That goes double for spray can paint I think.
Ever tried Ace hardware BBQ high temp paint?
That stuff is useless even for painting graphitie on walls.
I don't paint enough big things like a whole bike frame to mess with setting up a compressor and paint gun to paint, it is just brackets and engine covers and maybe the head on an motorized bicycle so nothing beats a can but after trying every brand and type of black spray paint I can get locally I am sold on PlastiKote engine enamel for everything. Expensive at like $8 a can from the auto supply house but man does that high temp stuff does a good job for anything and I can usually get 4 bikes worth of painting out of a can.
