Why not try rolling some color as well?
If it won't lay down smooth enough to sand out, you could spray it on later.
Good idea; I suggested this very thing at the beginning of the thread.

Prouect89, why not try this on a panel, maybe the trunk lid, and compare
the results to the Rustoleum. The automotive paint will be more expensive
but will be permanent and save a lot of work later. It will be fuel proof,
durable and permanent. It can be brushed, rolled, or sprayed, as long as
it's not a metallic. You can reduce it to the consistency you need.

All this talk of rolling, sanding, buffing, and then having to strip it off in the
spring is making me tired just reading about it.....

Current pricing on SPI epoxy primer is now $20.22 a quart when purchased in the gallon units. the cheap stuff is that much so why would I use anything but the epoxy primer? H'mmm

Some peel but good shine. The acoustic tile ceiling doesn't help! Should look good after wet sanding/buffing. Which paint is this again?

only a tiny bit of peel this time around nowhere near as bad as the blue was. alot of it is dust getting in the paint as well but it does wetsand right out
the black is the rustoleum mixed 50/50 with mineral spirits, i wetsanded that coat and just hit it with another coat not to long ago, this next coat is looking even better.

just wish i could keep the dust and dirt off the paint while it was drying, but im doing this on my front porch so i just have to deal with it

looks liek i still have some sanding scratches so when this new coat dries ill wetsand it and hit it one or 2 more times and it should be done.

haha that thought crossed my mind but im going to have the car sprayed with the metalic blue and silver still,when i first started the thought was slap it on and make it look somewhat decent just to get threw the winter.

but im having alot of fun making it look as good as i can,and the more i do it the nicer its comming out. so instead of just getting it on the car im taking my time and going to get it to look as nice as i possibly can.

so far its been a pretty fun learning experiance,and looking foward to getting more of the car done.got a single coat on a spare rear bumper cover i have and the results are pretty damn close to the hood

I have done the following with great results, on one of my projects, I stripped car panel by panel to bare metal, used the phosphoric acid treatment, and then shot on Rustoleum primer with my elcheapo HF gravity fed HVLP gun. The primer was reduced with Dupont Medium Speed Acrylic enamel reducer, about 25% reducer 75% primer, 3 coats, allowing primer to flash between coats.
After a curing period of about 3 weeks, I then used all fillers, and 2k high build urethane primer/surfcer, this was blocked , then I used an industrial high gloss alkyd enamel to topcoat, mix ratio 8 parts paint, 4 parts reducer, 1 part hardner, 3 coats, allowing to flash between coats.
This was near 3 years ago, paint is super shiny, no peeling, no issues, and very durable. Last year I painted the Fulton Visor, with a different lot of paint, it was dead-on match, and the older paint on the car, is just a shiny. I have to to cut and polish this paint job, it is quite decent for a super low budget paint job.

i spent 15 hours preping and painting the spare rear bumper cover i had and went to install it on the car, just to find out its the wrong bumper cover.

it was for an 82-84 without ground effects,im mad at myself for not catching it and just generally pissed off at the car right now so its been sitting, havent done a thing except remove the side mouldings off the doors and fenders.

but ill get back to it this weekend prolly

the hood has been snowed on iced up washed off etc and it still looks good
