So how's the all aerosol job holding up?

I did a review on a REAL 2K aerosol can primer and clear back in May of 2009. Someone just asked me about it in a PM and I climbed up on the roof where I put it back in 09 to see how it was holding up. Here it is, I clay barred it because of all the crap that had fallen on it over time then washed it.

It still looks like the day it was shot. Listen, I am not saying to paint your car with rattle cans. What I am saying is that in a pinch for someone without proper equipment there ARE ways to get things done. This paint and clear has held up every bit as good as anything shot from a gun at this point. Read the review, it was pretty interesting to me!

Look's Great...

It goes for anything you do today,,, The better you prep everything, The better the results will be... You must have done some fine prep work... The proof is in the pudding.. Or in this case, the paint..

I had forgotten about it when I got this PM yesterday. It was dirty and felt kinda rough and I thought it was wasted. But a quick wash and clay bar and it felt like the day I cut and buffed it. Sad part is I painted the front clip on my wife's family truckster around the same time with some Rubber seal "Medallion" clear that was given to me by the rep that has failed miserably!

The Medallion stuff is carried by my local jobber. I've had good luck with the Medallion primers and surfacers but have been afraid to use their CC on anything. I've stayed with brand-name(Glasurit, Spies-Hecker) BC/CC on all my jobs. How did their CC fail? I'm just curious.

It has simply turned to smoky gloss less crap. I have never seen anything like it. Been in this business a long time and I have never seen a clear fail this fast, i would have expected more from synthetic enamel!

I worked for a guy that bought a lot of rubber seal products.I was never that impressed with their clears. The 2k primer seemed to work OK but took forever to dry. The clear seemed to die back alot to.

It's like I said, it is certainly not the best way, but it can be the "bestest" way.
