i've seen surbaru white and it is more white than my MR2 super white. I also think the audi white is really white too.

Sup, my fellow hmong mr2 enthusiest.

Not the brightest white but I've always loved the Honda championship white on integra type R's.

Keep in mind that the Super White I (043) that came on 91-92 MR2's is not as bright as the Super White II (040) available on 93+ MR2's like pictured above.

If you plan on using hok. You must use there whole paint system. If you don't, they won't back up the paint.
And when you do use there whole paint system, they still won't back it up.
They always find a reason not to re-imburse you.
I know from experience. The only product I like from hok, is the kk candys.
hok is very hard to handle.
Check out this site. Most of there paint system is compatible with different reducers and clears from other manufactures. I'm using their radical red basecoat on my truck, with candy apple red hok kk concetrate in the clear

The lambo white is creamy compaired to Aspen White. I have touched up 2 Countach's that color and its not that bright. White paper is also not a good compairison. If you hold it up to a white car its brown.;)

It is still creamier than Aspen, but a very nice color.

depends on what conditions your painting in. What are your plans? Paint it yourself in a booth or a garage, home made booth... Is it warm, cold, humid, dry? These things need to be taken into consideration when figuring out materials. www.autobody101.com is a great place to bounce info off of people.
