WTF, can't order paint from Summit
« on: April 19, 2017, 07:13:13 AM »
I was all set to order paint (single stage Urethane) and primer from Summit for my truck. I get to checkout page and see warnings that paint and activator can't be shipped to Connecticut. How fawk stupid is that.

I quickly added paint to a cart at Eastwood and it looks like they can ship, at least there weren't any errors.

Would it make sense that eastwood could ship while summit couldn't? Maybe the paint itself it different enough to allow one to be shipped and one not?

What are my options? Buy local I guess. I really wanted to go inexpensive on the paint since it's not going to be a show vehicle.

I've only ever bought paint local. The local auto parts store will mix it on the spot and because my dad gets so much stuff there they sold us the paint for my Wrangler at cost. That's frustrating that places won't ship it.

there are levels of expensive. The paint for my plymouth cost $1,500 10 years ago. The paint I was going to buy for the truck was just under $400.

The stuff from eastwood is probably low VOC. Man I thought at this point that's the only stuff on the market, guess not. I deal with a local auto body supply place in Colchester. They are good people.

So there are paints with different Voc levels and the special ones with low Voc can be shipped to all 50 but they change the chemical composition of the paint and therefor they charge more for the same thing essentially, the actual paint that Eastwood was selling might have been different brand and therefor less Voc and able to ship where the summit one was not, I had same issue trying to get safety orange for the jeep, go figure it's the one color hd doesn't have they have safety every other color, blue red yellow Blacl white but no orange
