Re: Cast Iron Engine Spray Paint Shootout

Are we taking bets? I'll put my money on the Dupli-Color, although they are all three quality paint companies

Re: Cast Iron Engine Spray Paint Shootout

worth mentioning Contestant #2 aka Russ threw a little temper tantrum and lost his head simply by me removing the cap, you would think I was going to rip his head off, ha ha

Re: Cast Iron Engine Spray Paint Shootout

sorry about the wait fellas

Dupli-Color - DE1651 second light coat as per the instructions

Notice we added the caps to the equation, as I always get a kick out of how they don't match what comes out of the can, so we taped half of them off and painted one side of each.
