Good to hear it went well, ner burc'ya
I stick with Rustoleum for all my spray-painting needs. It works well on both the metal and various plastic parts of my armor, including my buy'ce, but that's a personal preference. WalMart is always a Merc's best friend
, and Lowes and Home Depot get a lot of business from us too. I spend more time in Lowes because it's closer to my house and they gave me a higher credit limit, but as far as I know, the prices are pretty well the same. Advice you'll get from more or less all of us is to paint in light coats. Don't cake it on and allow each coat to dry all the way before adding another. No need to rush things.
