Pic: Krylon Fusion is excellent paint with a smooth high gloss finish.

Sprayed under the right conditions this paint covers well with several very light coats a few minutes apart. The result compares well with Brooklin’s excellent finish that has been enhanced with polishing. There is no orange peel whatsoever. While the paint covers well it doesn’t obscure the shut lines. The Sunset Coral color match makes for a nice result. Thanks for your comments along the way, folks.

It’s also all-in-one paint and primer. Sprays very smoothly as if from a sprayer. (EOM) by David Knight #25321.
What temperature did you do the paint job? I assume it wasnt outdoors! (EOM) by Mark Lampariello #25321.
Mark, it was 68 degrees and dry with no breeze so yes, I painted it outdoors. by David Knight #25321.
