Ok, I didnt know Fusion came in spray bottles. Don't know why I was under the impression that I would need brush it on.

Does Walmart carry this stuff or will I have to go to HD,Lowes or Sears?

Couldn't find it at HD. The only local place I could find it was Ace.

To give you an idea of the colors they have...

Cool. I think I'm going to go with Navy.

Why does it say for Plastic?

I used a sponge brush and applied it THICK ! I actually dumped the pain onto the back of the tank and spread it on. nice and thick. I bet u can just use a few coats to get the same coverage.. Too bad yo uweren't closer to me I'd give you my paint ! I got no more use for it !

It is for plastic. But its the only paint (that i found) that also says its bonds to glass.

Oh, I didn't know it says bonds to glass.

XXFirefighter, I thought this Fusion comes in spray bottles. Or are you using something different?

I didn't use Fusion...
I just used rustolem (sp) paint. Stock blue color...
I'll take a pic of the can tomorrow and show you what it was. 5 bucks I think it was..

My LFS says to use Oil base paint? It bonds very well to glass, the only problem I had was finding the right color blue I wanted in a oil base. So I went with black on my 55 and 125...... Next tank will have a blue background
