Thanks given what they looked like when I bought them, they've come out so much better than I expected. Just got to sort the fronts now but at least having the rears on will aid getting the back end lined up.
It does look pretty good doesn't it. I'm quite impressed that it all just smooths itself out. Annoyingly, I think I made a fair bit of dust while I was pratting about in the garage so i'll have to have a look this evening to see whether it still looks as nice. Can you put a piccy up of yours as mines not the smooth hammerite, its 'direct to rust' which still seems to give a smooth finish. Just be interested to see if theres a difference.
I was warned many years ago by a professional that Smoothrite wasn't a good paint (after I'd used it!) as it is so brittle it creates microscopic cracks which moisture gets behind, unseen until it all falls off in sheets. He was correct! - not something I'd even paint garage shelves with.
Aww really? It even advertises that its meant to repel moisture. Ok, well its on there now so if it starts to peel, i'll attack it with a jet wash... maybe not on the inside of the car though obvs. It looks pretty good at the minute
