    Default crusader blue brushable paint

    new to the forum... in the process of wrapping up a purchase of a 1994 silverton 34c with 454 xl's. the machinery spaces and equipment are above average but need some touching up. is there any source or alternative to the spray can? I really only need to spot treat and touch up with a brush

    I have not seen Crusader Blue as brushable paint.

    I use a spray can and touch up my engines in small areas at a time. I use lots of newspaper and a little masking tape to prevent overspray. Sometimes I will use 4 or 5 pages of newspaper to create a paint area of just a few square inches.

    You could try spraying some in a very small cup (or the paint can top) and then using a small brush

    Save yourself the hassle and expense of a custom mixed paint.
    Take your OEM Crusader Blue paint spray can, and wet the tip of a foam type paint applicator.



    Dab the applicator onto the areas that need touch-up.
    Repeat if necessary.


    If you dab the paint on, the foam applicator will not leave any typical brush stroke marks!
