Fusion paint for hard top here in the desert?

Anyone here have experience/know someone with Krylon Fusion on their hard top? Wonder how well it holds up here out west. My jeep sits outside all the time, so it's gonna get hammered by the sun.

I got a black hard top off CL this weekend. It's a little faded and has some paint scratched off. Plus I could feel the heat coming off it driving around today. Will address that with a liner of some sort, but for now I'm looking at painting slate grey.

I have read several threads where guys like the fusion, but not found much from climate like this.

I painted my fender flares black a couple of years ago. Have some fading but still looks better than they did. You will probably get some fading. The lighter the color the better. Good luck!

on my old TJ i repainted the flares with fusion back in NH. I only had it out here for 2 or 3 years, but they looked as good as the day i painted them.
