Eastwood's Extreme vs Original Chassis Black?

Has anyone used or compared both products?

I used the original a few years back and was happy with the results, but sold the car so I don't know how it held up. The original spray bombs are on sale for $11 compared to $20 for the extreme. Just wondering if the Extreme is worth the extra money for a car that only leaves the garage about 10 times a year? I'll gladly pay the extra if it is indeed a far superior product as far as durability and chip resistance.

Re: Eastwood's Extreme vs Original Chassis Black?

Ended up getting VHT Roll Bar & Chassis Paint, satin black. It supposedly has an epoxy base and doesn't require a primer on clean, non-rusted metal. Resists fluids, chips, and heat. I've actually used this product in gloss black on some Camaro wheels (like the 71-72 Chevelle wheels) and was very impressed with it. Dried much quicker than the Eastwood stuff and seamed to be chip resistant. I whacked it a couple times with an impact socket by accident and it didn't chip. Hopefully it holds up well on the Chevelle's frame! Best of all I only paid $5.09 per can after tax! That was through Advance Auto Parts using an online coupon and picking up at my local store.

Looks good. I've used the VHT on some inner fenders, and was impressed with the finish when it was dry. Car hasn't seen any miles yet, so no word on durability.
