Mipa base coat

#1
I have been curious to try this Mipa base coat (From Germany), but I do not know much about it. Has anyone here used it, or know anything about it? A guy I talked to who does use it said the color matches are great, and it's 80.00 for any color per quart. It mixes 2:1, and he says he likes it better than Diamont, and thought it was similar to Glasurite base coat.

I just went another round trying to find paint a customer is using in Australia. There is absolutely no chemistry that is not RoHS compliant anywhere in Europe and now I learn Australia. The US is just catching up. My money is always on the clear protecting your basecoat.

a crappy base of any type makes for a crappy job, period.

From what i am being told it is suppose to be good stuff, like all their other products. I was told they have been importing it into this country for at least 20 years, already. The two guys I have had discussions with swear by it. I would like to find out more info.

I used to buy some Mipa black base coat from a wagon peddler that toured our area for a while. It worked well. I have not seen Mipa in my area in 8 or so years.

I liked Mipa. I looked back and the wagon peddler used to carry it 14-16 years ago. He just had primary colors and not a mixing system. I have been looking at Motobase, but I spoke to a east coast distributor and he says mipa has finally got it distribution act together in the US. I'm meeting with him Monday. It's a 2:1 polyester base coat.
