    Mirax H,
    Depends on what you mean by scratch!
    For weathering: it works ouyt pretty good as I took a Scotchbrite pad to put in the "brushed" alluminum look and depending on how heavy you want to weather, the harder you should scrub.
    If you mean resiliance: It is a thin paint! By nature it is of an almost water/thinner consistancy, however applied in several coats on top of a GOOD High Gloss Black Base it handles very well! I would'nt toss it across the stones or nothing like that of course unless you intended to Top coat it first! Then again would we do that anyway?LOL
    Hope this answers you question!?LMK
    sincerely, shunned/BH-8899

    Yup, sure does. What about water- does it ruin it at all like if it got water drops on it or something like that? It really looks beautiful. Wondering if this would be do-able for armor- I love how it has the brushed aluminum look with the scotchbrite. Awesome work.

    Water is not a problem Mirax-H. I've got caught in the rain before for very brief periods of time and have not had any problems! All my armor is painted with this same paint! More Pics coming as soon as I can grab some!
    Thanks MiraxH!

    im seriously debating on painting my armor and helmet in the alclad II as well.

    wasp,
    shunned mentioned in another post that he used the chrome but im interested in seeing how the polished aluminum might look too.

    Can the Jango bucket be too shiny?

    Is that Alclad paint?

    Re: My BKBT Jango FEtt Bucket! (Pic Heavy!)

    It's actually fiberglass painted with an automotive product called Mirrachrome from Alsa Corp. The paint is a little on the expensive side. I was thinking about painting my car with it and decided to test it on something smaller to make sure that it actually looks like real chrome. So far I think it does the trick.

    The helmet I may end up putting on Ebay when I've finished it. That's where I got it from and the paint job it came with left something to desire. Also, it looks like whoever did the recast had a poorly made mother mold since the back of the helmet is a little on the misshapen side.

    The other trick is before it can be sprayed with Mirrachrome, the helmet needs a flawless, glass-like black finish. This stuff shows every single mistake you make in fairing, priming, or painting. It's a little more noticeable in this photo from behind where I didn't quite buff the bottom edge to a perfect gloss before the chrome paint.

    Yes it is nice, but the people who care are the people who are seriously pursuing total accuracy.

    Just to clarify,

    The last few pics are NOT one of my Jango helmets. It looks to be one of JD's if I'm not mistaken. Just want to give credit where credit is due.
