Post POR 15

Has anybody used Chromacolor by POR15, it looks very good in thier catalogue. But I was wanting some feedback from people that have used it.

Yep, used it a few times, works great. I used it to restor my '80 bandit gold dash, looked great, but little tip, if your not going to use it on alot of stuff or in many coats to darken the color don't buy it. It goes a long way and the shelf life is alright, but common its not like you can use it on many things.

It's 'sposed to give chrome aluminum (shiny surfaces that anodized look. I think I would like to play around and maybe make a few bucks on the side with this stuff. How does it hold up to weather/cleaning/general exterior use? I figure if it's anything like thier other products, it should work fine. Also, I think it would give otherwise ordinary chrome valve covers a very cool touch.

It holds up great, if you buy the kit (recomended) you get their clear to. It goes on before and after the colored stuff so its pretty frikin tough. Although it does not look like anodizing, it looks more like the christmnas balls you hang on a Christmas tree. Not sure how it holds up to high heat like engines, but theirs only one way to find out. have fun

Yeah, I couldn't think of the word for it other than anodizing. For $130 I can get the kit and get started, I think I'll try it what the he!!. The Lazer blue is what I'll probably start with, if it looks anything like the blueness of a chrome header, I'll love it. We'll see how it hols up to underhood heat first, like maybe a chrome air cleaner and then work my way hotter.

You don't need the spraygun if you already have one. The lazer blue actually does look a bit like blued pipes. Its pretty cool. My fav is the red and orange, who woulda' guessed that!

Ya' know, I do have a little jam gun that I think would work great for the small amounts of paint (small cup very little waste). I wonder if an airbrush would do good for small items like emblems? I know I can make side bucks giving the 14k treatment to the import guys emblems etc. Oh yeah, how's this stuff spray?

Airbrush works fine too. It sprays pretty nice actually, it usually doesn't need thinning and just by adding a second coat in a pattern is a cool effect. That lazer blue could make a cool ocean effect on the bottom of a mirror with a bit of practice. You'll be suprised how easy it is to work with. You can even use it with brushes if your so inclined with no brush strokes. Pretty cool stuff, just candy in a can. Don't eat it though, you could have one helluva time trying to get it off of your tongue. :p
