  1. Gone for it. RAL2000, 5 coats. So far so good [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  2. May I ask :

    How did you apply it ?

    How much did you use ?

    Looks fantastic in the pictures.

  4. @stirlinmoz Thank you. My mate is a French polisher.... he does wood. So he has a compressor bucket. We chucked the paint in there thinned 4 to 1. Did 1 very very light coat, then 4 proper coats. Took 3.5 litres of paint.... Plus the thinners on top. The pictures don't even do it justice, I can't explain how good it looks. Extremely glossy, yet somehow soft.

    New hatch isn't on yet obviously.

    Problem now, is the white bits look rubbish [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  5. Great finish. I like Rustoleum but we don't spray, we use a small roller and brush and as expected the finish is not as good, but safer for us to apply out on the driveway.

  6. Top work! Rusto does take a while to go off, about a month for reasonable hardness, so be careful with your new paint. It does harden up eventually.
