Default arrgggg! i'll kill them all! looks like time for paint.

so elizabeth got keyed this morning. arseholes... anyway between the keying and the gian t rust spots, it looks like she'll be getting a really cheap paint job. probably flat balck.

i'd like to most if not all of the work myself. possibly even doing the rust-o-leum roll on paint jobs (i've actually seen them come out well)

anyone tried this, or have any tips for me?

I've seen the rustoleum job on another site. I wanna say it was a white corvair? It had held up for over a year. Just gotta take the time to do it right.

Yup, a corvair...

That actually looks pretty good. Hard to believe it'* a roll on job.

Marik, do you have a garage? If so, shoot a real coat of paint on it. Rustoleum is for farm equipment and patio gear.

Actually, Don was talking about learning to paint, perhaps he would want to use yours as a practice "canvas"

Curt... If the Doc lets me go back to work.... Then I get the Taxes back... I will learn real fast how to paint... Dupont white( 8554 ) is $78 a gallon.... Dupont clear is $70 a gallon... I think the primer is same...

Medium Garnet Red is $178 a gallon

I think I will try to learn with white... Doesn't show mistakes soo bad


Where did your car get Keyed Marik?

Yeah, that truly sucks doesn't it. All the really cool metallic colors are like that... GM Polo Green Metallic is a three stage paint and was just as pricey. (I dread doing the facias, front fenders, and hood on the '94 Camaro, It'* got the damn "Ecxema" of pealing clear coat and oxidized metallic like every other GM from the '90s.)

while white hide a lot it is not very easy to shoot. **** my car was white before i painted it blue and i NEEDED to do guide coats upon initial sanding it because i could not see ****. white going on is very difficult because you need to know the pattern of the gun well, it is almost like painting blind.

i have a white car i need to paint and i am not looking foward to doing so.
