I've seen a number of posted photos of rattlecan paint jobs, usually with messages like "just finished my new paint job--it looks great." Fine, but do rattlecan paint jobs look still look okay once the painter is no longer high on fumes? Seriously, I'd think they would not tend to age well. For all the photos of good-looking new paint jobs, is there anyone out there who can post photos of a rattlecan paint job with, say, 2 years and a few thousand miles on it that still looks good? I'll believe it when I see it, and maybe not even then. Most rattlecan paint jobs that I've seen (admittedly not on bikes, for the most part) seem to chip if you bang them moderately hard with a wren feather.
Anyone have long-term good results? Or do you call it a success if it looks okay for a few days?
