Re: No More Hobby Paints for Sale in CA???

Most automotive paints have already been reformulated. Find a good
automotive paint store. They will normally help and can match the paint to
the covering. From my experience, we in CA are not losing much without
Lustrekote. It was hard to apply a as easily as most spray paints. The
politics are another matter and maybe the CA politicians should be labeled
as hazardous to your health.
