Dome Paint color
#1
Hello all,

After an almost endless cycle of filling and sanding, my dome is almost ready to paint.  I had planned on using the Rustoleum Metallic Aluminum, but was wondering if anybody had a suggestion for a better looking Aluminum.  I used this paint on a few leg parts and is is ok, but I have seen pictures of 3d parts that have been painted to look like metal that look much better.  Lastly, has anybody used the Plasti-Kote Chrome, it is supposed to give a good Aluminum look.

Thanks
Greg

Assuming you are in the UK, I have just put Halfords own brand Aluminium paint on - looks amazing.
