$ 50 paint job!!

hello there my fellow ranger friends , i recently discovered a way to paint your vehicle for approximately $50 !!

here is the link i hope it works !!

Rickwrench, Alfa GTV, Falcon Squire, Corvair just click the $50 1966 corvair link


this guy painted his Corvair with Rustoleum gloss white protective enamel. and after 3 years still has a great looking car .. u thin the Rustoleum 50/50 with mineral spirits, and use a foam roller ??? sounds weir but this guy has much more paint jobs under his belt than mine so check it out .

I will try it out soon and post results

I'd enjoy seeing it. For some reason I feel like someone did this on a yellow Splash back in the day.

I saw the Corvair in the link quite some time ago. It's impressive what it turned out as.

That looks like a lot of work, but turns out great for the price

I think I'm going to try it on one of my motorcycles.
I've been itching to have one painted a blue toyota color, now is my chance to save money and do it myself.

wow Grenth, thanks so much for that link! there is a wealth of information there.
Now I just need to find out what kind of base I need to put down on the plastic parts to make the paint stick.

im not sure but in the past i used to use an adhesive promoter called "Bulldog" it bonds many topcoats to plastic, primer as well im not sure though as the rustoleum is oil based ... but on the Rolledon.com forum there is a prep area i believe ... im not 100% sure they talked about plastics there as of yet ill check it out and do some research :) im glad i can help
