I've noticed no fade at all,

I've sprayed a few things in black, It claims NOT to be a paint, but a Dye.

Same story throughly clean, apply a light coat, then a 2-3 more coats slightly thicker.

Its pretty resistant to scratching and just like anything preparation is the key.

As for Bunnings they simply sell s**t. some random good stuff, but I look at it as a enlarged $2 shop.
If you were to insult someone I'd buy jumper leads from Bunnings for a X-mas present)

Repco/Bursons and any other reputable auto paint dealer.
