You're probably going to hear people say it's bad, but if  the directs are followed to the T, it works pretty well.

When people don't surface prep, don't use the hardener and ignore the 24 hour recoat times, there are problems.

It's definitely better than aerosol cans, however, high quality paint is not cheap. You will get what you pay for.

Adhesion is great and lays down smooth whether brushed or sprayed. However it sun faded pretty fast.

I did a test a few years ago by applying two different paints to a piece of steel and leaving it outside. Been going for 4 years now. The color was red, and the brands were Majic and Corotile Industries (alkyd enamel as well), both with hardener. The Majic faded to pink within a year but the Corotile paint is still a nice red.

The only time my B is outside is when I am using it. That being said, I haven’t had any fade. It can be clear-coated too which would help with durability and fade....but I didn’t do that.

I've used it.  I personally think Valspar or Van Sickle is much better.

My 210 doesn't sit out any and it doesn't get used much either since I use to pull it a lot.I have the motor off right now and am replacing it with a 3700 MK II motor and want to paint it while it's apart.
I'm not a painter by any stretch of the imagination but have some friends that do a lot of painting and can help me.
Of course everything looks good right after it's been painted but I haven't seen anything after some time that was painted with majic paint.

I had good luck with Van Sickle but last time I looked for On Line vendor I did not see anything. Orschelin stores have all closed up here, they used to carry it. Never thought my painting skills were good enough for the more expensive stuff.
My tractor stays inside so has not faded much in 10 years or so. I did a trailer and plow and they faded more since they sit out.
