they look pretty good. if you go to do it yourself tho, remember to take a refreshment break AFTER doing the work. back in my teens a friend and i decided to go this route with our cars after a mutual patch-it job on both vehicles. my olds delta 88 came out not bad in rustoleum blue but we stopped for some beer before tackling his car. ( note word SOME)

anyone ever seen a hornet stationwagon in monochrome rustoleum brown? they say rustoleum will stick to anything and it is true....it stuck to the bumpers, the grille , the woodgrain panelling on the side, the back windows ( we had this idea for a panel wagon ). picture a turd with headlights and windshield wipers. really not the best thing to see the morning after.

so just remember boys and girls...PAINT FIRST.....BEER LATER!

id drive down there and kick you ***! it wouldnt look good at all, not saying you wouldnt be able to make it nice and shiny but the color would look BAD, dont forget, your color choices are limited to solid colors only (no metalics)

it really pains me on a personal level to see all that, because i know in person those cars cant look as good as in the pics... i have a cupboard at work painted that exact same way and its as smoth as hell but duller the ****, and no amount of polishing will make it any better

i had better stop before i get myself angery

I agree, this won't look as good as the traditional paint job, but if you are strapped for cash this looks like a darn good substitute. Check out pictures in this page of the thread, as well as the next page.
