What Brand and Where to Buy Paint?

post #1 of 68
Thread Starter 
I'm planning my case mod currently and am looking for dark blue or dark red (somewhat dark is ok). Vote on your favorite . I am planning to purchase primer, base, and clearcoat for a nice glossy finish from the same brand but don't know which to use. This is the look I'm going for, but I don't know where to purchase dupont chromabase nor chromaclear. I need it in aerosol form, not spray gun. What brand should I buy and where should I buy it from? Thanks in advance.

Krylon is the best if you ask me. You can get it at home depot, or walmart. Krylon doesnt make runs easily and will dry even when its really cold.

All krylon spray paint is acrylic. They work very well on metal and plastics. Since its acrylic it will dry on very some plastics and even rubber. Its not affected by plasticizers at all.

Fusion is awesome stuff, but its really aimed for plastics. The regular stuff is best for metals, after primer anyway

Could I use these products:
Interior and Exterior Metal in True Blue
Exterior Plastic in Patriotic Blue
Primer for metal.
The Fusion series says it doesn't need sanding or priming, but shouldn't I sand and apply Adhesion Promoter? The only one I could find was duplicolor, but will it work?
Clear coat for everything
Will these paints be very glossy?
I found the krylon fusion, indoor/outdoor, and clearcoat at Aceoutlet so hopefully they have it in stock at the store.
