Has anyone here used the liquid touch-up aluminum black? I'm going to try to touch up some scratched/worn areas on a lwt. Commander frame and could use any tips that would prevent this turning into a mess. I'll be using Birchwood Casey aluminum black. Thanks, Ray Rinehart

I tried the Birchwood Casey material but it didn't wear well. Bought a can of Aluma-HydeII (#083-002-012-matte black or #083-002-112-semi-gloss black) from Brownells which is tough stuff. See page 40 of catalog #54. The down side is that after reading the instructions I found the fumes are next to cyanide in dangerousness. I used a 3M mask and rubber gloves. Probably good idea to use outside too. Took about (3) weeks to really cure well, but it does seem to hold well. It is made in a few other colors as well.
