  1. Hi guys can anyone tell me where to purchase spray paint for boots? so i can bull over the top and not have to worry about them :)

    Yes it lazy! Yes its not the proper way! But show parades are bone, we get them for the bonest things, so this would help me out slightly.
     
  2. You want a can of CPL from the REME G10 store.
     
  3. You can't bull over spray paint as it will crack. Use Klear instead.

  8. FFS if what you're proposing doesn't land you with more show parades, the world must have moved on and left me behind. Or there's a conspiracy. If show parades are bone, don't you have a union rep or something?

    Use Morello. Can't beat it.

  14. Get your own pair of boots (own as in privately purchased) and pay an expert to bull them to perfection. Once they're done, coat them with a clear Araldite epoxy gel. Don't tell anybody what you've done or you'll probably have the boots confiscated or be forbidden to wear them.
     
  15. Back in the 60's Meltonian did a spray paint called "Wet Look". Dried to a very high gloss and didn't crack. It was used by professional shoe repairers to repair scuffed patent leather.

    It was also used on my school shoes...

    I can't find a reference to it on the internet, but you could try asking at a shoe repairers (not a kiosk) what the current equivalent is.
