I know the subject of painting has been beaten to death here on the forums, but I was wondering if anybody here used a "Preval" bottle to paint a frame. I didn't find anything in search.
For those who are unfamiliar with these things, a "Preval" (that's the brand name) bottle is simply a small glass jar with an aerosol "power unit" screwed to the top. The package they come in shows a bicycle (an old Cannondale mtn bike) that was painted red but I don't know if that was the whole frame or just parts and/or touch-up. You can apparently spray any kind of paint you want instead of doing "can jobs".
I work on military vehicles for a defense contractor and I use these everyday at work and they're great for touch up and stenciling. However the mil spec paint I use is flat and I haven't used these bottles for anything else. I asked my team leader if you can buy these retail and he said you can get them at Home Depot. You can also buy the power units separately when they get "spent" and keep using the same jar.
Anyway sorry for the long post but I'm wanting to use these on an old Schwinn tandem frame and wanted to see if it would achieve good results and how many power units I have to go through.
