Talk about thinking outside the box... or throwing away the box.

Purchased two cans of Plasticoat Antique Gold to redo the silver to gelb. Masking a 7.5" Linea Corsa and found it virtually impossible to mask the black due to a trench between the inner and outer wheel. Was hoping this would be a solution but appreciated the conclusive test. However this will probably work with conventional paints.



P.S. The wheels on this car were refinished using a rattle can with no clear and finish held up great for the 8 years I owned her, with no clear (catalyzed or other wise). But +1 on what my esteemed colleague from the great state of Washington said.

Hmm.... I don't totally agree..... at least here in Canada, which I'm sure is applicable in lots is US states, there are a number of spay paints that are really good. I've had great success with Rust Oleum and Tremclad- two coats within 2 hours, let dry over night, then heat lamp for 2 hours. Result is nice and durable. Most of my front undercarriage running gear is painted like this.

If your gonna take the time to do something might as well do it right. Mixing different kinds of paint systems or applying a catalyst paint over a non hardening spray bomb only leads to failure, mainly lifting of the spray bomb base.

My local paint supply company will make up a rattle can with 2K paint but instead of 50% catalyst they use 5%. This gives the can a shelf life of 48hours if kept cool and the paint takes longer to harden after spraying. Need to wear a good mask as 2K paint is not nice stuff to breathe.

no paint (or any kind of vapour/dust) is nice to breathe. at least use those $3 tissue masks..., saves your lungs!

Awesome project. I have been contemplating a set of Euromeisters, but really wanted RSR finish. This looks surprisingly simple.

I am so impressed - what a great approach!

Krylon Dull Aluminum 1403 is the bomb. It replicates a Cadmium finish and I've been using it on a '59 BMW R69 restoration for that very look.
