what if paint question

Has anyone ever considered using the Eastwood Companies chassis black paint as a top coat. It is chip resistance, impervious to brake and gas fluids. It comes in a satin and a gloss, thinking of this as an alternative to the JD black. Any comment or information, go , no go ?

That was something I was looking for in the literature. Guess I will just give eastwood a call, they are helpful. The UV thing was a consideration. Just though i would put the question up and see what came back. After all this is the place I read about roller painting a car, so I'm figuring someone has tried this.

did you search in here ? i was reading a good while back, that much of the chassis stuff is not UV rated. and would look crappy in a short while of direct sunlight.

did some more research and the paint, it is UV resistant, evo friendly, high solids, comes in aerosol, for the painter without a gun. I figure if some are willing to go the rustoleum route this could be another avenue. Satin finish 60-70% gloss , Gloss finish 85% gloss. This could be a new hotrod black. I am thinking of getting a can and spraying my trailer that sits in the Sun year round, but i will most likely be painting my project before a good test of the finish could be accomplished. So if anyone out here has any experience with this product I would like to read their opinion
