Eastwood Quarter Mile Candy Red w/Activator Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from QUATER MILE CANDY RED Using a 1.4 tip on a gravity feed gun found paint flowed and covered nicely at an 80 degree outside temp. Previous attempt to spray at 90 degrees was not as successful. Paint flashed to quickly leaving more than desired orange peel. I dont feel one galllon is enough to spray an entire mid sized car. Wish they sold quarts of the paint. Felt to much orange in paint, although it does almost have the color of a candy dipped apple. The red by itself is nice yet addition of a clear coat after the paint cured and wet sanded with 800 has a deep gloss , Wet sand with 1500 and buff to follow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super product,(as always from Eastwood) I sprayed this with a Sata using a 1,3 tip and it layed down very well, but I had to buy another for my Dale Earnhardt edition Monte Carlo SS, and while it was a different batch it matched up very well, I reduced it 7% and it was perfect. I agree the 3 quarts is a little short for a large car (GM A bodies and such). Actually, it did what I expected and then some. I did clear coat it for the protection because it's my daily driver, but I also wet sanded and polished a small area just to see what the gloss would be like, and the finish was impressive for a single stage. I've paid 3 times as much for far less quality. Been dealing with Eastwood for over 20 years and never had a bad experience, and any time I'm looking for anyhing automotve I look at Easwood first and it always works for me.
