I painted a sample yesterday and sent it off to them, It is a metalic for sure and may have some pearl in it too.

From my reaserch it seems merc must fill them themselves. The package from duplicolor only includes propellent and solvent. They buy a machine that injects the color pigments in the can that is allrerady pre-charged. Yes they had to pay for the machine but $21.50 (From BAM) a can is robbery.

From what I have seen I can get them significantly cheaper and sell them for $10.00 or so and still make a couple of bucks each to cover my expenses. A win / win for everybody that wants some.

We paint our engines with Imron 333 series industrial coatings...its the same thing merc uses. Our cost is 34$ a gal plus you need a qt of activator and a cup of accelerator. You can match the color easily...its a stock blue from the imron chart.
