While at the auto parts store the other day I saw some anodizing paint in spray cans. Has anybody tried this stuff ?
I was thinking maybe it might work on tailbooms.

I picked up a can or two of Duplicolor from Canadian tire just the other day. It looked irresistable as the possibilities flashed through my mind.

One thing to note - the instructions for use are very specific. Temp and humidity are factors for spraying, so read the can. There is a web site for duplicolor that has a hints and tips section for this product also, a worthwile read.

To get the anodizing effect, you need the ground coat product first, and quite possibly the primer product as well to get the shiny finish. An enamel clear coat would help too, as nitro fuel can be problematic.

I have not got to the spraying yet, as conditions in my part of the world are not quite right, so I will have to wait for spring.

I am going to use it on my canopy, if it works on the bit I had to remove from the windshield of my Hawk.
