Shopline Paint Selection Guide

Shopline is available in three packages ranging from Good, to Better, to Best depending on your application. For the value-conscious customer, the basic Shopline system is perfect for the general refinishing of older vehicles, used cars and commercial equipment. When overall cost is a key factor, this is the choice for you.

The Mid-Tier Shopline range refinishing system is primarily used for refinishing newer vehicles or used cars, and provides a superior finish which factors into the product selection. For newer vehicles including cars, trucks and SUVs where superior gloss and fast application are essential, the Shopline Premium refinishing system is the best choice available.
