    I put a painted part down to a piece of raw steel and it was a great match. Nozzle quit working once and had to turn can upside down to clear it.

    The paint meets my needs but the price is high. I've had consistent problems with the nozzles where they would stop working. Even after clearing /cleaning they won't work. Only after switching to a different nozzle from another can could l spray again. There has also been times where the paint would just stop spraying, almost as if the propellant ran out. Very frustrating having to throw away have a can of expensive but good paint.

    I personally think the previous reviews saying how bad this product is might not be using the product correctly. I got two cans of this stuff and it sprays great and the color appears very close to a bare steel look both in sheen and color.

    As far as the color being blotchy, Ive sprayed four balljoints for my car, Ive done the swaybar end link bolts and washer, ive also even done the strut rod bushing washers and nuts. I even painted the bolt for my alternator mount bracket and the paint went on smoothly and evenly and is durable enough that the paint didnt even scrape off the bolt as I tightened it down.

    I cant give it 5 stars for all because I do have to say the price is kind of up there considering that I could buy some ceramic silver aluminum engine paint and get a very close color match for half the cost of this.

    About three years ago, I bought several cans of the Detail Gray paint and finally used the last can about a month ago. So, I bought two more and found that it isn't of the same quality. The old mix had more solids and dried quickly to a hard finish. The new mix has alot more solvent in it and takes much longer to dry. In addition, the color is blotchy. While it'll work for what I use it for, I vote for the old formula!
    Great Paint! (Posted on 8/24/12)

    I use this paint all of the time in my restoration and I am very happy with it. I really like the color and havnt found anything else like it. I have found-like the directions say-a few light coats are better that one heavy one. I also like to let my parts dry for about a week to let them fully cure. The directions say 24 hours but it's probably still too soft for assembly. I was skeptical about the durability but after having to grind the paint off of a part that I messed up, it is definitely durable. Also, one can will last a long time and is worth the price.

    It sounds like the provious reviewer may have gotten a bad can...you should contact Eastwood and I am sure they will send you a new one.

    This is terrible paint don't waste your dough. I bought 2 cars both sprayed poorly both cans left about half of product in can and stopped spraying. The paint was soft, the color isn't what I would consider either machine or stamped steel and it has a yellow tint when dry. I am very disapponted and surprised because other paints from Eastwwod that I have used are very good
