I used this to paint a set of 6 Dexion shelves used this colour as it looked a good match and can use any leftovers on my Harrison lathe, used less that half of the 500ml tin slightly thinned with the PT8 thinners and used a foam roller to apply, result was perfect they are old shelves but proved the paint is good. I will be buying more to use on my pre-war MG which I have started to restore so plenty of black required for the chassis and underside bits and pieces.

Advantages: Easy to apply covers well dries hard.

Disadvantages: none

Brilliant, have used this paint for years, most recently in restoring a 1961 Harrison 5a lathe.

Advantages: Easy application by brush or roller. I find it works best applied in cool conditions as it takes longer to dry and brush or roller marks disappear more effectively. Used in warm weather it starts to go off quite quickly which can be awkward if doing a large area, and you get some brush marks. Once dried it is very tough and resistant to scratching and wear. If used on aluminium you must first use an etch primer, on steel or cast iron you can paint straight into the bare metal and it covers very well. Have never needed more than two coats. Have never tried spraying it so can't comment on that.

Disadvantages: Can go off in a partially used tin. Make sure you turn the tin upside down once the lids on to get a good seal and keep air out. If it does thicken then the addition of some synthetic thinner soon sorts it out.
