Some suggestions on a rattle can paint that is proof against the joke petrol we have nowadays would be appreciated failing that a rattle can petrol proof lacquer. I am not looking for a first prize, black of course

PJ1 sounds the stuff for engine cases but I was thinking of cycle parts, I did try the Hammeright smooth gloss but like a lot of paint its not what it was (another move by H&S?) and for a time after the change (which of course was not announced) the tins I bought were liable to clogg their nozzels. Also after experimentation I had to add a coat of polyurethane laquer which seemed to be resistant to petrol. so I was hoping that someone had a better rattle can experience. there is that range of jobs where the cost of professional painting is over the top and I am looking for a product that fills that gap

Your local specialist automotive paint supplier should be able to get 2 pack in a spray can these days, I think you can only use it once though as with normal 2 pack it sets chemically not on contact with air.

That would work but two pack paint and its health effects fills me with dread its also hellishly expensive £22-£29 a can. If I also used their recommended undercoats it would cost more than a paint shop but it is an option to be considered I certainly did not know that product existed.
