Dupli-Color :: Metalcast


I'd think an alum intake Red Anodized would look killer,

It does not work like they show but I have used it for a cool effect. Put some Dupli color silver hi temp down, and then spray the metalcast over it and it becomes a candy like paint finish.

yes i have used this on hose clamps , nuts and bolts small stuff , but big items do not come out great. did a set of wheels and oil tank on a harley for a buddy. looked great for a month or 2. maybe cleared over would last longer.

well, the edel intake is now red and 2 coats of engine clear, we'll see what it looks like tomorrow..
the red itself looked good, the clear over it, is milky, we'll see if it clears up when dry's.. if wifes not home tomorrow, might bake it for a few hours at 230*

I hope its an electric oven ...lol fresh paint and an open flame could mean you spending some time in the doghouse when she see the oven door blown off..
I cant even leave an empty glass in the sink...she 'd cut off my naughty bits if I got caught putting engine parts in her oven....does she have a GPS tracker on her phone? dont want her popping in unexpectedly.....

wifemotto is.
What's mine is mine and whats your's is mine.. lol
but the garage is off limits, she don't have a key
now my tools are set up in basement for type of use, meaning plumbing together, electrical,etc you get the idea.. she desided to "organize " my tools one w end.. could not find **** for a month.. thats when she was told, the garage is off limits.. I bought her a smallish tool set to keep her away from mine, as she's good with tools, and takes good care of them, the problem is her "need" to organize them to her liking.. lol
so it looks good when looking at it, like it's a dining room..
that reminds me, her cordless drill is dieing, so before she comindeers mine.. I better get a cheappy at the store..
