Default spray paint

Anyone done a quality paint job on their cart using spray paint? I have my body prepped and ready, glazing putty, primer, wet sant, etc. I have done some very nice work in the past with some dupli-color spray paint as well as some krylon products. This is kinda big and starting to second guess a little.
Anyone got pics?
Thanks in advance.

I have painted lots of stuff with rattle can paint and most turned out ok as long as I took my time and followed the advice on the can. I try to use several light coats instead of trying to "1-coat" it. If you do your prep work right, then you will be satisfied. I have also found that if I take the time to find the cans that have the valves that spray a fan pattern not the typical valve on the cheap wally world paint, I get better coverage and better results. I just touched up my marathon and plan on a camo vinyl wrap in the near future.

I just got done painting mine with spray bombs and I must say it turned out great! Not patting myself on the back or anything but if you take your time and use quality paint it will turn out great. I went to the auto parts store and they put the HOK PPG in them. A few dollars for sand paper, plastic filler, bulldog stuff (that was the most expensive) and paint is all you need.

if you spend the time to do the prepping right yo might as well get some good paint for it and clear... at least go with a better brand rattle can like alsacorp.com they've got automotive quality paint available in rattle cans as well as clear coat

I agree, I went with Omni and they mixed it with the flex additive, clear and put it in the can for me. Costs a little more but the results are worth it.
