Anyone had luck painting reels with the Alumahyde from Brownells? 
Looks like it would be a bit tougher than your standard spray paint, especially on saltwater reels. 
I have a number of big old Mitchells and Penns to bring back to life.  Any feedback appreciated!

Use it all the time. Just finished two Penn 710's , one in semigloss black, the other in flat black. Semi-gloss matches the factory black.
Easy to use. Scuff up the original paint or remove paint completely. It does not need a primer. Follow  the instructions on the can. Purchase the extra nozzles including the one to blow out the feeder tube as they clog.
Brownell's also carries the white  paint to restore the Mitchell lettering.
