Wink On a paint budget? $50.00 paint job

Hi,

Not my work, however, I found this posting in a Mustang Forum sometime
back and thought it should get out there for those who like to do there own
thing and like to save money. Its the most affordable paint job out there.

Mix the Rustoleum (Tremclad = Rustoleum) paint 50/50 with mineral spirits,
and used a 4" wide, high density foam roller.

Using the mineral spirits slows the flash and lets the paint self level very
well. 2 coats - wet sand, 2 coats - wet sand, 2 coats - wet sand, let cure and
then finish.

It looks as good as a single stage acrylic.
As with all paint jobs, prep is 90% of the result.

Rudy

Being a specialist repairer in Australia, i get to see what is done to cars in the states.

What you describe actually sounds like a PREMIUM paint job....surely you can get something cheaper.



LMAO

Cheers

and it costs 200 bucks for a sprayer and a gallon of single step urethane that requires no wet sanding and will look 20x better.
