    Default PPG OMNI MP and/or Shopline products

    I used the MP170 and MP182 2K on my last project. Supplier no longer carries the Omni line but has replaced the Omni with another PPG line which he claims is the equivalent called "ShopLine". He says it's available to "premier" distributors only. I'm not comfortable, since it's even less expensive, I believe. Give me peace of mind or options for Omni comparable (or better) products in the mid-price range that you trust. Thanks.

    The Shop Line is an improved Omni line... The Clears and Primers are supposed to be much better than Omni... I have used Shopline Epoxy Primer and Clearcoat and think they handle and spray well

    If you sprayed the Omni MC-161, it sprays pretty much like that
