Why go to all the trouble to build a nice looking rod and then see how cheap you can paint it. Look at a compressor and paint gun as an investment. I hope this is not your last car because it looks like you went to a lot of trouble to build it. The paint is what makes the rod complete. I know you have a budget but you are not going to be happy with a half *** job. How much more is it going to cost you to get a compressor and gun and do the job right. Try renting a compressor and buying a gun. After all the work you have put in on the car I am sure you can figure out how to get a compressor. Your cost is going to be in the paint and if you make a mistake it is non recoverable. Do you belong to any clubs around that has equipment. Join one and make friends with people who may have a used compressor that you could pickup, or could help you in the painting. Just one old mans opinion
