    In my area the parts houses have a Ford Dark Blue ceramic by Dupli Color brand. It sprays easily and coats well. In cooler weather increase the time allowed for it to completely dry. When dry, the ceramics are very durable. I like to use DupliColor green etching primer on the bare metal before spraying the ceramic top coat.
