    I painted my truck 2 years ago(before I started wheeling) now it looks like freddy cruger had a field day down the sides of it. Has anyone tried CONLUX. I heard that dupont puts out very hard/scratch resistant paint, but it is $$. does anyone know of anything else I could use.

    A friend of mine painted a small plane with aircraft paint and said it had a very tough finish. Might want to look into that but I don't know how much it is. Or check into the paint that's used on heavy construction equipment.

    Aircraft paint = $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Yeah it's tough stuff, but you're looking at $100/gallon or HIGHER!
