    Suggestions on type(s) of rattle can paint to use.

    I am going to purchase a poly-urene air splitter that goes underneath my front bumper. It is suppose to come ready to paint.

    I can only afford to do it myself with rattle cans.

    The only clear-coat type of rattle can products that I can find at Lowes are Rust-Oleum described as follows:

    Crystal Clear Enamel ( noted to provide a Protective Glossy Finish)

    And Gloss Protective Enamel (noted to provide superior coverage and durability)

    Which of these should I use??


    Or should I use something else???


    Also how many base and clear coats should I do????

    I have used the dupli color touch up can they work pretty good I would use the dupli color clear to it is probably better paint and sprays much better in my opinion than the rust oleum paint will. Providing that the splitter is primed and ready to paint i would wipe it down with a cleaner and than probably put two to three light coats of paint on and then probably there light coats of clear but also see what the paint can recommends and other people say. Polaris.
