Eastwood Underhood Black Paint
Product Review (submitted on July 6, 2011):
I'm working on a 1986 Buick Grand National. I sand blasted, primed (with black primer), and then painted some of the underhood brackets and fuel rail with the aerosol version of this paint. I found that the spray had a hard time picking up the paint solids from the can and depositing them smoothly and evenly on the parts, and this was after shaking vigorously for several minutes. Even after three fairly heavy coats, there is still variation in the sheen of the paint as you look across the surfaces of a part. The sheen ranges from nearly flat to nearly semi-gloss on the same part. I also noticed that dry, black overspray particles got everywhere, and I mean everywhere. Clean-up in the basement took forever. Overall, the sheen of this paint is a little flatter than the factory black paint that was used on this vehicle. Quite frankly, the rustoleum primer I used looked smoother and more consistent than this paint did. If I ever do this again, I will order the quart and try running it through my sprayer or air brush, or I will try a different paint. The aerosol cans were just not that good.
