Fusion by Shun on a Freya worked !!I have to tellya, one of my students, Shun recently bought his 2nd bird a Freya and somehow chose the new KRYLON FUSION for either Auto Zone or O'Reilley. He painted it in red and it looks like the darn thing came that way! He used no primers or preparatory flex agents whatsoever. He said that he didn't even clean the damn thing. I have all but given up on trying to paint these clorox bottle type canopies but this on gave me new hope. So I'm going to try cleaning up an oldie and shooting her with something bright just to see what for. I will report my findings and post a pic or 2.
OK guys just purchased 2 of the 5 available colors from Auto Zone for $4.99 each. Here are the numbers and their colors and 1 extra that I thought might be promising. I think I saw an adhesion promoter or a spray on flex agent by KRYLON but neglected to jot it down this trip to the Zone.
KRYLON-FUSION #2322 Dover White (kind of an off white almost beige)
KRYLON-RUSION #2327 Spring Grass (just like healthy tract home grass, should be beautiful contrast with any of the other 4 colors except the blue)
KRYLON-FUSION #2328 Red Pepper (appears to be a dense medium dark red approximately as described in the name, looks great on Shun's new frey with custom yellow vinyl graphic accents)
KRYLON-FUSION #2329 Patriotic Blue (appears to be a medium dark blue a bit darker than the USA flag)
KRYLON-FUSION #2330 Sunbeam (appears to be a yellow between lemon and Cub Yellow)
KRYLON-?????? #3101 Red Glowing Orange Flouresent (really bright! & only $3.99 and listed for plastics, may be promising but is a KRYLON but not a FUSION paint, maybe someone else will test her? If not, I think I will try her out on a raptor boom or some such.)
I brought the Yellow and the Green because I believe that Shun has the Red and Blue and others were out at the time.
Tried out my first shots tonight and shouldn't have taken the blue atomizer out mistaking it for a plug and paint came out too quickly and splattered. Shot an SRX and a VR46 canopy naked after thorough soap and water wash. Paint appears a bit thin but somehow covers well despite its viscosity. Looks like I have atendency to put on too much paint too fast. Update later.
