Please don't paint your car with the same paint your neighbor repaints his deck furniture with. (nothing personal, pete, just a note to all)Pete said:I tried the same paintjob and failed miserably.
I didn't. Rustoleum is the paint that you are supposed to use for the roll on paint job. My problem is that I didn't get it thin enough. I am going to try again though in a couple weeks:Ragnaarok said:Please don't paint your car with the same paint your neighbor repaints his deck furniture with.

Well many people have done it successfully actually. You'd be surprised. The key to making it look nice is spending ALOT of time on the prep work, getting the body as smooth as possible and filling all the dents and fixing all the rust. As for making the paint look nice, you need to apply several coats of very thin paint than wetsand it between each 2 coats. It takes a lot of patience.Ragnaarok said:I can't imagine how hard it must be to ROLL paint on a car and get it nice, it's so hard spraying in the first place. If you get it right with that roll on job, you deserve a gold medal, or seven virgins, or something great...
