How much paint (primer, base, clear and reducer) did you buy for your work?
I am terribly sorry. I completely overlooked this question.
I purchase my paint supplies from a local automotive paint supply house. Ogden Auto Paint & Glass in Ogden, UT but any PPG dealer will have the same products.
I used DPLF48 epoxy primer/sealer. I had a partial gallon and didn't use it all.
Paint I used a quart of gray, less than a pint of the black and about a half gallon of the sandstone. The paint colors were Diamont urethane from RM paints. Mainly because that is what Monaco used and I couldn't cross it over exactly to PPG and didn't want to risk a mis-matched color. I got the paint mixing formula directly from Monaco back in 2007 when I purchased the coach and just used that formula and had a local RM dealer mix it up.
For clearcoat I used PPG DC2021 urethane. It is a high solids clear and I used DT870 reducer and DCX61 catalyst. I also reduce the last coach of clear an extra 10% with DT895 reducer. This is a slower reducer and really makes the last coat lay down flat and orange peel free, well for the most part anyway.
I hope that helps, again, sorry for the late response, I completely missed this post.
