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.
