By reading the posts on this thread I'm sure you know I'm not in favor of anything rattle can. But if you must. First of all, any and all rust must be removed. Then you could apply an aerosol etch primer, followed by what ever satin black you wish, one of the better manufacturer's of satin Black in aerosol is SEM.

i would rather brush or roll on latex paint than rattle can any vehicle with .5 mill paint job.
you'd save a lot more money using a $20 gal of latex paint, instead of 50 $5 spray cans.
either way you get a junk paint job that won't last.
i wouldn't even use rattle can for engine brackets.
and yes, this is a 4 yr old thread

rattle can SPOT painting
I know this is an old thread and I do agree with.... getting hold of a cheap spray gun and compressor is the way to go for a whole car paint job but....I would just like to know about cleaning up some small rust spots on my old daily driver....a great looking "show car" paint finish is not important here...I hate to use "rat rod" to represent what I have but let's just say....an old school "hot rod black" type finish (satin)....and all I wanna do is stop any little rust spots from growing....and then primer and satin it. What aerosol products has anybody used in that kinda deal?

Well Alexandro, I do have a comment. If what your painting doesn't require a near to exact color match, then go ahead, use whatever base coat your heart desires. Unfortunately, what I paint, I want the color to be precise and if need be, be able to be matched several years down the road so for me to use Duplicolor really isn't an option. If I had something that didn't require near to exact color match, I still wouldn't use Duplicolor. I know the product that I'm using now, I'm comfortable with it, my customers are prepared to pay the price for higher end base coat and clear coats so there is no need or want for me to change from what I'm doing....but if you want to use Duplicolor...go ahead, fill your boots.

dupli color ready mixed lacquer
I've painted hundreds of cars, boats, jetskis,motorcycles, etc for thirty plus years, tried the pep boys dupli color ready mixed quarts and cleared it with a two part clear, comes out as good as any bc/cc I've ever put down. STAY AWAY from dupli color clear as it will not take any gas on it AT ALL, it'll loosen up within milliseconds, but with a quality clear that stuff is cheap and will rival any b/c ...

^^^^ $50 and 500 hours of wetsanding...
Here's some $30/gallon paint I sprayed on a friend's FARM TRUCK with a $10 HF gun and a borrowed 33 gallon comp... in a BARN. X-O Rust is the name of the paint. Used about 3/4 of the gallon thinned w/ acetone. The owner was happier than a pig in you know what! I think I had 20 hours in prep and paint total no dents were fixed, its well sanded, won't flake off like the previous job someone did on it. These pics are the next day btw... ANYBODY can afford a $10 gun and a borrowed compressor SHEESH !!!
WHY ARE PEOPLE SO AFRAID OF A SPRAY GUN !!!??? Boggles my mind!!
