Has anyone used Duplicolor Perfect Match primer, paint, and clear coat? How were the results? The guy in the youtube video makes it look easy.

It matched my VW Tornado Red perfectly, can't even tell.

I used 1k primer and clear from the body shop supply though.

Never used it but if it includes the primer I assume it is the correct color/shade for the base color.
You can have a perfect match yet without the exact shade/color primer have a total mismatch. This is the reason for doing a spray out before shooting on the panel.
I use these before spraying the panel, paint the little car same as you will the panel, record psi and primer shade and number of coats, shoot the same when it matches perfectly. A little extra works but its spot on every time when you take a gun to the car, it makes blending a breeze.

I've used it on my truck and while the color was almost spot on, their clear yellowed badly. I used it with a proper spray gun clearcoat and it matched well. The primer is garbage IMO, a good 2K spray primer would be a lot better.

Your local automotive paint store can mix your color and put it in an aerosol can. More expensive, but would likely yield better results.
