Here is a problem. I've had TWO previous cans of Dupli-Color Metal Specks Ocean Blue (MS 200) just QUIT. I can't see anything I've done wrong trying to paint the Huffy's rack, fork and I thought about the chainguard, also the replacement correct Rollfast rack for Tempest.

Can number three.

I waited to try and do as much as I could...shake shake, all business. Popped the cap off.

NO BUTTON! GRRRRRRRR

I wonder if I'm being played with! I've wasted a lot of time and I'm about ready to call a Boise store with this same chain and get it straight.

Either that or see if True Value has the spray buttons.

@partsguy I could sure use those arms like maybe next month...and I found a boy's 1968 Camaro on eBay in green for more references.

I have better dark blue spraypaint that is non-metallic and close enough to the frame color that I could finish painting.

I sold my Silver Jet parts rack on eBay sometime ago man. I'm sorry!

I finished the blue on the crank housing of the Huffy and got the rest of the rust reformer on the chainguard last night and brought them in before bringing them in to finish drying overnight...good thing because I knew I was chasing rain by morning. It did just that. I still have the tank and chainguard to finish painting.I hope it will be sunny soon like the weather report hints at, but not painting is only an inconvenience, the cold front is welcome after mostly 90-100F all summer, and just trying to finish the painting before it gets too cold and then we have the winter to come and guess about and be prepared for whatever happens.
