Re: Oil based paints banned in September

The last pint of water based basecoat that I had to buy was Dupont Chromabase. It was $170.00 a pint. PINT! And the color match was ****. I had to blend the whole front of the car to get it to look right.
Regular urethane clearcoat is still available in California. It's about as expensive as it ever was.

I find it fascinating how the values of words change over time. When I first started teaching about the ??? Sands, in about 1980 +/- we received a teaching kit about this marvellous new resource that someday would provide vast amounts of oil (when the price went up enough). The kit came from Syncrude as I remember and the resource was only called 'Tar Sands' even on the little bottle of the stuff that was included.

I suspect that some PR guys got involved 15 or so years ago and did their focus groups and found out that people had more positive feelings about 'oil' than about 'tar' - hence the change and today's reality where is you are for it you call it oil sands and if you are agin it you call it tar sands. BTW, nothing wrong with the word (or substance) tar - has a number of significant uses.

Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Ainia is back in North America for the first time since 2010. Currently in Long Island Sound.

Oops! guess this post is off-topic...Sorry! :-)

Cupper you are correct...the F150's do have their place for the uses that you point out. They and the monster SUVs built on their frames, do not have their place in an urban environment like Toronto where I see them everyday doing 130-149KM on the 5 lane 407 toll highway with one person commuting to work.

They are a conspicuous waste of a non-renewable resource. Until North Americans get off their gas guzzling addiction we will forever be at the mercy of the middle east terrorists, even with the reserves stashed in the sands of northern Alberta, the Arctic and gulf of Mexico. That "kicking of the habit" will never happen in my lifetime because too many believe that it is their right to get somewhere 10 minutes ahead of me, in the largest vehicle possible, while at the same time bitching about the high price of gas.

We all agree that dumping raw sewage overboard is not good for the environment. ( or at least I think most of us agree) Too bad we cannot agree that unnecessarily dumping crap into the air is just as bad.

BTW, I have a bottle of the goopy sand sitting on my Toronto desk courtesy of my geologist brother who worked in Ft Mac for 3 years before he left in disgust. The tar, as he referred to it, ate through one pair of thick leather gloves every week.

Re: Oil based paints banned in September

Some voc paint will still be available but labelled differently.. but grab it fast cause it wont last. Some of the giant buckets will be half price.. find a good place to store a few of these. Commercial grades will still have oil too but under a different acronym for a little while anyways.. sigh
