Yeah...I guess I didn't see the highly polished "NO RAT RODS"
sign.

I have messed around with both paints, basically just for experimentation. The Duplicolor sucks. It's just their spray can lacquer in a different can. I think the clear is terrible but I may just be ruined from using conventional 2K urethane clear coats.
Rustoleum has some potential. First don't use anything but the "professional" version. Second, always use an enamel hardener additive, especially if you are going to spray. Consider Rustoleum old school enamel and use accordingly. The recommendation on the cans says to use acetone as a reducer when spraying. I've tried it and enamel reducer both and can't tell any difference in spraying or end result. Rustoleum seems to be good value for the money. I never have high expectations for anything that is cheap. Show car finish it ain't. But it's pretty cheap and does what it's supposed to do. Keep in mind that the Rustoleum people never intended it to be used as automotive paint.

I agree with your observations 100%, do you have any pics of your Rustoleum experiment, that others can see..............MC

No, sorry. What I did was paint some on a leftover bent hood. Some "silver" which is more like aluminum and worthless. Next a square foot of yellow which I left alone. Then a square foot of glass black which I color sanded and buffed a bit. Then I laid the hood against the wall on the sunny side of the garage and left it for a year and a half. When I got sick of looking at it I tossed it. Before I did, I checked out the paint. The yellow had a slight haze like it was starting to "chalk" a little. Polished right up though. The gloss black merely needed some dirt washed off and it looked as good as when I set the hood out.
