I used this on my bikes and found it to be good,

has anyone tried it?
This looks OK also, but sounds like standard enamel, presumably it will need primer underneath and sprayed on with a gun

I've used the VHT epoxy on various parts of my car. It's so easy to use and gives a great finish. It is very durable, I haven't had any problems so far.

I've used the VHT Roll Bar and Chassis paint on all my suspension components.

The front I did about 18 months and 6000 k's ago and still in great condition. I don't drive it in the wet though
It was easy to apply and I'm happy with the results
I have an old oven in the shed and use that to bake the pieces after painting. No idea if that has helped or not.

the engine enamel and high temp paints defintely need to be "cured", otherwise they stay soft, but the epoxy should not need it
i'm mystified why "roll bar and chassis" paint needs to be heatproof? i gues it makes sense if you have any chassis components near the exhaust, which z does not have any
and its only 120 degrees anyway. looks like exactly the same paint as the "suspension"
any ideas how many spray cans I would need to do the entire susp eg arms, springs,struts, cross member, rear frame, etc?
