hand washing can cause scratches if a vehicle is really dirty... turtle wax is crap. the only reason you would use somthing like that is because it is so rough, it will cut the white haze off the finish

no im calling people lazy because they dont take the time to wash there cars right .car washes are the lazy mans way.besides car washes are any paint jobs nightmare.take your time soak your car with water to rince the dirt off then use a sponge to wash youll get all those nooks and cranys.then rince and let dry .take out your dads buffer and turtle wax your car.this should take you about an hour and a half and youll have a better looking car then if you take it to a car wash .never owned a vynel dash every car ive owned had a plastic or metal dash with fabric or leather seats.used leather softner for those.but good to know about armorall.

just for your information, I actully do handwash my vehicles, I have a buffer, regardless, I do not use it much at all. I use Mothers Carnuba wax and hand wax it.. turtle wax is crap wax.. If my vehicle is overly dirty, like road salt in the winter or from driving down dirt roads, then I go to the car wash and preassure wash it.. if you hand wash over that, then your going to scratch the paint because the dirt is abrasive...

but I do not see what any of this has to do with rustoleum

thats the only photo i have as he sold the truck abou 4 months ago i still see it know and then driving in town
im not sapporting using rustoleum im just saying you can get a good paint job with the stuff and if you treaT it RIGHT itll last for a whill. this is my choice to paint my truck with this stuff . i cant afford the equipment and paint. i live on $600 a month before rent and bills. dont have a garage to spray the good stuff .i can sand any junk that falls in the paint with rustoleum .my truck has allot of rust and rustoleum stops rust in its tracks.rustoleum pro does have a uv inhibitor.if i did have the equipment and a better truck i would do a flame job because thats what im known for i used to live in florida my step dad owned batmans paint and body and i worked there in the early 90s he had me do the air brushing and pinstriping because i had stedy hands and i liked to go crazy on detail.all be it it was 16 years ago since i was in a paint booth. i only done a few whole paint jobs from start to finish but have done allot of finishing touches on allot of cars.if you got the equipment use the proper paints if you dont and your truck is a beater go wild have fun with the rustoleum pro paint .im doing a bumble bee paint job.the only reason im mad is because every body is *****ing that rustoleum is crap which is not the case done properlly the stuff will last and look good.

Rustoleum test

Ok guys I tried it..painted a car with Rustoleum from the local hdwre store. The candidate for this was the car we call the Hamburgler which is a 79 Camaro which came around as a Yard find..has a 396 and T-top and some work done to make it a drag car but hardly complete..Someone had started to paint the car at one time and it had a failed job which will need to be stripped anyway so using this car for a paint test is an Ok thing.

We bought 2 quarts of black from the local hardware store. First thing I found is that the paint out of the can has the consistency of Molasses and no way is this stuff going to go through a normal automotive spray gun. I kept reducing the paint in order to get it to shoot and wound up at a one to one ratio of reducer to paint..

Now for shooting the paint i found at one to one reduction it did not cover well at all and when I tried to hammer the paint I got lots of runs..so now I know this is going to take 2-3 laps around the car to get it even in coverage..with recoat times of 4 hours or more it will take 2-3 days to get this thing done.like shooting one coat per day and sanding between coats..Maybe we might get to something that looks decent..Well sorta decent..

Overall results.. waste of time..next time I paint it will be with SPI primers and some decent base coat from somewhere..

Nuff said
Sam
