When I started painting, Sinclair was #1 in SoCal. ICI destroyed them.

Are you guys trying to make an old man cry?

If Sinclairs was on the market today. SoCal
would only have 1 paint store.

I know the most Iconic Building I worked on with their material was Walt Disney's corporate head
quarters in Burbank CA

-Sinwall
-Sinco Satin
-Stucco-Life
-Plasto-Life
-Sash & Trim Enamel

I started buying from Sinclair in 1981. In those days we used stock colors for everything. Tinting was very rare. I didn't even own a fan deck. Just int & ext color charts. Great company & great people. What happened makes me very sad.

I like the Old Quaker can - When I first started in 89 and was doing track work up in Palos Verdes that's all we used.
