    faded silver pieces

    Discussion started by TURBO DOG - Mar 19, 2004

    dont you hate catching you silvers like less than a year after you did them and the silver is all gone...i mean when i am broke i paint in silver...the wal mart shit fades way faster than the krylon or rusto silvers...but why would you buy expensive silver when there is the cheap shit...this dudes post about the rust stopper shit made me think...anyone ever thought of getting like clear coat spray or maybe even the high tech gloss shit you put on with a brush to put over your silvers...this would make those bitches last forever..i mean it wouldnt even take a long time you know?>??...i mean you catch onorocks shit from 99 and it is like not there all you see is like black with those cheezy white inners...whatever though this may stop silvers from fading...tell me what you think even though i will prolly never do this and neither will any of you!

    i know what you mean but i would think its extremely pointless to put a clear coat over wal-mart silver..you might as well just buy more expensive siver and go with that..

    I THINK it acually depends on the paint inside the can..the company that makes wal-marts spray paint makes their stuff at suck a high scale and a low budget that the paint itself is inconsistant. a freight that we painted like 2 months ago just got posted in metal heads ALREADY had parts of my boys piece missing...because of the silver, another freight that we painted 2 YEARS ago got posted and the silver looked just fine...

    thats just my theory

    take the walmart paint for what it is worth- cheap as hell*
    sometimes you get for what you paid for

    I LOVE THAT DIRTY OLDE SHIT...

    HAHA...

    I LOVE THOSE RUSTED, FADED PEACES... FORGET ABOUT THE LONGEVITY...IF THEY LAST LONG ENOUGH TO LOOK FADED THEN THAT IS THE SHIT... HALF THE TIME THEY ARE BUFFED BEFORE THEY REACH THE FADED STAGE ANYWAY... NOTHING BETTER THAN A RUSTED FADED PEACE ON A OLD CAR... PART OF THE GAME ALWAYS WILL BE... KEEP PAINTIN NON STOP AND SOME OF THE SILVERS YOU DO WILL ALWAYS LOOK NEW...

    I'm with Lee, I love those rotted looking pieces where the fill is falling apart but the outline and inline are intact. In fact I do a lot of ghost fill pieces like that on purpose, either for speed or to save paint.
    The best silver I've seen for longevity is American Accents. That stuff has been shiny 2 years later, and faded to gray but all intact (no flaking) at 4 years. Rusto chrome sticks well but turns gray quickly, first year.

    that clear coat shit is too much work. To boot, it will prolly involve you waiting around until the paint in the piece is dry.

    heres an expiriment that i tried 2 years ago. i got 3 cans of silver
    krylon, aa rusto and traditional (stops rust) rustoleum.
    i did a 3 letter crew e2e on a car that is local. i did each letter in a different brand of silver. its a local so i see the car quite often and the traditional rusto (obviously) is the one that is holding the toughest. the bling bling is gone but the dull gray coverage is still pretty solid.
    the aa silver is about the same as the traditional rusto.
    the krylon might as well be the fucken 98 cent walmart silver. the stroke lines are showing through and the paint is starting to fade and expose the cars original color.

    i used to always use cheap silver on steel but stopped because so many of my pieces got faded in less than a year because of it. i love silver pieces but now i will only do them if i have rusto silver.

    i also agree with the whole faded piece thing. a well aged piece has a certain attractiveness to it. looks like it has become one with the car.
