    I use buffalo milk on my rustoleum job. No one is going to confuse it with a quality paint job but it definitely gives the car a nice sheen and keeps the paint from chalking up.

    As stated above, try John Deere black, cheap and easy to use at home. Holds up real nice.

    The only problem with john deere blitz black is, if you ever cahnge your mind, well, don't change your mind.

    And buffalo milke sounds like infomercial ronco crap.

    Buffalo Milke is a cleaner/spray wax that is infomercial ronco crap but I love it.
    John D'Agastino uses it and if it's good enough for his cars it's good enough for my old beater!

    this was rattle can wrought iron black. i think it is about 80% flat.

    Rattle can was my only option at the time because i could only work on it at my parents house- and my dad would not let me spray it there.
    at the time even a cheapie earl schieb was too $$ for me.
    (i must have blew my money on billet wipers instead!)

    i color sanded it up to 1800 grit.-i would wax it every few months with a lemon furniture polish to keep the dust off and seemed to keep it from ever chalking up.

    i always planned on painting it but sold it before i got the chance. i hated people calling it a rat rod. [​IMG]

    I've never done anything to mine to maintain the paint other than wash it with soap and water at the self serve car wash. Has a nice slight sheen to it, but is a flat single stage of some sort. Was on it when I got it.

    I'll be working the pannels and respraying them as I go after I get the breaks sorted out. The passenger side front fender has a bit of bare metal on the top in the size and shape of the bottom of my bottle of degreaser...turns out it gets hot enough in my shop in the summer to boil degreaser out of the top of the bottle.

    Just to clarify about the dust and scratches: it gets scratched because I drive it to work 3 or 4 days a week, and dust is a problem because I live on a gravel road. (Don't want anyone thinking that I'm the guy at the show dusting his car obsessively with a mop thingy.)
    What I meant about the touchup is with gloss paint you can always just rub out scratches, but with the flat you're stuck with it.

    Aw shit busted again. I'm just lazy.

    I had a 32 tudor that was solid but had funky paint. I was playing around with some Krylon semi flat in the garage just for shits and giggles and it made such a nice improvement that I fell in love with it. For me it has just the right amount of sheen to it.

    I hate to break it to you guys but the old hot rods that we love so much were rarely as nice as the cars we build today to look like them. I intensionally left some defects that lets people know that it's real. I wanted a car that was closer to the cars of my youth than the Boydster. Am I lazy? Probably but that is not why my car isn't as nice as some of the street rodded clones. It's that way because I like it that way. Tough shit!:D

    I originaly intended to run my car in primer but decided against it. I liked the color of the primer enough that we tried to color match it with real paint. This turned out more of a semi-gloss but I'm pretty happy with it. It's a product called UNO from RM.

    this was the primer

    Clark has it down. The JD Blitz is tough, and need's to be removed before a 'true' paint system is to be applied. The Amish were 1st.

    When I did my 29 roadster, I had a tight budjet--like almost no money at first.My friend has a parts store and told me that Orr-Lac is a "high solids" type paint--meaning it's not as thin / runny as most spray-can paints. I tried it on some small parts and came out great.So I bought a case--preped all my parts REAL good--and painted everything--frame / suspension / body.It's really a "Semi-Gloss" like the cans say.The best part:I kinda "rubbed it out" with Lemon Pledge and a dish scrubbing pad--and it looked great! People still don't believe it's done with spray cans---plus it has a pleasant lemon scent!

    How did you like the Hot Rod Flatz?
    I was thinking of using them this time around,
    they have a ton of flat colors.. I want to try one out.

    Also , all my past flat jobs have only been washed with soap and water, never waxed.

    What is the PPG number of the flat black? What is the year/make/manufacturer paint code? Been checkin' into flat blacks and all the paint supply stores tell me that you can't get flat black in single stage. Only two stage with a flat clearcoat.

    My car was recently stripped, then primed, I love the look and cannot afford a big $$ paint job now. I don't want to leave it in bare primer so I plan to spray it flat black at home and get a real paint job a few years from now. If the John Deere paint cannot be painted over, how about the ppg hot rod black or the trim paint? Any other suggestions?
     
  26. Not a truck that fits this website, but it is painted satin black, using single-stage enamel.

  27. Flat black is like flames -- looks good on almost anything and never goes out of style.

    Ive used rustoleum with a reducer for oil based paint ( walmart actually has good prices on quart cans of rusto and the gallon of oil based reducer). 4 quarts and a gallon of reducer is all you need. Use a paint gun and compresser, looks ten times better then rattle can. It holds up well.

    And prep the car just as you were going to really paint it. 200-400-600 grit, not a pro but this has always worked for me when using the rusto.
