Fusion? Does that stuff have like an adhesion promoter? Looks great. I wonder where I can find Spice paint for my top.

I'd like to know how the Krylon Fusion paint's holding up too, or if anyone has any other suggestions for hard top paint?

how hard was it to get the window molding back in? i'm about to paint my TJ hardtop and I'm debating taking the window molding out to paint or not.

The Krylon Fusion is designed for adhesion to plastics and approved for outdoor deck furniture and such. I have used it and has held up well.

Any word on the Krylon holding up? I was going to purchase a paint gun for the air compressor, but I've found more and more jeepers out there who have used the rattle can method. I may have to give it shot!

I've used spray can for years. A good primer and a good tack rag works great. Krylon is great. Found that plastic paints work good too.

Nice write up but you'd never want to paint anything on the exterior of a car with a rattle can. Quality auto paint is catalyzed - period.
