Harvest Gold Automotive touchup rattle can spray paint review

A while back I found out my roof drip rail moldings came off and were stuck back on with glue.
So I ordered new ones from Ford and I ordered plastic adhesive promoter, one can of Harvest Gold base paint and one can of clear coat.
These products came from Automotive Touch up website they offer spray rattle cans and other paints to help save your paint job.
I called Ford and they wanted $300 dollars just to paint these small drip rail moldings plus they wanted extra to blend the paint into the roof and cab.

Today I prepped and painted my moldings and installed one of them and I can tell you I am very pleased with the results.

I did two coats of the adhesive promoter over the drip rails after sanding with 1k grit sand paper.
I did four light coats of the base paint and three wet coats of the clear coat.

All the products went on as if I had used a real spray gun.

The clear coat is perfectly smooth no wet sanding or polishing needed.

I will mention the clear coat spray can was shipped without a ball bearing , which made me worried that the clear may give me problems.

I called the company and they assured me this sometimes happens and they were willing to send me a new can, yet they also told me anyone that received a can without a ball bearing inside didn't have a problem using the clear coat.

Luckily the clear coat went on nice and smooth but I did shake the can for ten minutes before use just in case.

Anyways I am pleased my micro project and will be using this product to blend other areas I want to repair like the tail gate.

I will post pictures of those other areas when I am ready to tackle those jobs.

For now I am just posting what I have done.

How much did you pay for the cab corner moldings? I ordered some off ebay last week that should be delivered today and i was shocked to see how expensive they were. I wasnt planning on painting them but after seeing your pics i may.
