No picts, My nephew won a second place at the Grand National Roadster Show with a car that he painted the instrument panel and gage cluster with a rattle can.

One of my mentors in the hot rod world painted a Buick powered T bucket with rattle cans and it was in the Grand National Roadster show here in Oakland in the mid sixties. I have a fender at work that I painted with the 2K in a can clear and it still looks like the day I shot it four years ago.

This is all fine and good but to paint a "car" any decent sized body with rattle cans makes no sense what so ever in that the amount of cans it would take will cost you more than buying a small compressor, a paint gun and real paint.

I'd rather prep out a car myself and take it to Maaco before I use a rattle can.wouldn't cost much more than the rattle cans. About a month ago I did this car that had black out tape everywhere on the upper part of the door but we couldn't locate one of the pieces. It was a piece that's in the door jamb and doesn't see sun so I masked it off and sprayed some trim black. It actually looked really good.

Last year I did an article on rattlecan painting. It appeared in American Iron magazine.
I tried out several different brands, and Duplicolor was BY FAR the best and easiest to use.
If you're going to use spray cans, check out Duplicolor.

JoAnn, have you tried the 2K rattle cans of epoxy, filler (ISO free) or urethane clear coats? I am not kidding you, they are DAMN impressive in performance.

Compressor-less all aerosol repair review.

That was 4 years ago, it has sat up on the roof of the shop and it still looks like the day it was shot!

speaking of index finger, I hate when I'm spraying guide coat and my finger somehow gets in the way of the fan and makes a mess out of the tip and my finger. That said, a lot of restoration companies out there rattle can small parts with trim black. Lots more than they'd admit.
