Rated 5 out of 5 by Good stuff! The picture shows what I did to the back of my cell phone. I sprayed it with Jet Black as a base coat. Then used Bright White Crazer and shelf liner to give the effect. And finally, topcoated it with Mirra Clear. The Killer Cans spray like a dream! Very even coverage with no orangepeel. Lays flat! I love this stuff! June 10, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Spitter spatter...the not so great killer can Well, killer cans is a good name for it kuz it will kill your paint job. I was honestly expecting a whole lot more from a rather expensive can of glorified paint than what I actually experienced. I am not new to painting and have done many professional paint jobs and sometimes a rattle can is just a good, easy solution for a base coat on small parts. I prepped the part, sanded, primed, sanded, primed, final blocking and then tacked and started to lay base and the tip spattered all over big and little drops...HORRIBLE. I took the tip off and cleaned it, turned the can upside down and sprayed it, cleaned the tip again and waited for the solvent to evaporate while I prepped the part again due to spatter. I kept spraying and it kept spitter spattering all over so I decided to go get another tip and see if that was the other tip I could find is compatible with these cans...again, FAIL. No response from Alsa either. I got my airbrush out and sprayed the part with my good ole trusty expensive paint with a bug on their logo and finally got the results I need for a good base coat no thanks to Alsa. I have had some killer cans before with decent results but for the price and this experience they are a joke. It's best to get out the equipment and spray a totally honest professional paint job and spend the time cleaning all that up than to take the chance on an expensive can only to have it spatter and make you have to prep the part due to a 100% failure on the product...I took no pictures since I had to get the project done for a deadline...hah! killer cans almost killed it???but that's my fault for buying into it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by High end quality basecoat As other reviewers have stated and as it says on the can, this is a basecoat product. It is designed to the used with the manufacturers other designer topcoat products. Take a look at the Killer Chrome product review for the topcoat review for the conclusion of this project. I primed my piece first and quickly learned that was unnecessary. This product covers very well in a couple of passed with the first coat. I loved the way the vertical nozzle covered the areas effortlessly and evenly. I had a problem with the product dripping as did another reviewer. I originally believed it was down to the fact that my flappy vinyl glove was catching overspray and causing the drip. When I straightened the glove the problem went away. I did have to consistently shake the can to keep it from happening again. The product did eat through my vinyl glove so keep that it mind when selecting protective gear. April 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awsome Product This was my first time ever doing any type of painting. It works like a dream, easy to use, dries very quick, and it's a nice even spray. I'm very happy with this product. It made me look like I was a pro lol. July 22, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by As a base coat, it is okay This is the base coat for a coating system. That much I was clear on. However, you need a clear coat in between the base coat and top coat (at least for the selection I went with). The can proudly said that it had a 'comfort' spray button, It did not (had the old style). When it came to actually using it, I was initially impressed with the spray pattern (vertical, rather than round), but the can kept sputtering and dribbling, causing raised spots on the surface, even though I used the can in a completely upright position. The paint did cover well, but I barely got 6 square feet of coverage, using the two coats suggested. - See my review of the 'chrome' top coat for more. February 24, 2014
