    Rustoleum Sail Blue. I repainted my Bobcat. Someone recommended the Krylon True Blue but that stuff sux. Krylon is junk. I like a nice finish after putting in 3 hours on bodywork. Krylon looks like orange peel no matter what I did with it. The rustoleum finish came out like it was sprayed with a gun. Dave

    Thank goodness, it's not just me.

    Spent a good little while sanding off a layer of the craptastic krylon paint after just about ruined my toolbox. Went to Lordco and picked up some Dupli Colour, that stuff sprays very nicely too.

    My dad's Miller BlueStar 2E had the paint fade and start flaking off. He used Krylon Ford Blue to repaint it. At the time, the paint was an almost exact match for the Miller Blue then. Now, the Krylon Ford Blue does appear to be somewhat darker. Here are some pictures of the unit in question.
