i know the car is a late model an not hamb material, but i hope this is worth a look, I had been reading a lot on the internet about roller painted cars. My daily driver was really starting to bother me with it's blochy worn out factory paint job, bad primer in the 90's i have been told. Not wanting to pay $400 bucks for an average looking paint shop job, i looked to a homemade job. Since blowing paint with a compressor in the driveway seemed a little uncomfortable, I opted to try the hand painted method. I could not find a local shop that carried John Deere tractor black and I did'nt know if i wanted to bother dropping 40 bucks on good car enamel. I've painted my metal shed and my oil tank with Rustoleum. So I opted for a quart of satin black Rustoleum outdoor enamel at 8 bucks. Rain was forecast for 9 pm on saturday so i got started wet sanding the old finish at 8 am. note to Scarry Larry - your Jalopy Showdown stickers are very durable. I had to sand them and the car lot logo down to bare metal. I primed the bloches with 2 sprays of black rattle can primer. After more sanding I put down the first coat with foam brushes, my next coat and all the other coats i will do will be by foam roller (much better plan). But keep some brushes handy for tight corners and body indents. The first coat was thinned with acetone (about 30 percent acetone to 70 percent rusto) which went down a little thick, but i am not shy about sanding and i wanted good coverage to protect against the elements. My second coat was about 40 percent acetone to 60 percent paint. My next coats will be about 60 percent acetone. The Rustoleum dried very quickly in the overcast 60 degree weather and I was able to get the primer and 2 coats of paint down before i had to go to work at 5. i think it looks a lot better than the old paint. sorry for the small photos, i am having trouble with my photo bucket link. On close inspection you can see the over lapping strokes, but i hope more wet sanding and thinner layers will eleviate some of the strokes. If you have the garage to use a sprayer, it is still most likely a smoother job, but so far i have about 40 bucks in the job, including the thrush sticker I got for the window. add another can of Rustoleum that I will most likely buy. But if you want a little adventure, I testify that the roller paint jobs on the internet are not urban legend. We will see how it holds up to another tuff Philly winter, but by spring i will be looking for a late 50s early 60s beater with bad paint to park in my driveway for another paint job. Will post more when I get another day to lay more coats.
