Check out ArtPrimo.com they have both male/female caps and converters. I've used their offerings extensively.

Rad man! Never heard of Roth paint or aftermarket paint caps. Are the rattle bombs better that typical "glitter" paint?

I would stay away from Rattle can paint. It doesn't have hardener in it. Use real paint and it will last forever.

The clear coat ( Spraymax 2k clear in this case) has hardener in it.  Basecoats get reducers (1:1), but they never get hardeners or catalysts. Nice try, though.

This forum needs a software upgrade so I can have a "like" button.

Unrelated note: I disagree about the like button. I'm on a few other forums that have them and I'm not a fan. I feel like it limits the discussion, people just hit like when in the past they would have commented, even if it's just to say "Nice".

That's a good point. I often post when I would have otherwise hit a LIKE button

Engine and ignition is pretty well dialed in. Hopefully a test ride tomorrow.
