    Sweetolbob Omni is still available I use it a lot for a cheap paint. Trick with their single stage is don't thin it out much and don't lay it down to wet or heavy or it will hit the floor. Other than that I like it. Still miss the old heavy bodied paints of yesterday but they didn't hold up as good. I may have to try some of this restoration shop stuff on something.

          Mark,

          I am very glad the Restoration Shop paint worked well for you. That is what I am going with on my 1955 sedan. The paint matched the paint chip perfectly. I am also going with the acrylic urethane single stage.

Try 1965 or 1966 and you'll see Plymouth, Peugeot, Volkswagen, etc. They even show Simca and Wolseley, for crying out loud, but Studebaker? Nope. Forget it, too weird, too esoteric - never heard of 'em making cars after 1964.

                  This is not the only company that stops Studebaker paint colors at 1964. I cannot find Laurentine Green for my '65 Cruiser.
