Great for cars you beat on. I'd rather spend money on go fast parts.
John Deere Blitz Black is $28.00 a gallon.

poncho62 Far from a dead subject....I was just stressing that there are various thoughts on the subject and that the pros seem to have one idea on the subject...the amateurs seem to have another.....and agreement is never going to happen......much like the rat rod/hot rod debates.......

chevy302builder18 With acrylic's that makes it very easy to dry or harden, that would make it also very easy to take UV lights to the base coat, hmm very intresting. I dont think its as easy as i described it though? No baking on or clear coat finish? I seen some cheap paint for base coating and a clear coat from summit, anyone ever use this paint? Opinions on that, and experiences.
And again if anyones ever used that rustoleum as there hot rods base coat, spare no dirty details

winginit for painting at home acrylic lacquer works well IMO

chevy302builder18 I think it would be pretty awsome to pull off good looks with spray can paint job. Whats the cons of spray can enamel? Does it not last as long or something?

OneMoreTime I will say most of the older guys have made the aquaintance of other rodders in their local area who help each other in the various aspects of building a car to include the painting. Spray cans and the industrial materials have been used for something that is not of show quality and just needs some paint.

poncho62 If you are asking if we have done a home paint job?....Yes, quite a few, years ago. A couple with BC/CC, but mostly with mid grade automotive enamels. I even did a couple with Rustoleum, but just for winter beaters or snowplow trucks. I would cover all my tools etc with plastic and use my garage with box fans in the windows blowing out.

I have a decent sized compressor, some decent quality spray guns and almost decent breathing apparatus.......Because of this, I dont do it anymore.

Lots of people have done the spray can thing as you call it, if it was a success, you would have to ask the people that did it, to see if they liked it or not.
