People who don't know how to paint use rattle cans. Unless its a flat color, it will turn out better with a spray gun.

Should last as long as any other paint would. It's an automotive grade paint put on with a sprayer and it was prepped first.

Thanks for all the comments guys!

HAHA!! no it wont...just make sure you keep it waxed and it should be good for about 5 yrs or so before it starts breakin down especially with it being black and in the south!! IDK what it is about the single stage paints but they're only good for and 3-5 yrs with good care. The best route to go is base/clear.

Looks great but another vote for completing it with the grill. Not sure if a loop or whole grill surround though.

Ohh and Go Dawgs!

no it a single stage paint which means the clear is mixed in with the paint but is a semi gloss.
