Default Re: Best Rattle Can Paint I Have Found Yet!

I first thought he was pulling my leg but when I tried it, the mist was stronger and finer. The end result was a much cleaner finish without orange peel. I finished it off with a clear coat using the same procedure. The clear coat helps with chipping and gives it a super finish.
That's interesting and I think come warm weather I'll give it a try with my own paint of choice, Dupli-color. Thanks for the tip.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
