Omni System Selection Guide

“Which System or Product is Right for Me?”

Factors in choosing the right products for a specific job can vary from the year and type of vehicle to the cost of material. Here we offer three complete OMNI™ Refinish Systems to use as a guide in helping you choose the right products properly suited for the type of refinishing being done. Most products from these systems may be combined with products from other categories as long as the product data sheets show compatibility.
