the old fashioned stuff. Is it available in other states, or has it been outlawed in the entire country? I'd even buy a used tube if anyone has one!
It is on the shelf here. Let me know I can send some. We have PPG and Dupont brands handy in local stores.
Showing my dumbness...but...
I 'thought that Cali-funny just prohibits the over the counter sale of things...
That they have yet to zing internet sales? (I could be wrong on that)
Amazon.com has the Evercoat 403 Red and their site says they ship ground to all the lower 48
You can still purchase in Georgia. For now anyway. Tim
Nitrostan (red) is very good.
Psst! We buy lots of things from Amazon because it is no longer available in Califunny. Sometimes they do notify us that something cannot be shipped to here. Usually, it just shows up a couple days later.
Me, skulking back into the shadows of sanity in an insane place. Most of the PC mandates around here do more harm to the environment than what they are forcing change against ever did.
I asked for Nitostan at the auto body supply place here in Florida and the kid behind the counter looked at me as If I had 2 heads. He said he had never heard of it. Another older guy they called over knew what it was but said no one uses it anymore because there are much better products on the market today. I'd like to know what they are or were they just giving me a line because they don't carry it. Should I be using something else and if so what?
Yes, there are two-part glazing putties that don't shrink like the Lacquer ones do.
However, if you want a small amount, go to a hobby store and get "Squadron Green" glazing putty, same old thing, but green color.
Val, ask for a "kombi" putty. It's slang for "combination". Pronto is a common brand and it's good stuff. Get Sikkens brand "kombifiller" if you can find a store that carries Akzo-Nobel products. It's smoother and has a little longer work time. They are simple one-part air dry technology and have a multitude of uses.
Larry, I got you some when you asked me about it. I just haven't sent it yet. I will do so tomorrow.
Thanks Walter. I will see if I can get it here or on the internet!
eastwood would not ship me certain products due to ma voc laws. I called speedway in Nebraska whom prob never heard of Massachusetts and they shipped me whatever I wanted Check and see if out of state places have what you want. Or just have a model t friend bend the law for you. But really these laws get all bent out of shape about a quart of filler here or there? If they only knew about the ten gallons of gas my rolled jeep spilled in the woods!
Larry I'm live in Nevada it's availible here drop a note I can be a partner in crime
