Home Bargain Rattle Cans

Recommended Posts

Just done a cheap and cheerful resto on a set of battered JCW Mini alloys, 260bhp and a tendency to torque steer, it's a recipe for disaster.

All four sanded down, some wheel filler, primered up and glossed for less than £20.00, the primer and the gloss black requires good drying time between coats, but the actual finish is pretty good for a rattle can cheapo job.

Oh paint is meant to be anti crackle or something like that, don't believe what it sais on the tin, l did get one that reacted!!

Don't think there is much difference in the filler, other than it is more expensive, l do use a fair bit of UPOL Fantastic and that is as its name suggests, fantastic!!!, you do get what you pay for!! That's why l was really surprised by what the results were from the cans, l did expect orange peel and a poor finish, there was a plan B, but not required.

It's from "Home Bargains", I'm in Staffs, seems to be a fair few around us, the Poundland aerosols in the past have been decent, but recently, very thinned down and inconsistent results, so gave these a try, but you can only dust it on, if you hammer it on, it won't dry, tried it on a scrap item first.

I'll take a pic of the cans later, so you know what l used.

This is the paint, one can failed, ie it ran out of pressure before the can was empty, but at £1.99, it wasn't the end of the world!!

I'd bet that if you took it back and explained this you'd get another can ?!  :ninja:
