Rust-oleum Engine enamel paint 500*f

So I was in advance auto, and they had a buy one get one free sale on this stuff. I have not bought spray can engine paint in 5 years now. I have used plastikote and duplicolor for years.

Anyway, I have tried to get this paint to not bubble up every way I can think of. Light coats, heavy coats, close up painting, far away, 10 to 12" away, I have cleaned it with prep wash, brake cleaner, soap and water. Nothing, I am cleaning up engine accessory brackets and I can not get this stuff to lay down flat. Might be a bad couple cans but for me it is back to duplicolor. Even that stuff isn't to durable but it lays flat.

Can't wait to start powder coating at home.

I've tried Rust-oleum in the past. I tried it on some black car parts and home use. I found it to be junk. The paint runs like water drips and doesn't lay well. I look at the can and it has paint running down it and dripping off the bottom.

I switched to dupli-color to paint the engine when I first got the '70 and car other parts and found it worked great. I really like it.

I will never use rust-oleum again I don't care if its free. I've used all kinds of different spray paints over the years and its by far the worst crap I ever used.

rust oleum is junk- and paint that you can wipe off with denatured alcohol after its dry is garbage. unless you are gonna use it for metal lawn chairs, buy something else

Used it as instructed...wrinkled and dried to a "soft plastic like, waxy," surface that can easily be removed with a fingernail.....IMHO...garbage.

Here are some pics of the stuff I am sanding off and repainting with duplicolor.

They where as smooth as glass before rustoleum.
