Thanks for that info. I guess I will return it unused. Anybody tried any of the brush/roll on stuff?

The right paint will stick to fiberglass providing the surface is properly prepped. Prepping usually involves sanding and a tack cloth.
Corvettes are painted when a touch up is needed.

I did get oil based paint to stick it is that rubberized sealant that does not want to stick.

Eric, if you have a way to put his tuff on, I would be interested...

I was wondering as it says on the can that is bonds to any metal.

Corvettes are painted. Period.
That is, their surface finish is always paint, and I assume that it always has been paint... not gelcoat. This does illustrate that fiberglass is quite paintable, with the right paint.
