† These colors are used on the 1952 Buick "Roadmaster" 70 Series and are available in DUCO. They are recommended for panel repair only. Apply maximum film thickness per coat so that the desired build can be obtained in three to four coats. Subject these colors to as little compounding and polishing as possible in order to prevent scaling or mottling.
