Default Harbor Frieghts new Iron Armor

Has anyone seen this product yet or used it? Looks like a duplicolor copy almost to me.

I hadn't seen this before so thanks for the link.

I used the Dupli-color self-etching primer on almost everything and if the HF is comparable at $2/can less I'll be giving it a try.

I saw it in the store two weeks ago.

I wonder how that Rubberized Undercoating is? How thick is the coating?

If and when anyone uses it I'd hope they'd post their experience with it. I like the dupicolor products especially the paint shop products. I am most curious about the truck bed liner

The problems with guns, if you just have a small spot to do, then you have to clean them.

I used the caliper paint recently. Can't yet speak for durability, but it sprays beautifully, dries very quickly and held it's wetted out gloss, once dry. So far, I'm very impressed

Is it true there is no hardener in the can spray paints ? If that's so , how durable can it really be ?
It is the hardener that makes it durable right ?

I might be doing my truck in the bedliner as a test - its not worth it (to me) to get it professionally done so I am thinking about getting 2 gallons of the truck bed coating & spraying it on. I did use the primer painting one of my truck's fenders & it worked very well - as good or better than the dupli-color stuff I had earlier.

I looked at it in the stores, couldn't determine if the self etching primer was enamel or lacquer based. That's sort of important to know before you spray a color coat, even in rattle cans.

Picked up a can anyways, if only to protect steelwork in projects before I get a chance to finish it properly.

Rubberized undercoating- I'd love to have the thick rubbery coating like bedliners, but I only ever seem to end up with stuff that has a thin coating, rather dry and powdery. I haven't tried any in a decade, so it might be better now.
