Default PAINT HELP

As luck will have it, have to do a quick paint job, decent outcome on short life airframe. No time to order my usual klasscoat and am looking for a rattle can or sprayable paint, not of the automotive ilk available through Wallmart, Sears etc. Have one local auto paint store who will not sell anything in small quanities. What is a decent primer and paint and available where. THANKS Bro. # 119

Auto Zone....they have a good fast drying enamel....fuel proof and oil proof. They
have a clear coat too.

It is cheap, and it comes in the basic colors. Best rattle-can stuff around.

I kinda like "DupliColor" when I don't have time for KlassKote, I get it at one of the local automotive places. Most non-metallic colors appear to be fuel proof, but definately test it out first.

I like "DupliColor" too. I've used Rustulum(sp?) a few times also after reading that a guy that was building $5000 and up jets used it and swears by it.

Duplicolor is a Krylon product. Krylon paints are also outstanding.

No, actually both Dupli-Color and Krylon are products of The Sherwin-Williams Company, who also make RedDevil, Dutch Boy and MinWax.

kc

EDIT: the Krylon Fusion is excellent hobby fuel proof paint.

A TRIP TO THE AUTOZONE STORE:

Armed with the partial knowledge of FD, I visited our local very small "Auto Zone" store. They had loads of various Krylon paints and a few Dupla Color paints in enammel. Got the address of their next closest store, and started that way. In passing a "Pep Boys" store, a little light of memory blinked, so I stopped. Sure enough Pep Boys had Duplica Color enammel in all the available colors. Came home with 4 cans yellow, 1 black, primer and clear. Have now used a little primer, was ok. Two coats of yellow looks good, not gonna use the clear unless something bad happens which it usually does. In looking at all of your posts, I think I got the right stuff. The test will come in a week or so. I use the Jett bladder tanks and tanker. Keep forgetting to install a good connector on the tanker pump, so I usually spray hot fuel al over everything frequently. The paint will be tested. Thanks again for taking the time to pass on something good. NOW, YOU ALL CAN TELL ME WHAT IS THE BEST SPORT 46 FOR SPEED, tHUNDER tIGER, MAGNUM, OS - ax OR WHAT, ALL WITH THE TOWER OS MUFFLER OF COURSE. I understand that there allways will be a one of one-thousand that is better than the rest, but in general. THANKS GUYS BRO 119
