I have to replace my alternator and I was wondering if this stuff actually works? I doubt it very much but I tried the new Krylon Fusion paint that came out for plastics. I sprayed my headlight covers, grill, engine cover, fuse box cover, air box cover......It looks sweet. Has anyone used this stuff?

I've used the plastic krylon for wheel covers.. but that's it. It works well if you do it right.. a lot of people use it for there valve covers.

How does the Krylon hold up under the hood (heat)? I probably should have asked before I went nuts with the stuff:eek:: I want to spray my alternator before reinstalling. I had a guy at work tell me it sucked.........but he's a jerk-off, he tried spraying over factory paint:disappoin . He also installed red, green, and white lights on an aqua 96 mustang.........we call it the christmas tree car.....lol

The Duplicolor works yes, however the flatter the surface you're spraying, the better it looks, and the ess you use.

Personally, I like Aluminum. It's a good looking silver! And DO NOT use the duplicolor clear coat, it looks nasty.

Thanks for the info guys. I have access to a spray gun/compressor, but......I think I'll pass. I'll post pics of the krylon as soon as I find my camera (grrrrr).
