    I was wondering if anyone has ever used Dura-Coat for their rims and/or badges or bumpers?? How has it turned out?

    I know its a firearm product that works great with metal and plastic, but haven't read on here of anyone trying it out. Dura Coat is super tough and can stand tons of heat and abuse, seems to me to be a better choice over reg. paint or p-dip. Any thoughts?

    They recommended a 7 week curing time period after spraying. I've used the product on knives and its not solid till after 4 weeks anything before that and it chips and scratches fairly easily.

    Yeah I know, kinda sucks! I think it says 4-6 weeks until its fully cured, but after 1 day you can mess with it. I guess that's why people don't use it, no instant gratification...when it cures though, it's hard as nails!

    Yea you can hold it after a day but its by no means ready for any real exposure. After it has cured it's very hard but most people can't live without rims for 4+ weeks
