rustoleum paint or summit ss acrylic urethane
 
1 Attachment(s)
My 91 chevy stepside is in need of some sort of paint job I want it to be black.
Should I just spray some rustoleum proffesional paint on it or
Should I just sand all the clear off and scuff the paint then spray some single stage summit racing acrylic urethane on it?

I would reccomend against Rustoleum. There basic 'protective coating' has no UV inhibitors, is Alky'd enamel and is not really meant for this use. If you step up to there professional line, it is basically the same. If yo step up to there urethane product, it is nearly the same cost as the Summit paint.. FWIW, Summit pain is Kirker, and decent paint, but also www.tcpglobal.com has there 144 kits, which is 144 colors to choose from for $144 for the kit ( material to paint A vehicle ). the price may be diffrent now, but they have decent cheap paint.

work or yard truck, or something u drive every day?
if its somethign u wanna just throw paint on id do the rustoleum, if ur going to keep it a while etc use the summit paint

edit

the black camaro nexto my name that says last picture is a camarop that was painted with black rustoleum. no prep work at all they just slapped it on there with no wetsanding or polishing and it came out pretty good.

they didnt bother with the extra work to make it look real good cause the car is being built for the 24 hours of lemons races

This one has raised a lot of conflict. Here is a post to read: http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/ulti...nt-209134.html

Sending this to the lounge, it really has no technical merit, just opinion based.

the rustoleum take some work to get it to look good, id take a look at some os the rusto threads and then make ur decision.even though im doing the rusto paint now, im striping mine off in the spring to have the car sprayed metalic blue and silver, both of which are summit single stage paints
