u might want to try contacting a shop in town that does custom body paint jobs because what they use is auto paint... unless you have a compressor and an atomizer it probably wont turn out well... ive heard this paint is expensive though

unless you coat the krylon with a finish like acrylic spray then it will be very susceptible to scratching... i used some black on the front of my case and i had to reapply every so often even though i had about 6 coats on there...

Good luck, if I remember correctly that paint IS VERY EXPENSIVE. Like $4500 for a 5 gallon can or something outragous like that.
