i restore 2nd and 3rd gen. Mustangs and use Detail Grey to finish bare cast iron pieces during restoration. Detail Grey is a quick to mix ,quick dry finish that looks great and makes my detailed parts look bare but will not rust.
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.
About three years ago, I bought several cans of the Detail Gray paint and finally used the last can about a month ago. So, I bought two more and found that it isn't of the same quality. The old mix had more solids and dried quickly to a hard finish. The new mix has alot more solvent in it and takes much longer to dry. In addition, the color is blotchy. While it'll work for what I use it for, I vote for the old formula!
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.
