I use lots of Rustoleum and use it for weathering on trucks. It sticks well and is perfectly safe.

Funny, does not look like a USAT streamliner!!!!!

I think the wrong video.... will go to the blind driver thread and see if your K4 video is of a usat passenger car!!!!!

By the way, my USAT passenger trucks are silver, but I guess maybe they do them differently for different road names. Be careful on the paint, try a spot on the inside of the truck and see if anything weird happens! (Like little pictures of TATE appearing)

Now that would be weird.

I saw 8 seconds of a bench, with a couple of black wheelsets, a speaker, and a can of paint, the rest of the video is a K4 on it's back.

I did not see the trucks at all... maybe I missed the obvious? (that can happen!)

Be sure to do my trick on the brush pickups, helped a lot...

Regards, Greg

Best spray paint I've used is Krylon. Super nice silver...and dries faster than anything. Gives a good consistent finish...sometimes rustoleum reacts with the residual mold release and gives you a poor finish.
