    Good substitute for plating on a car that will be driven. (Posted on 5/15/14)

    An easy to use paint, especially when you understand that its a lightly pigmented coating that needs to be applied in several coats. Its a good quality coating. Since it is somewhat clear when applied to give the best effect you need to be sure the surface is uniform color. In other words strip the part, don't paint over rust or old paint... I apply directly to bare metal being careful not to apply too much at a time (it runs and pools easily). I like it on bare metal because it looks more realistic. You can always shoot it with a matte clear for more protection. In my opinion, the metallic should be a little more like a pearl. Be sure to clear the nozzle every time you use it. For some reason this coating tends to clog more. My only complaint is the nozzle, for the price it should be as good as the new Rustoleum spray paints.

    restoring a '57 Vette, and other older stuff-it has the old factory look (not too new).I also use it for other things and it doesn't have any "lifting" or chemical problems,and no "spot repair rings"..not a substitute for cad.plating,but it looks great to me.---Mitch B

    Trying to duplicate the original finish on a gas cap for a 1971 Corvette..this paint is not even close to original, it looks like regular silver paint. I went to a local hardware store and bought a can of Chrome spray paint and gave it a quick coat of clear, looks 100% better then Easrwood paint.
    Picture with red sticker on it is what it is supposed to look like, the other cap is sprayed with what Eastwood calls "Silver Cadmium"....are they serious.
    It's pretty, but it doesn't look like cad (Posted on 10/26/12)

    There are few places who do cad anymore but they are still available. Expensive, but that's the cost of environmental compliance. I'm mid-restoration of an S1½ Jaguar E-type OTS. I've had most of my originallly cadmium plated pieces replated in cadmium but I missed some. This paint makes a grungy piece look new, but it doesn't replicate cadmium plating too well. Closer to zinc, even then paint-like. If you're a perfectionist, take a pass on this product.
    Great Product! (Posted on 7/1/11)

    I used this product on various aluminum parts for my AMC Jeep. The finish is smooth as glass, and in areas where you might goof and cause runs, the paint smooths out and blends evenly. Also, I was amazed at how much coverage I got out of a single can, as I didn't think it was ever going to run out!
    Pricey? Yes (not so much the can, but with shipping added it's a bit much overall) but in my opinion it's worth every penny. You definitely get what you pay for.
    Silver Cad is the way to go for detailing (Posted on 2/27/11)

    I purchased the Silver Cad to aide in an older restoration of our 63 NovaSS. When we built the car we didn't use factory correct colors or quality paint. I soaked all the parts in my solvent tank between 2 days to 1 week to disolve the old paint. The Silver cad actually has specks of metal flake (seen in the air when spraying parts at night with Halogen lights) but when dry the paint seems smooth & hard. The Silver Cad seems to be the right consistancy to flow onto the part and not be too runny or easily run if you shoot a tad bit too much. To me Eastwoods paint seems expensive but for restoration and quality it is worth the money.
    Covered very well & went on nicely (Posted on 1/15/11)

    I used this to restore my Stealth's shifter assembly & am very pleased with how it turned out. I used EW's self-etching primer, the silver cad paint & protected it with EW's Diamond Clear.
    it really does a good job of making the parts like like new (Posted on 2/23/10)
