I have another take on this: Apparently the solids content of the
Eastwood paint was increased, or the amount of solvent/vehicle was
reduced. This would fit with an EPA mandated reformulation of the paint
to reduce VOC emissions. I suspect that it will not be long before
conventional solvent lacquers, enamels, etc are history, and all that
will be available will be water based formulas.
