Default Subaru Paint

I dont know if this is the right thread but i am looking for a good place to get factory replacement paint, not just touch up either but enough for potentially a whole car. cheap is good but not cheap quality. thanks!

Since subaru paint is already pretty ****ty, you might just want to look into getting your color code matched with a premium quality paint.

i agree with the above^^^ the major issue with subaru paint is (what i've heard) poor primer coat.. the primer of course helps the actual color paint stick better... anyone with more info on this please chime in

If you're painting it yourself, buy a quality paint (PPG, Spies-Hecker, etc...). If you're sending it to a body shop, I'd talk to the painter and see what he is used to shooting. When I worked in a body shop, we used Spies-Hecker for 95% of the jobs, and House of Kolor for candy jobs and other custom work.
