    Default Best paint to use under the wheel arch

    So I'm going to be painting under my wheel arches when I take my suspension off when fitting my new coilovers. What paint are people recommending to use that I can brush on???

    Try household gloss paint. It is mroe resilient to stone chipping then many of the enamel painrs like Hammerite.
