Rustoleum hammered black

this really isnt tech but does anyone have any pics of bumpers, skids, etc. painted with rustoleum hammered black. I just prepped my bumpers for paint and they are just sitting in primer waiting.
Thanks.

There is a bit of a learning curve involved with the application of textured finishes. It takes a little practice to get a seamless, even finish, especially when relatively large surfaces are involved.

I don't have any pics of the hammered black but you won't be sorry going with that finish... It hides inperfections and withstands alot more abuse than regular rattlecan paint...

not jeep related. but i used it on all the cabinet drawer and cabinet door knobs in our kitchen over 3 years ago. we wanted a black "orange peel" look to match the black textured applicances and did not want to but new hardware.

it has held up well, still looks new. granted it is not out in the rain and mud, but the knobs do get a lot of use.

How does it hold up? I have heard regular black has a tendency to scrape easily.

mine has been holding up fine for a year now. i have only had minor instances where it needed to be touched up. a big factor in making sure the rustoleum brand paint sticks is using a self etching primer. IT IS A MUST

I had regular black for over a year and hated it. It scratched and faded through. Then I switched to hammered black and have had that for a year and it's MUCH more durable and has a nicer finish. I can't recommend hammered over regular black enough!
