Eastwood 2k Aerosol sprays

I tried this to paint my re-worked trailing arms and subframe. Powdercoating was fancier than what I wanted, but I didn't want Krylon, either.

The Eastwood 2k sprays are about $20 and are true catalyzed paints, more like epoxy than paint. It sprays nice and is tough as nails. It looks identical to the factory finish.

You do need a respirator to spray it. Highly recommend!

Interesting option for when I have my subframe out in the spring. In August I did a ton of rust repair to the floors and front end of my e30 using Eastwood's products, namely the rust encapsulator, internal frame coating, and rubberized undercoat. Seems like good stuff. Used the 2k primer to paint my valence as well, then sprayed over it with color matched cans from a local shop.

Eastwood's is expensive as heck but for most applications it seems worth it.

I've used their clear before, and once you wet sand and polish, it's about as durable as professional job. But like anything paint related - prep is the key.
