    I did the Rustoleum satin black on my '06 Charger hood, looked good till a bird poo on it, then there was the hard water stains that would come out.

    Cool, you know if you're gonna drive it, there's no need for a $10k paint job. Drive the wheels off it and care free not worrying about a rock chip.

    That looks fantastic...well done! The "flat look" has really grown on me the past couple of years.

    Looks great but..... Without top coating it with something like a non gloss clear, the first time a bird poos on it, then what?? Or bug guts? The paint just isn't hard enough. Plus Rustoleum takes months to fully cure. I like the way it looks but I would of used a different paint.

    The Japan Drier takes care of the curing problem and the products from
    www.drbeasleys.com cover the care. I use rustoleum on my fishing boats and bang them against the shore, floating wood, and the trailer without so much as a chip. It's all in how you apply it.

    Great job!! I once painted a bike with rustoleum rattle can. Sanded it nicely, and applied clear coat. Looked great. Yes...it can be done. Car looks amazing.
