small paint tip

Post by zabo on Fri Nov 30, 2012 10:19 am

small commercial for this duplicolor metalcast.
I needed a red 6v sealed beam for my third brake light. Unfortunatley they are going for $40+ on ebay.
I found a clear one for 6 bucks shipped then used this paint on it - 8 coats and it looks identical to the red 12v beam i was replacing.
Goes on really smooth no drips etc..

Seems like it would work great for recoloring any lenses.

Havent seen that. I have used the vinyl die duplicolor stuff though. Painted a plastis dash and the vinyl rail padding and it went on smooth and held up to the outdoor for the 2years I had it.I havent got the chance but im sure it would hold up well inside a car for faded panels or vinyl dash
