Hi David,

I thought it was the other way around, but I could be wrong... I recall that lacquer was not as durable as enamel and was not a good choice for a base or clear coat coat.. Maybe enamel reducers came into play in the late 70's early 80s which is out of the time frame I refer to in the late 60s to mid 70s...

Can anyone add to this discussion and correct me if David or I are wrong ?
