I used the Eastwood paint on a big ol' a/c condensor on one of my
Mopars...someone had painted it w/regular black paint. The regular paint
compromised heat transfer/airflow to the a/c and radiator to the point that
the car would eventually overheat with the a/c on (and a/c performance
sucked). Pulled condensor, dipped/cleaned it, re-sprayed w/Eastwood paint,
and problem solved.........SLM
