Depending on where those "imperfections" are, you might be able to tape-off a section and blend it. If you like the way it looks, keep it that way. There's no right or wrong way to do what makes YOU happy.

Besides, I'll almost guarantee you that if you try to strip/prep that body for "normal" paint, you'll find out how wavy the bodywork really is. One of the reasons for using "flat" colors is to hide imperfections. As soon as you put a shine on it...it ends up looking like crap. In fact, just get some soapy water and wipe it on...especially from the fenderwells, and down. You'll see it. I can already see it in the pics you posted.

This i think helps me understand why stuff like this would be used.

I was thinking about this all morning and I have owned so many cars, that in both FL and GA I have had to have a dealer license and over the years I have never had one car that I cared so little about or hated enough that, I would want to put something like this on it.

I talk to 100's of body shops a month through out Canada, US, Islands and Grenada and not one has ever talked about using stuff like this.

I think it goes back to my earlier post of "pride", some people like the easy and lazy way out and raise their kids the same way, some people buy walmart or Kmart oil for their cars, as they just don't care.

Reason this post is old and brought back from dead by one of the "original posters", is usually people that would do stuff like this have one of two agendas.

They intentally want to mess up other people because they are a failure, or they want to push the garbage on other people to justify their means. (you can read this in Mopars writings, sticks out like a sore thumb.) In your face.
Glad it works for you guys!! Its your car, If your happy, I'm happy!

NOTE!
To any of you that want to learn "how to paint guys", pay no attention to this post, seek other advice or continue reading the forums.

Rustoleum is good for a few things, but not anything in automotive refinishing, altho I have painted things like brake masters with it... it's great for metal patio furniture, and for a beginner practicing setting up the gun and spray pattern, as it's cheap...

I have wondered about using factory implement paint, like New Holland blue or Case red right from the dealership.. but I use Acrylic enamel because it's cheap, easy to spray auto paint. not sure as I would try the implement paint

Hey Shine, how's that honey wagon you got, did the paint fall off yet.
I hear Duplicolor and Rustoleum works good a seeding time, heck throw the ammonia away, buy this stuff as you say it is just Turd anyway, heck buy Turdclad, and give that ole honey wagon a paint and flame job.
Okay Okay I'm only jokin.
So tell me Shine, what makes better mash, corn or potatoes, or rye. Heck if you make it good enough, it may be a good reducer for painting that old spreader ...........LOL Hope the revial of this thread did not cause you to need a swig out the hooch jug

I am trying to figure why you made this post. If it is to antagonize, enuff is enuff. Joking around is just that...joking around. Opinions are opinions, respect goes a long way around here. Keep the dialogue civilized or we'll shut it down. If you dug this old post up just to piss someone off, you've succeeded. Dan

this is just a loosing battle.. those who do use it just need to justify there reasons for using it... as long as those knowledgeable know it's no good, I think we can leave it at that... this issue got brought up on another forum where a member painted his truck with it, and admittidly has faded pretty bad over the year.. I mentioned it was no good, but people refrenced his truck, which still looks good, but definitely faded. I just gave up on the issue

Not taking any sides in this debate....I am just going to make an observation.......Seems to me, that the people who push these "Rustoleum, Tremclad, brush, roller, sponge brush, etc, etc, etc",,,,paint jobs come on this board.....and other boards, talking only of their ideas.....and contribute nothing or little else to the boards.......I just wonder what is their motivation in all this, since it seems to consume their whole train of thought......

To me, its just weird.....or maybe \i am just weird for thinking that someone would care this much about something.

while I do respect your point, other people have theirs...I am the mad scientist kind of guy and I am willing to try this new 50$ paint job, I guess it will be much cheaper(spare car door I have) but its for fun, as in nicaragua we have cheap(20$ gallon kit) Polyurethane auto paint(its local) heck even Sherwin W have a 40$ gallon kit(Central american) while I do like how enamels work for a rooky like me, they are just not that durable but very very cheap.....heck we still have Lacquer around here and with lead...

Hey poncho, I agree with you, but I don't recall pushing any roller/brush/tremclad/rustoleum paint job. Just what I did when I shot on Industrial Enamel fortifed with hardener, nothing more,nothing less.
Maybe I should have started a new thread, again my point was to show what this type (old type syn enamel), would look like in a years time, nothing more nothing less...........MC

Dinger go back and read what my first re-post stated, just showing what my synthetic enamel paint, with hardener looks like a year later, nothing more nothing less.
It was sprayed on, not brushed, not rolllered, not Rustoleum, okay.
I was only joking around with Shine, he knows what I mean by the manure spreader thing.
I do not remeber you jumping in last year, when Old Red became abusive and degrading to me in a thread back then, again I took that witha grain of salt, no hard feelings If you would like to shut it down go ahead, to be honest I have never really been welcomed on this board to date............

Exactly, they are trying to justify it to themselves otherwise they would not continue to insist to people who know better.

Take this for what its worth, but you guys keep jumping on Mopar for showing his enamel paint job. I know of several restoration shops who use this paint because thats what the customer wants there car sprayed in. They want it to look original. Those paints didn't shine like paints do now. Didn't have the depth. Maybe he should have started another thread instead of bringing this old one back to life. His posts really have nothing to do with Rustoleum. His mistake. I might be wrong, but I dont think he would be getting jumped on then. Alot of you guys have continually said how lots of people and even professional have left because of this crap, but have you stopped and thought about how many people have left because of YOU guys! I know several that have because they said some guys on here are VERY opinionated and think THEY know it all and call people names and gang up on them if they dont like their way of thinking. I have never seen the hatred some of you guys possess. You would think that you guys that have been here for a long time would actually do like you say and ENCOURAGE people to be here. I have also never seen moderators LET things get this way. Poncho, by you NOT stopping the name calling by the older posters, you ARE taking sides. I know another site that would have locked this thread 6 pages ago and given warning to SEVERAL regular posters no matter WHO they are!
