anti-chip paint?

Anyone know of a good off-the-shelf spray paint that resist chipping? I tried Rustoleum. sanded to metal, used the primer and topcoated about 4 coats but one little "dink" with the wrench and it chips. Thanks!

Lemme know if you find such a thing, I could use a can of that and some anti-wear tires to match [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

The thicker the paint the eaiser it chips also the harder the paint the easier it chips. Softer paints scratch esier but resist chipping. The only way to change the hardness is to get paint blended for you instead of using piss can paint.

For parts and engines you have to spray

but for the body nothing in a can is going to be as tough as a real spray gun job with expoxy primers to hold on to it,etc.

Clearcoat and waxes help too

Thanks, I am doing stuff like suspension, carage and engine brackets. Guess I gotta live with it [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

You could try some of the self bedliner kits. A lot now have colors.
