I have a can, but have not used it yet. I'll try to spray some and show a side by side photo.

Go to the topic - "Started On My T-65" by Stiemmy, June 07, 2014. There's a good amount of talk about the Seaside 2X paint on there with pics.

FYI.  I use Sherwin Williams Automotive Paint ( Tantalizing Turquoise ).  And for small jobs I use a product called PREVAL.  It is a small spray bomb like a rattle can but can be refilled.  It has a pressurized bomb on the top and a bottle with graduations marked on the side that is screwed onto the bottom.  I mix 4 parts (oz) of paint, 2 parts of thinner and 1 part hardener.  It cleans up easy and is easy to use.   I recommend it highly.  I forgot to mention that it can be purchased at any paint and hardware store.

Side note:  I'm familiar with Preval and believe it or not, Walmart used to sell a nearly identical unit.  I came across it in the clearance section and bought 6 or 7 of them for $0.50 each. :thumbs:

 

I noticed the Seaside paint and have been meaning to take the lid from the Torque 'n' Teal I used on the engine in to Wallyworld to compare.

I recently used the Ultracover 2X on floor register covers....still used the same amount of cans as I would have using the regular. Personally, not over impressed with the 2x vs their standard paint. 

 

 

That PREVAL product looks interesting. I had something like that a few years back I got from Eastwood or somewhere like that and wasn't impressed, more cleanup than anything.

When I was a kid, my momma painted my bicycle seaside foam. Terrible, just terrible!!!  All the girls in the 5th grade would push me down and make fun of me. The result of the bullying was I didn't go to college and... and ... your all laughing at me, aren't you ?!! :watch_over_fence:

This is what it looks like. It's not too bad, however, I do believe there is an upside, and downside. The bad is it scratches easy, the good is touchups are a breeze.

It sure does look close.  The problem is that rattle cans do not have hardened and that is where the shine and toughness come from.

I'll say it again,  automotive paint and a Preval is the way to go.

I've seen spilled gas or degreaser take rattle paint
off to the primer. I question long term sun exposure
With fading? The color is close ,I'm not saying
it's a bad thing but if I only want to paint it once
,for myself I will go with the proven paint.

I agree, but clear coat in rattle may combat the durability issue?

In my case, no room, no 220 for a decent compressor, and renting a duplex, I didn't have much choice in the matter.
