  • Great Paint!
    I use this paint all of the time in my restoration and I am very happy with it. I really like the color and havnt found anything else like it. I have found-like the directions say-a few light coats are better that one heavy one. I also like to let my parts dry for about a week to let them fully cure. The directions say 24 hours but it's probably still too soft for assembly. I was skeptical about the durability but after having to grind the paint off of a part that I messed up, it is definitely durable. Also, one can will last a long time and is worth the price.
    It sounds like the provious reviewer may have gotten a bad can...you should contact Eastwood and I am sure they will send you a new one.
  • Not as bad as some claim it is
    I personally think the previous reviews saying how bad this product is might not be using the product correctly. I got two cans of this stuff and it sprays great and the color appears very close to a bare steel look both in sheen and color.
    As far as the color being blotchy, Ive sprayed four balljoints for my car, Ive done the swaybar end link bolts and washer, ive also even done the strut rod bushing washers and nuts. I even painted the bolt for my alternator mount bracket and the paint went on smoothly and evenly and is durable enough that the paint didnt even scrape off the bolt as I tightened it down.
    I cant give it 5 stars for all because I do have to say the price is kind of up there considering that I could buy some ceramic silver aluminum engine paint and get a very close color match for half the cost of this.
  • Favorite Product
    Detail Gray is probably my favorite product that Eastwood makes. It sprays out smoothly, and the color is a close match to natural steel. I just bought 3 more cans as I am always helping my friends with their restoration projects as well as plenty of my own. I give this a 5 out of 5!!
  • All paint everywhere that is any good is high.
    This is priced fairly. It has good coverage, and goes a long way. It does not have to be hogged on. In fact it looks more the part when it on thin. I like it. I will order more as soon as it runs out. I keep it in stock at all times.
  • Great overall product.
    Paint does a good job of resembling natural steel and goes on well. I recommend it.
  • Spray Paint
    The only problem I have is that the nozzles clog up after a few sprays. I was lucky I purchased 10 or twelve cans and had to change nozzle until I found one that would spray more than 2 seconds. Yes I shook the can.Yes the temperature was above 60 degrees. Yes I soaked the nozzles in thinner. I had to throw away several cans that were not completely used. I did like the colors and had no other problems..
  • Good color match
    I have used this for years. Happy with the color. I had the same problem with nozzles clogging and aerosol running out with much product still in can. Took it to Eastwood in Alsip and manager replaced all my cans. Great customer service! I will continue to buy from Eastwood..
  • worked good for me.
    I put a painted part down to a piece of raw steel and it was a great match. Nozzle quit working once and had to turn can upside down to clear it.
  • detail grey
    very satisfied with product have used it many times with great results.
