Default $50 Paint Job

I think some of you guys will find this interesting. People are using Rustoleum and rollers to paint their cars.

http://www.rickwrench.com/50dollarpaint.html

Follow the link near the top "$50 Paint Job" which goes to a Mopar site with nearly 100 pages of people using this process. Most of the pics aren't very good, but a few of them look pretty darn good.

Sorry but I apparently don't see your point.

Reading the post you would have found that Haro used a roller on his caravan.

Hmm, guess I missed that. All I saw was stuff about his Bonneville and rockers. I have seen his thread about the van, and no disrespect to his work, but what I saw doesn't compare to what these guys have done.

I would do it! When I get a newer SSEi and (if) I restore the 94, I'd definitely do that. Seems much easier than a spray can.
