Default Duplicolor DE1617 Spray Paint (Ford Green)

For those who use this color paint for your touch-ups and re-paints Walmart online has a 6 can box for a really good price... limited quantities however.

Walt,
Thanks for the link to the paint. I picked up some for some of my projects, if I ever get to them.

Thanks for the link.

I think I might have grabbed the last in stock - it says no stock after I ordered.

Yep, I think mdeed, got the last of it, I got 5 cans with a genset, I picked up this last summer and have used three of them, so do have two left, guess will have to wait for the next sale. 20 bucks for 6 was a good price though. Thanks Walt for the tip, by the way how did you make out with the sx-460? I have been laying low on onans for a few weeks getting ready for yearly trip south. Geo

Duplicolor 'Torque n Teal' DE 1643 engine enamel (high temp) is a pretty good match for old Onan aqua.
Will stand out if used on one part, but do the whole unit with it and it looks just about original....

I just received a package that had 2 cans of paint

NOT 2 LOTS of 6 Cans of paint.

???!!!

I'm hoping this is just a partial shipment - anyone else get their orders yet?

I only received 1 can and have filed a claim with my CC company as the CS guy said I had to return the single can at my expense and he would then "process my return" whatever the hey that means.

I think they only had 1 case of 6 cans in stock. I ordered 3 lots but only received 3 cans. They said they would refund me when I sent them the Walmart order number. They did not mention anything about sending the 3 cans back. I don't have a problem paying them a fair price for the 3 cans I did receive. I used Paypal to pay for mine. I have never used them for any dispute, but it sounds like I may have to.

I also used Paypal with my order and have used them probably 10 times or more on Ebay disputes and have never lost a penny.

Paypal also has a very easy dispute process.

I just got off chatting with Walmart.com and mentioned others had made orders.

First answer is "deal with the seller directly." I mentioned I already have emailed them and others have and received the "return at your own cost" for refund reply. I asked them to escalate this and she came back and said apparently it already has been escalated and we should receive some kind of email response from marketplace in a day or so.

Not holding my breath.

It also means I can't start the paint job I had planned (grr). Oh, well - the Lord knows why it's not working out the way I wanted it to (I didn't pray for patience, did I?!).

Turtmaster - thanks for the note. I looked at the options of colour matching but in my neck of the woods (Canada) it's not cheap (?$40/qt or so?) and also I'd have to dig out and clean spray equipment everytime - can't just do a couple of pieces as I get to them, so I decided to go with the spray cans.

this was at the local hardware store, i paid about $14 for the quart

this is the general type of paint i got, but it may be a different "sheen" (gloss) and a different tint base

this is for the more "sea-foamey" teal-green onan color, NOT the metallic green color, and NOT the green-green color. this color match was taken from a 4.0cck-3cr/12012r, serial 1072510810

Got a message back from the seller this morning:

"that is not our location. that is the location of the supply warehouse for Honest goods. Things like crafts paint and organic foods. That was a mistake on their end and I am unable to ship you the remaining paint cans. I can however refund you for the 10 not delivered. Please advise."

At least they are trying to make it right.

When this "deal" came up I had just ordered from amazon. Didn't see until the next day that delivery was 6-10 weeks (!) for that - thought it said "in stock" . (I guess that means in stock in china somewhere). Anyway, cancelled that ordered before it shipped and made this order.

I can see why they made the mistake - the pick list just said "1 de1617 + 1 De 1617" . (No mention on the pick list of "lot of 6", so somewhere in the process between ordering and the warehouse that detail got lost...)
