What is a good durable paint for metal? Something spray on or brush on. Primer 1st?

Tremclad, simple decent paint

If you mix some enamel hardener in tremclad it dries faster and harder

It layed nice and looked good but less than a year in the sun and its more grey:mad:.

Por 15 is great but goes flat over time they recommend top coating it
Wish I had known that when I did buddy's model a frame
Probably get to redo it this winter for free (bang head on wall)
And it's big $$$$ think it was about 90 bucks a quart last time I bought some
What you wanting to paint Jamie ? The harvester dingy lol
Endura is definitely one of the toughest paints made
Paint will still look good and sheet metal is destroyed under it

Sounds like POR might be worth it. Not too worried about looks. Just don't want it rusting away. I'll just be painting random metal projects.

Maybe a mini steel jet boat :D

And the harvester dingy is called the sea cock :party0010:
