Wow, as a follow up to this thread here are some more spine chilling details. Well I got my second quart of red oxide primer from TCP Global. And pulling the lid off revealed the same ugly serpent hiding inside. Chunky hardened pigment 1/2 way down....
Now the third quart which I was told the lid was removed to check it
and confirmed it was loose to the bottom, is on it's way from California.
There is no reason for this. Personally I will never use TCP Global again for a
paint supply vendor.
I was told by another member they had issues similar to what I'm going through now. Wish I would have searched a bit more before purchase.
Anyway I had already painted my hard parts with a red primer so not waiting anymore, I shot the first coats of the Firethorn orange Base coat yesterday. The results can be seen below.
This paint has a really nice metallic sparkle to it in the sunlight and changes hue in bright light or shade.
The paint is a bit rough but after wet sanding and the clear coat is done it will be smooth.
check out the last image gives you an idea of the look I'm getting....
