Okay, I've managed to stay out of this thread till now, and haven't even read through it all. But let me get this straight, your willing to put on several coats and sand and reapply just to get rustoleum to look good for a short time so it doesn't look like plant machinery, and then strip it back off if you do decide to put autopaint on it. Then worried about cleaning a gun after use. And to actually use good epoxy and 2k material and then use rustoleum over it seems like such a waste to me. How much is time worth for the results achieved. There are some pretty affordable urethanes today that aren't that much more in cost at least for the paint, and although not the best available, I'll put them next to one of those rustoleum jobs and we'll see which one holds up longer. I use to get by okay with a cheap 3 hp 110 model compressor and a cheap conventional gun with modest air requirements, till I acquired better equiptment. And although most people really don't like painting over others prep work and putting there name on it, and what it could do to their rep, but believe it or not there are still people out there that will help someone out for a good meal and some beer or cut some breaks, at least occasionally. There just might still be some people that actually spray for the fun of it, if a compressor and gun is too much for you. Hey, I am as cheap is the next guy, but I am not putting rustoleum on a vehicle. The mechanics back in school seemed to like thier house paint though and rattle can lacquer primer paint jobs. Guess some things never change.

Right here! If you live in western Washington, PM me. I need money for my Rambler! If I get paid enough beer for shooting paint, I can divert my beer funds to the hotrod!

EDIT>>>I got to get out of this dang cast first though. Stoopid broken leg...

It helps if you have a cute daughter or sister too. I remember being a fresh kid out of school and hauling my tools across town and helping another young kid do bodywork on his old ford truck. I moved out of town before it was to the paint stage, but he got a bit of free labor and tools to use. I am not saying you need to have a cute daughter or sister to convince someone to help you out, but it just might help tip the scales,

If you use warmed up paint cans be sure you use good saftey glasses. They can come apart. I've used that method on my big model airplanes works great.

I 've read all 6 page's of this thread and I noticed we have some pretty opinionated people here. I have a old race car that I want to paint Semi Gloss Black. Fun car, Not a Show car. I sand blasted the undercarriage then painted it with Tremclad Rust paint because that was handy. It then just carried over to the engine compartment and when I was in the engine bay It seemed to make sense to do the area up to the windshield {Cowl, vents } whatever I seem to have committed myself to a Tremclad Paint Job, Good or Bad We'll see. It will live inside my garage mostly with short trips. Some have said the paint goes for a ***** after 6 months or so. I was just thinking if it did, Would a polish and wax bring it back ???

Well, a few months ago I read that entire Mopar thread and I was ready to try it. It has been about two months of engine work, steering, and brakes. I am a full time college student and I work part time for the local school district in Orange County California. I was supposed to be asleep by now but Ive been reading this thread for an hour and its now two in the morning. I am starting the body work tommorrow at 7:00 am and Im working untill evening. The same thing for the next day. By next week I'd like to have my Roll on Rustoleum job done. Ill let you know how it goes and Ill post pictures, as well as update pictures. Im goin' in! We shall see what happens.
I just cant get myself to spend more than 50 bucks when Ive spent 5,000 (my life savings, ahhhh ***** I only live once) on a paint job.

I'll spend money when I have it. And I dont have even $300 or the space to spray on paint. Here' goes!

Looking forward to your "play by play" 1970Chevy and the pictures as well. Keep track of the hours of sanding you have to put in as well. I think a lot of folks are interested in that part.

brush painting

When I was a boy, my grandfather painted his 65 chevy pick-up and his dodge delivery truck matching orange and cream with a paint brush. He had considerable experience with painting as a carpenter and general "fixit" man. Both vehicles looked good and the paint held up well for many years.
