Using a gun?

If so then I would suggest using the Ditzler/PPG corporate blue formula/code.

Think its posted in another thread = I'm away from my books at the moment, To me FEs always appear to be on the deeper side of the formula bit as its mixed should be fine

PPG DAR 13358 Like Jeff I would recommend using DAR/hardner for durability but if you want to go rattle can I would chose Duplicolor 1616 over Plastickote 224 for a big block
