Never tried the gelbut have had good luck with the liquid. Proper prep is the key, blasting the part is best but I have had decent luck without put but part needs to be 100% oil free.

I cleaned it very well even before blasting it. I even talked with caswell in regards to there water break test.

I send all mine off too Birdsong Inc. They coated in "Black T" which is impervious to just about everything, including high temps.

the caswell does not work as well on on objects bigger than a gas plug.
i used to use it because it was cold application. through use i found its great for small application only.it also is gloss finish which is drawback.
as my experience evolved i found out that the only way to do a professional finish was with the real stuff. so i bought tanks and the solutions and lots of temp gauges to monitor the temperatures which are critical to getting it done correctly. if you need it done go to www.hueygunner.com jeff

Cerekote holds up really well on just the gas cylinder. Sniper grey is what I've used! Matches the darker park almost perfectly.

Try painting it with Hi temp Rustoleum gas grill paint holding up great for me. I first tried the automotive header paint and you could rub it off with your hand. It would be a lot cheaper to paint it and if not satisfied take it off with acetone and go the expensive route.
