Absolutely! I was hoping someone would ask. Brad and Eric did a great job with Gravitex and that's what I was pushing for. My Eric has experience with this product and wanted to give it a go. The trials looked amazingly close. We went with it and honestly it looks OEM. The top looks amazing in person.

Rattle can - took eight cans - after seal and primer. Then painted GM 521 white.

Robert who sprayed the top used the same nozzle for all cans. There was a subtle difference in texture with the second can so he used that from the first can for all.
