This IS Hotrodders.com isn't it, not autobody101com.
I read many posts here where a lot of the members like the rat rod thing.
In my opinion rustoleum paint jobs fit the rat rod era perfect.. no wrong way to do a rat rod, its always going to be a junker.

Those flat, horizontal surfaces look pretty good! Now on to the curves and vertical and past-vertical surfaces.

i had the hood proped up on a 45* angle while applying the paint to make it easier to see since i only have a single light bulb on my porch.

i did find out it does like to try to run a lil bit but that was my fault for putting it on to thick so im slightly adjusting my method of application and getting better and better results everytime.

i just applied the second recoat after the wetsand soon as it flashes over ill snap some more pics

now if i can get rid of the few sanding scratches thats in the hood i dont think it will look bad at all once its buffed out. hell it looks good the way it is, but im going to treat this like its the paint that staying on the car, full wetsanding and buffing when done, and wetsand/blocking inbetween coats

That Rustoleum is gonna fail...in a couple years. Sorry, I couldn't resist. you've got more gumption and chicharones than I. To be willing to go to the effort of painting, sanding and polishing only to remove it next spring with more elbow grease just shows you're more determined to have a cool ride than most of us are. Do you have some posts elsewhere on here of the twin hairdryers? I really like that body style F-body and am anxious to see some progress pics. As that Rustoleum dries(days in the 90's) it'll get harder and polish a bit better. I've used it on one paint job and I made it look terrible, you're already light years ahead of my one Rustoleum paint job.
Kudos to you,
Chip.

I have to give you a Big for not giving up... That right there tell's me a lot about you... It's coming a long and your not giving up no matter what... The Motor is really looking like it will give you a good ride for sure.. I used this once on a frame and added a wet look hardener and it came out super nice and lasted a very long time... I just can't remember what kind of hardener it was... But It did work.....
I sent you a PM..

thanks guys, the motor should make more power then i can used when its set on kill, my buddies combo in a transam is almost identical to mine, i have +5 ci larger turbos and better cyl heads put down over 900rwhp @ 23 pounds of boost, in addition to that i have a 2 stage nitrous kit to be installed still 25shot first stage with an additional 75 shot second stage. so im looking to put down 4digit rear wheel numbers when set on kill and for the street ill keep boost around 12-15 pounds

ill run the car a few times a year at las vegas speedway,rmr up in salt lake city, and once or twice a year on the boneville salt flats.

i messed up my final coat of paint last night as it went on extra thin in a few spots and u can see it now that it dried, so im debating on wetsanding it later today and doing one final recoat, r leave it as is for a few days to fully harden then wetsand and buff the crap out of it and see if it knocks down nice and flat.

im thinking if i let it harden and then do it it will knock flat in the 2-3 spots were it went on a lil thin, if not i can always go back later and put another coat on

my other concern is the temps outside are ranging between 50-60* and at night were hitting low 30*'s so im hoping its not to cold to apply the paint on the rest of the body, though i have thought about going down to the hardware store getting some pvc tubing and tees and a large tarp and building a makeshift tent around the car so i can put a bullet heater or something in there to warm up the car body.
it should be high 50's/60* today so i think im going to try to get the roof done today

im already out of work for the day so once i can get a friend over im going to put the hood back on the car and get some pics of it in the sunlight

That really doesn't make sense- at least to me- when referencing the post you quoted. Are you saying you're afraid someone might disagree w/you, or you don't think you'd get a qualified answer, or ? I mean, it's not like you haven't asked questions here already...
