I have heard that Kirker colors mix is not the best. Autobody101.com talks about them from time to time, might want to check their opinions out.

I use the primers and single stage urethane black for some projects. i like it. id use PPG DBC and PPG 2021 clear for a overall good paint job though in any color possible

I've used it to paint plow trucks. If your looking for any kind of qyauilty finish that ain't it. Don't pinch pennies on the most important part.

Seeing as most say this paint is not realy good and you are looking for a $ savings.
I have used a cheap paint in the R-M line {limco} for solid mopar colors but would not use them for any flakes.
R-M Dimont is way cheap than Dupont and PPG and the Base/clear works well and the clear flows out realy nice.

If your looking for a budget type paint consider Nason, I did mine with their acrylic urethane. 1 Gallon mixed B5, hardener, reducer, and a gallon of sealer ran me $325
