COMBO OFFER: Cosmoline RP-342 Military-Grade Aerosols (Mix & Match)
These two bestselling aerosols are totally compatible. The "Heavy" (orange can) is translucent with a slight amber tint only visible on light surfaces. The "Black" is completely black, not translucent, and conceals the surface you coat. When applying "BLACK" to VERTICAL SURFACES, 2 coats are recommended for the most uniform Black appearance.
HOW TO ORDER: 1.) Select the number of total cans you'd like to purchase (example: "6-pack"). 2.) During the Checkout process, specify the number of cans of each (totaling the package size you're purchasing) in the "ORDER INSTRUCTIONS" field.
Example purchasing a 6-pack: 4-Heavy, 2-Black (in order instructions field) (4 cans of "Heavy" + 2 cans of "Black") = 6-Pack/Cans
