A lot of people are in Oshkosh now. I hope to get there Thursday. Reason for my post though is I was touching up my prop with Tempo propeller paint from ACS. The flat black went on nice but the white was horrible - splatter & blobs from the spray bomb. Seems to me I ran across a similar post some time ago using these. What I thought of doing was spraying out the can into a container and using it in my regular or touch up gun. Anybody ever tried this? Another alternative would be to go to my local auto paint guy and get something close, but using what I've got would be cheaper and easier.

I sprayed the contents of the Tempo white spray bomb into a jar, mixed it, strained it, and put it thru my touch up gun - went on the prop perfectly.

Default Update on Posts 11 & 12

The gray Tempo A151 didn't match the gray on the rest of the prop and the white Tempo A152 I used on the tips pretty much came off on the way to Oskhosh. I emailed ACS about the difficulty I had with the white spray bomb but never got a response. Also emailed Hartzell today - they replied they use Sherwin-Williams Polane-T (a polyurethane enamel). I think I'll try the Sherwin-Williams Acry Glo (acrylic urethane) I used on the rest of the plane - can't be any worse than the Tempo.
