    I carried my 1950 ash tray, with original paint, into the stores today, but 7713 was way too dark. They hunt continues.

    I agree.
    In the 70's I painted my motorcycle helmet with white appliance epoxy paint, and a month later it dropped and didn't even leave a mark in the paint.

    Just my subjective opinion... I've used a lot of different brands and ones for different intended purposes. I have consistently gravitated exclusively to Rustoleum, whatever type is appropriate to the particular painting task. I have yet to be disappointed doing so. I might add that I have returned unused from bulk buys of other brands when they failed to perform as well as the Rustoleum. Pay YOUR money, decide for yourself... and, good luck!!!

    TW, take your seat side hinge cover off and spray the inside. When I did you couldn't tell where the new paint was it matched so well.

    I'll have to carry my ash tray into the store and see how that compares. Since only the ash tray needs to be touched up, it would have to be a perfect match.

    I use the Stainless Paint also, good stuff.

    I was just out in the dark garage holding my Rustoleum 2X gloss Black part next to my PPG DCC 9000 black. Using my LED flashlight you can see the Rustoleum is a bit more gray, but not near as much as I was expecting to see. In natural light the difference is less visible, but I'll still try a couple of the paints listed here to see if they are a blacker black.

    This is like hunting for the right trim color for the 1950 Studebakers.

    Seymour MRO is the best. Ed Seymour invented paint in a spray can back in the 1950s, and his company has always been at the front in developing aerosol paints. Their current spray nozzles spray just like a small detail spray gun, with a fan shaped pattern. The MRO colors are very high solids, so they cover very well. I use their self etching primer, which also has the nozzle that sprays like a gun. My favorite is their stainless steel paint, which I use for brake calipers, suspension parts, and various items in an engine compartment - anything in a harsh environment. The pigment is pure powdered stainless steel, excellent corrosion resistance.

    Seymour paints are sold in specialty equipment stores and paint stores, and they do some house brand paints which I think are the same paint.

    My favorite spray can paint is Aervoe engine enamel. Covers well, dries fast and holds up well.

    It seems to have disappeared from the San Francisco Bay Area a few years ago, though.

    Thanks for the tip on Dupli-Color. I will have to give that a try.
    Like Rich, I wasn't too impressed with Krylon.
    The last time I tried it was years ago, but it seemed very thin and didn't seem to have enough color pigment.

    I've been using Rustoleum 2X black for the past couple years, and it's a big improvement over what I used on my Ducati in 1969. Last night I took my recently painted hand crank to try it for fit on my just purchased 1920 Delco 850 Light Plant. When I shined my LED flashlight on the crank handle, the Rustoleum 2X black did look a bit on the gray side. I'll put the crank handle next to my Model A parts that I painted with PPG DCC 9000, and use my LED flashlight to see how the blacks compare.

    By itself in daylight the 2X black looks good, but I'll try Dupli-Color to see if it has an even better deep rich black without any gray look to it.

    Plus the Dupli-Color spray cans have an excellent spray nozzle, at least IMHO.

    I SECOND the info in Post #8! There is no question Dupli-color is one of THE BEST off the shelf rattle can paint.
    I would NEVER use Krylon as their Paints have a different base than all the rest and are not compatible with anything.
