Who uses AutoAir? I am looking at getting some plastic prep and A few colors of autoair tor try. I am looking to paint a stock century canopy, and this is a good canidate to try AA.

How do you like it?

I do. It has some perculiar points compared to other types of paint, but I like it. I use it all the time. Then clear with 2k

Make sure to run a plummers torch over that cano if it is a milk jug type. It will burn off whatever is in that stuff that makes paint not like to stick. I usually scotch bright, wipe with lacquer thinner, flame it, tack it then spray it.
