Looks really good. I painted a bike frame in a similar product (spray on plasti-dip type wheel paint). The issues I've had were 1) coverage was poor - many cans to build up a thin layer, 2) it does tear easily - it is intended to be possible to cleanly pull the stuff off if you want at a later time... cool, but a bit fragile.
Coverage might have been partly an issue due to using a neon colour rather than black (which could easily have more solids I would think). The neon colour was still translucent after 5-6 coats. In this application, it was ok, because you can still see the branding of the bike through the paint, but the overall colour was improved (bike had been left in the sun and was faded, so this improved the uneven fade). On a wheel I might want better coverage eg if I need to fill some road rash.
If wear and tear can be corrected with a splurt of paint to patch and some xylene to reflow, that would be very cool! I will try this out on the bike. Thanks!
