Anything PPG (Gm'* OEM supplier I believe) or even DuPont is a good choice. I don't know who supplies Maaco, but I would stay away from those paints.

Melissa..it'* not rust bubbles you saw. That'* a problem GM had painting an aluminum hood for a couple years.

Andrew..put the badges on and the doors are fixed.

And we never knew about the problem areas because of how he takes his pictures and does such a good job.
