some info on pages 34 and 35 of the tech manual

i thought they used Dupont Imront but not sure on that. they call it Durethane Enamel. i had a touch-up kit and it was full of warnings, not very healthy.

Can't vouch for this persons cred, but here is a site:

http://www.chevelles.com/tools/mt1.html

That lists durethane & imron seperately, so guess they aren't one and the same.

Image The paint is HOUSEOFKOLOUR. Google it. It´s incredible, but a bit expensive. I love the Kamaleon ones.
