It's more important to find a body shop that will do good work, as that different paint lines can spray differently, so even if you could convince them to use a different paint, they may not be proficient at shooting it.
Well said, it all depends on the shop when it comes to paint. I see your in nyc should hit up nick at master works 1 in brooklyn he's a big car enthusiast ,does real good work and reasonably priced. He's done alot of work on members here tell him jason sent you he'll take care of you.
