Someone asked a while ago about this new paint for plastic (I couldn't find the post). Tried a can on a Zenith H511 (Black). Result was excellent (in my opinion), much better than pevious attempts with standard Krylon spray paints. Anyone else want to share experience/comments. BOB<P>------------------<BR>

I too tried some of that Fusion paint today. It seems to go on nice, has a great spray head. Only thing I noticed is that it takes WAY longer than an hour to really cure, unlike the can says. You can recoat in as little as 30 seconds, and I had NO trouble with runs. It seems to have orange peeled a little on me, but it might have been a little on the cool side when I painted so cant say for sure it was the paints fault. Hopefully I can wetsand and add another coat under better conditions. I'll let you know if it turns my plastic into a puddle of goo!!<BR>-Jeremy<P>------------------<BR>After working on computers all day long, its nice to turn on a 70 year old radio and have it work as good as the day it was made...

Started using this fusion paint. Seems much thicker than other sprays, and I like the adjustable nozzle thingy.<P>But I learned quick that you should go slow with it. It does sag if you add too much at once. Best to do just 2 or 3 sweeps per every 5 minutes. When done, looks very natural and professional results.<P>Also, I had one can with a defective nozzle. did a spurt instead of a spray, and due to the nature of this paint, you cannot wipe it off easy. Starts setting the moment it hits.<BR>Test the spray before appling.<P>Good luck all.<P>Dan <P>------------------<BR> <A HREF="http://www.radioswapmeet.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.radioswapmeet.com</A> Antique and Vintage Electronics Exchange
