Krylon Paint?

How many of you have used this brand of Canned Paint to paint parts of your rig? I can't be bothered using the air gun in the engine bay and bagging everything up, so I was just going to use Krylon Cans to give it a bit of a tickle with colour.

any help would be appreciated?

what sort of finish does it give? how much coverage can one expect from a can? etc etc....

Re: Krylon Paint?

I prefer Rustoleum overall Krylon when it comes to spray cans.

I agree with Wayne. Rustolemum is the way to go.

Re: Krylon Paint?

I used krylon to do mine, of course i wasn't worried about it being shiny. it worked good for me.

Re: Krylon Paint?

Only Krylon I like is the Rust TOugh line. THe gloss black kicks arse.

Re: Krylon Paint?

I vote for rustoleum too! 4 cans did my hood, doors, windshield surround, and wheels. Looks great! Good luck!

Re: Krylon Paint?

I ended up getting two cans of "Belton - molotow" and one can of "killrust - metal primer). that should be plenty to do my engine bay before I install the engine.

Re: Krylon Paint?

I hate regular rusoleum, it runs and takes way to long to dry and recoat. Haven't tried the new tough coat yet though. I am a big fan of regular krylon, their semi gloss black looks almost like black pwdercoating, and very durable. Their line of regular krylon stands up well outside, I sprayed a metal clothes line pole with black gloss Krylon about 10 years ago, and it is still shiny. Attached is a pic of my sami at zukimelt with a new paint job of sun yellow krylon. No one would beleive it came out of a rattle can, but I guess practice makes perfect!

Re: Krylon Paint?

I'm no Picasso with spray paint, but I just mixed three different brands to do my Zuki just now, and I can say without a shadow that Dupicolor is the best. I tried Rustoleum, Krylon, and Dupicolor. Dupicolor came out more even, didn't color my fingertips, didn't drip on my foot, and dried smoother with less runs and no air pockets.
