Saturday, in-between important college football games(I had forgotten about the "Third Saturday In October" game on CBS)I decided to bear the elements, take my chances, and Dullcote my old, old Front Range Chessie System 2 bay cement hopper(If Front Range isn't old enough, take the manufacturer they swallowed up. I mean this car is OLD for modern-era stuff. 10-15 years on it, probably.) I shot it with it, afraid of consequences. It turned out perfect. I then decided to finish up an old project of mine, and shot it with Dullcote.
I HIGHLY suggest you try Dullcote in a spray can. I've had the other stuff, and in my honest opinion, it does not give the results this does. Weathering my coal hopper fleet will be easy now. Black chalk inside and out, shot of Dullcote, paint grimy black on the trucks and wheelsets, and badda-bam! I'm finished. (Around here, coal hoppers have little rust to speak of.)
Dullcote is my FRIEND.
