Well, I was planning to take these off after the "last autox", and tomorrows was just cancelled.

Therefore.

I had enough headaches w/ the blaze orange just doing that one spoke on that set of wheels. I'm assuming this seller rage quit and has a bunch of new cans after dealing w/ clogs.

"When it worked (the first 3 minutes of opening the can) its awesome. But Like EVERYONE ELSE SAID it CLOGS and just quits. I was able to spray continuous for 3 minutes before it just stopped working. The can is FULL. I used acetone to clear the nozzle, but something must be backing it up inside the can. I opened 3 bottles with all the same failure. Absolutely TERRIBLE. Waste of money. My friend used the black with no issues, so it must me the chemical mix of the orange. I couldn't even finish the project and will be peeling it all off (I got one coat on 2 rims... and not even good coverage, the last bits were just spits of spray).
"

"Do not buy. This is the second order of 6 pack blaze I have ordered just to do my rims..... Each can, yes each can's nozzle clogs after about 30 sec of spray to a couple min. I used every nozzle on all the cans and they are all jammed. I soaked in paint thinner for days and it does nothing to clean nozzle. I even ordered special plasti dip nozzle off DYC website and it clogs. Black plasti dip hasnt clogged on me. White does occasionally.... Orange DOES ALL THE TIME and I can not get a smooth coat for my life. I have painted alot of things in the past and have not struggled like I have with this. Maybe its just orange IDK but I get a very rough orange peel texture when the can IS spraying. Not to mention all the random splatter and drip when it begins to clog. I wasted so much money on the 2 6pks and I have like 10 half empty cans that I can not get to spray unless I order more nozzles. Whats up with this 0 stars
"

"I've painted a number of things with black plasti dip with NO problems. This orange is absolutely terrible. Sputters, doesn't apply evenly if it applies at all. Would NOT recommend the orange."

Yea, it would be fun.

But working on a car that's never been winter driven is also fun.
