I’ve seen varied reviews on forums about Transtar paint. It’s so hard to trust anything anybody says (lots of ppl just repeat opinions they read somewhere). Curious if anyone here has experience with it. I want to avoid setting myself up for failure by using the wrong material.
I chose Transtar because the local supplier is 10 minutes away and they are really really helpful for newbies. When I painted my friends wing they took the time to tell me how to sand, set me up with the right primer, color, and clear. Just really welcoming to a new guy that was only spending $150 in material. I got a good result with it but I don’t have anything to compare it to.
On forums people talk about it being a cheap paint. It doesn’t seem that way to me, primer, color, and clear will cost about $1k so it’s definitely not cheap like other stuff.
I already bought the primer but want to know if it’s a mistake continuing on with their color and clear.
Things I’ve read online:
- The clear flows easier than PPG
- The clear dries smoother than PPG and has less orange peel
- People really like the primer (I don’t know why)
- People question the longevity of the paint / other say they’ve painted with it for years and had no warranty issues
