HELP!!!! Plastikote spray paint source

Guys I am so screwed.
One of my favorite spray paints for interior pieces is Plastikote
Industrial Flate Black (#2355N).
It is a perfect satin black finish for architectural metals.
Unfortunately my source for it at McLendon's Hardware no longer carries
it.
They have switched to Rustoleum and Krylon.
I can't find a single store in the greater Seattle area that has any in
stock.
The only stores that even carry Plastikote are Carquest and Pep-boys.
I don't know why, but all the hardware stores have stopped carrying
plastikote.
I can mail order the stuff but that will take too damn long.
I need a case of this stuff pronto.

Order it and pay for overnight shipping? - GWE

Call Plasti-Kote at 800-251-4511 and tell them your dilemma and see if they can suggest another source in the area or ship you a case via overnight. Another source is not just a store, buy anyone in the area who uses it. There might be another manufacturer that you can get a few cans out of for now.
In the mean time, I'd contact McLendon's Hardware management ( snipped-for-privacy@McLendons.com) and tell them your dilemma and see if they can special order if for you when you are getting low. Keep your own stock and order a case now and then.

Krylon flats are excellent IMHO. Why don't you like them? JR Dweller in the cellar

Already done that but the fastest they canb process it the stuff will be here by the 12th.
So the worst case scenario is that I have to go back in a few weeks and finish the paint.

I had a chat with their West Coast sales rep. They set me up with a company called Uni-select who can order it, but they also have none in stock so it will be the same delay.

This stuff is very special. It goes on thick and even with excellent leveling, and no overspray. No sags or drips, excellent coverage and blends perfectly if you have to do a repair. It dries to a pefect black satin finish that makes interior decorators weak in the knees.

Hum, I'll have to try some of this stuff. And all this time I thought you were a Hammerite guy. Lane

It shouldn't be hard to make them weak in the knees. They're already weak in the wrists. LLoyd

Most are women, in my limited experience. Interior decorators can steer plenty of high end business your way if they like your work and are comfortable recommending you to clients.
