say these words
That is what todays paints are.
Duponts "Imron" went out the window years ago. No one uses it anymore. Which is sad, really, because they invented it, and then sat back and watched the rest of the manufacturers run circles around them.
PPG, Sikkens, make the best, IMHO, for whats thats worth. Sikkens led the way, everyone else followed suite. Overpriced stuff, thats forsure. I like PPG personally.
The stuff is not in a spray can, nor will it ever be.
There is no single buy it at Walmart,Autozone, Napa, Pohdunk Auto Supply store paint that will hold up to gas. NONE....If it doesnt have a catalyst, it wont, will not, will never, ever, hold up to you spilling gas on a tank. Ask the salesman if they will stand behind it when you bring them a gas tank that looks like you smeared wet paint on it, dulled into next week and more or less ruined, if they'll stand behind the gas eating it warranty, which there is no such thing.
So, paint the rest of your bike with whatever, but if ya spill gas on it, its gonna eat it, big time...
anybody tells ya different, the're lying....or ignorant, or gullable...
and isocyonates will so screw up your nervous system, your doctor will have to explain it to ya. Etching primers have sulpheric acid and othe good stuff in it. Paint is a chemistry lesson kids....
