Paint for Aluminum mesh

1471 Views 9 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  pete?
Is there a spray paint made that will adhere to aluminum mesh? I realize that road debris will chip it off but I just painted this stuff yesterday and it is already showing metal under the black paint. Is there a "tough" paint out there that I could use?

I have that on my drums and they havn't chiped at all. Also maybe some kinda clear coat spray to put over top of it? It may make it a bit more glossy if thats not a problem but that may help as well.
I thought about caliper paint or high heat paint. The only problem is that debris doesn't typically pelt the calipers or parts under the hood. I guess I'll give it a try.
while you're right about rocks and things never hitting the calipers...one has to think that paint that can withstand 1000+ degrees should be quite a bit more durable than just the average spray can
engine enamel.. good stuff :D

go and get engine enamel like liu said spray it on then turn your oven on to 125* (no lie) and put the piece in there for 10 min, then turn it up to 300* but watch it to make sure it dosent bubble...........this cures it and makes that ish tuff as nails!!!!!!!! i sprayed my phone cover (it was aluminum) and did this and its like a rock

Try wheel paint. Its pretty tough stuff, specially with the clear coat.
