If you want paint that will stick really good ,use truck bed liner spray paint. That stuff is great. I used a little on my cannon and I think its cool. It has a texture for a sure grip and it is scuff resistent and chip resistent. I used black on mine but I think you can get it in other colors. You can pick that stuff up at like any automotive store. I got mine from a store here where I live, its called Fleet Farm. They sell farm supplys and other stuff. That stuff will stick to anything, plastic, metal,Etc....You name it.

DWV. ahh. I would change that immediately if I were you. You may end up killing your self with that evil bell reducer. Seriously its for your own safety you switch to NSF-PW fittings i think there are some others on there. But really its a pretty cool cannon just retire it until you fix the DWV.

Why am I not surprised? :roll: You shot it in plain sight in the heart of suburbia. All it takes is one "concerned citizen" to call to the cops and your name is mud for good.

Kylon Fusion is spray paint made for plastic. You should have put the blow gun right on the sprinkler valve, eliminate the hose.
