Hey Kev

Yeh I suspected about cold and spraying - BUT

This paint is awesome. You should see the quick job I did last night - I have a NEW looking Syncros seatpin on the Salsa, Grafton washers, Suntour thumbie mounts etc. This paint is great - it settles and there's no unwanted texture, hairs etc. Not bad for a 10 minute job.

Dried in about an hour too.

I might do the FrankenFork legs in it too as it seems more resilient than car paint etc.

Would this paint be robust enough to touch up crank arms????

I think you could do cranks no problem.

In fact if you have a pair of cranks that need spraying this stuff would make them look great.

Quite a polished black finish - much like black XT arms or even the black LX arms if you recall.
