I would recommend using an automotive catalyzed paint. I like basecoat/clear coat systems. My choice is PPG but thats just a brand. Talk with your local automotive paint supplier for a system that works well in your environment and that will stand up not abuse and gasoline.
Prep is everything in a paint job.You will find that if you want to do a great job you will also need a filler primer and sealer and a lot of elbow grease. heres my latest.
Well like I said I work at an autoparts store and have a great selection because we mix paints. The only problem with that is I don't want to buy a paint gun. I may wait or I may paint it. If I don't wait it will be with a krylon spray paint and lots of prep. Thank you for the advice definitely a good looking job on the 950. How long did the first job last?
