    Anyone ever used this for anything? I was kicking around what to put on a fuel tank for my car, it is used and had some rust so was not gonna be perfect. Well, I decided to try this. I cleaned and wire brushed the tank, treated the rusty areas with Plastikote Rust Converter, scotch brighted it all and brushed on the "black" hammer finish.

    I really like the looks, any opinions?

    Looks good.
    I have painted a tackle box for my Daughter with it. A mail box stand I built for my FIL.

    Rustoleum black hammer tone has been on the T's wheels for the past eight years. Good stuff.

    Used it on the legs of my welding table, pre-cleaned it and brushed it on and has held up really well

    I think it may be a good option for things that are not or will not be smooth. I may do the drive shaft with it also.

    It is great stuff, I've used it on lots of stuff and it holds up well. It doesn't require primer, so I paint it directly on freshly sandblasted surfaces.

    I paint practically all my engines with it in one color or the other. Looks good, stays on really well.

    The Plastikote Rust Converter is meant to put over rust to chemically stop rust. Goes on white, turns to a black finish on rust. On bare steel or paint, it is clear. I put it on with a brush.
    I did the inside of my fenders of a OT car with it and top coated with Duplicolor rattle can bedliner, still looks pefect today after 2+ years

    Yeah I've used it where the semi-industrial looks the part. Good on chassis components etc if a high gloss finish looks too OTT. Seems to be real tuff and resists stone chipping etc.

    I used gold on the dash insert and arm rests on my 60 OLDS as a contrast in the black interior. Looked great. Also did my valve covers and intake. Held up well.

    I swear there used to be red and green. Always thought red would look good on a dash.

    Just looked on the website. They still make red and green. White too. Probably have to order it.

    I like it for generators, starter motors, fan motors, heater boxes, and drive shafts.

    I use it on lots of stuff. I like the way the silver mimics a galvanized coating although it's a little too shiny. heres a pix of my gas tank I did a few hears ago and its holding up great.

    Beer is part of an ongoing joke between me and a good buddy that lives a ways away. When I take a pic of the progress I make on my car I try to have a beer in the pic. You see he still has a real job and not retired like me. :D
