Not at all. When I read the part about powder coating the intake, the light bulb went off and I thought about my heads.

powder coating heads

Something to consider is how thick powder coating is in relation to threaded holes and gasket surfaces etc

Yeah right. When I am painting it I consider the thick powder coating. And it makes more beautiful color when it is coat well.

I shot this stuff on an old dodge truck. Its paint...nothing more...took about 6 months to start to fade...it was red..but it faded during the winter. Not an overly good sign. Im all for cheap paint jobs too. Im currenty researching industrial paints that may work on a budget. Id sooner go to my local body shop and ask for a can of compatable scraps before I spent the 20$ a gallon on that ****. I also used the bed liner. Trash. I scuffed it all down proper and it aint worth a pinch of coon **** IMO.

no matter how many professionals tell people this stuff is junk the garage experts will try to justify buying it. i dont care what you paint with it the crap will fade and solvent pop right off the fender. i've seen no proof from these duplicolor success stories.

I had the same thought..cheap paint..it does look better then primer and mixed matched panels. Honestly one time i mixed evercoat wel look hardner with fishermans paint..its a home hardware alkyld enamel. I did this on the tailgate. I waited 2 weeks and polished it with turtle wax paste wax and a soft cloth. Kept its shine a bit longer and cost much less. I would do that again if in a pinch.

cheap paint

I'm no expert on cheap paint... we use Sikkens which is very pricey, but all the
paint brands have their cheaper versions that will do the job, but even these will cost..... 3 to 500 bucks for a complete, not including primers , but if applied properly over a properly prepared surface you can have a lasting quality look for a reasonable price

This thread is ridiculous. Some people don't have all the necessary resources for a "perfect paint job". I don't have years of experience. I just enjoy doing things myself and learning. That's what hotrodding is all about. Instead of flaming people for even asking about the duplicolor, why cant you just advise on how to use it? Its obviously not a "professional" product, but that doesn't mean it cant be used. I don't even want a perfect paint job. My car is a driver not a show car. That being said, Im gonna give it a shot. Worse that can happen is I have to sand it off and try a different product.

Rediculous

I wasn't talking perfect! and the thread above explains cheaper alternatives, you get what you pay for and if your happy with that.... great!!
one thing to remember respraying over a non catalized product can cause wrinkling etc, its all just friendly advice..good luck,
Keith

Funny same old crap from the pros! I made a test panel set it out side for two year and its fine! Kept polish on it so im not buying in to the doom crap. It a cheap paint done right. Seems to be holding up well when taken care of. Point of the post was a test of the product because of the pros being such na sayers. If you read the review you will see everything one need to know. Kinda simple? I still have the panel if anyone want to see it?
