Can't fault the product, but get the hang of it before rushing in on a job...

Advantages: Great colour. Looks super (in the places where it worked out..!)

Disadvantages: This isn't easy paint to apply - especially for a newb like myself. You'll need a bit of practice, otherwise you're going to end up with brush marks a-plenty... but there you have it - nothing worthwhile's ever easy..!

Great paint to use by brush or spray gun. Once dry its hard and resists oil and cutting fluid very well. Leave plenty time for the first coat to go off before rubbing down or applying a second coat to avoid streaks.

Advantages: Perfect colour match for my myford super seven (1959 vintage) and if applied with a tissue in a dabbing action it will match perfecty paint thats been damaged with oils and the like. Very easy to use. Gives great coverage on 1 coat as well.

Disadvantages: Can be hard to remove streaks in the paint when brushing it on even to a well prepared surface. The drying times are effected a fair bit if the temperature is lower, but that's to be expected i guess.
