House of Kolor used to be one of the more pricey paints but PPG has far and away out-priced them in recent years. I use HOK exclusively, I like the Shimrin 2 bases and the KD-3000 sealers. If you are looking for a really nice clear don't look past HOK USC-01 show clear...flows like crazy and dries to a beautiful gloss. Here is a sample of the USC-01, this is right out of the gun with no buffing:

Wow, that is a nice gloss. Do you have any issues with paint. Arching being that you are painting in pieces? I would like to start painting my panels but I'm afraid they won't match up properly if I don't do them all at once.

I spray all my jobs in sections, that said, if you are spraying solid bases then the match is easy...the only way you can screw it up is if you don't get good coverage. With kandy bases or pearl bases (KBC or PBC) you have to make sure that you are spraying the color base over the same color sealer/base on each panel. I make note of what gun I am using, the pressure at the gun, the mix ratio, and the number of coats of color base sprayed on each panel to be sure that they match.
