Default Aerosol paint.

A couple of weeks ago i was wandering around our local Factory Shop & i came across aerosol gloss black & matt black in 400ml tins at 1.39 each. As i've been using Smoothrite aerosol gloss back recently (at 9.99 a tin) i thought "worth a try--if its cheap rubbish i havent lost much" It's named PAINT FACTORY Professional finish,all purpose paint for metal wood & plastic. Paint factory is a reg trade mark of Rapide Products Ltd.(it says here) Its the most brilliant paint i've ever bought fantastic cover great finish. I suspect it might be an end of line product as its so cheap. It says it contains Acetone,Xylene & DME. Not sure what DME is but it might stand for death moderately early judging by the smell. But apart from that i'll be looking for more of it Smoothrite can stick theirs as it has less than half the cover of this stuff. Anyone else come across it???

Could be either "Dimethyl Ether" (CH3OCH3) a common aerosol spray propellant or "Disney's Magical Express", an airport transportation service for Walt Disney World.

It's the second one you jump on the express after inhaling too much of the aerosol!
