I am looking at these two lines and need some advice. What are the pros and cons of each with coverage ,match and price? Thanks for any help

Motobase mixes 1:1 giving you 8 quarts. Wanda mixes 2:1 giving you 6 quarts.
I have sprayed both and their color and coverage are great. That being said, I personally prefer the Motobase.

Both are top notch and as far as I'm concerned as good or better than the majors premium brands.

Bottom line is 1:1 vs 2:1 keep that in mind on the pricing and other concern if its an older car whoever has the match and best price per mixed gallon you cannot go wrong with either!!

If i could find a good way to get Wanda, I'd be interested in switching from Standox. But, I would need good support and good software.

When Wanda came to the market, I remember them saying price and quality is great but there will be no support for the price.

Have you tried the Automotive Art Motobase yet?
I order it from Chad's Autopaint in Michigan and get it sent right to my door (like SPI) here in Arizona. I live in a rural area so it's nice having supplies come to me rather than me going to fetch them.
I have had Chad mix very difficult color codes and tri-stage paints without any problems.

wanda has no support direct from akzo. its is supported by the jobber so the level of service you get will depend on that. one jobber might be great and other might suck. none of the akzo lines have a very abundant color library for classic cars. pre mid 80's and and its hit or miss. wanda is fantastic base though. every bit as good as any of the premium lines. never tried motobase.

Jim C is correct on Wanda. I had a Wanda system for a few years until my jobber got into some kind of spat with AKZO and dropped everything and went to PPG. Now I can't get Wanda and most of my toners are bad now. I don't have Motobase anywhere around here and have not sprayed it. I have Valspar and it sucks, low adhesion unless you seal everything AND it is murder if you have to get back into it.
