  • Paint your car with a roller??

    I just looked at my brother's copy of the most recent issue of Hot Rod Magazine and there is an article about painting a car with Rustoleum type paint using a roller and even a foam brush. They said it was very labor intensive, but very cheap. Paint,and supplies about $100.00. Not something a person would used on a show car ,but very presentable. Check it out.[:0]

    We talked about it in a thread a few months back, and a few folks tried it.

        We yacked a while back about the website that started this 'soon to be overdone' craze (a fad that should go away along with fake patina and suede paint jobs)...
        I am awaiting with great anticipation the roller brush guy that takes the ultimate shortcut on poor painting practices and just blows popcorn on the car like they do on ceilings[:0]

                Well Jeff, that already exists, its called Earl Schieb! Seriously once I looked at cars a Earl Schieb painted in their shop parking lot and those cars had so much orange peel it looked like the textured ceiling paint!

                    I had a friend that worked there for a while.
                    He said they had the greatest paint he had ever seen.
                    He said it covered leaves, grass, dirt, sand, and rust.
                    And he was dead serious![:0]

                        They do mention in the article that they tried this because of the buzz they had heard about it. I knew a guy a few years back that painted his daughter's S-10 with Rustoleum using a spray gun and it looked really good. Some of us were wondering how it would hold up, but unfortunately someone stole it a week later. The last we heard it was in Laredo,Texas where the thief was arrested stealing gas. The owner decided it wasn't worth enough to go after.

                            In the late '70's I had a '46 M15A (with a Commander 6 []) that I was going to sell. It had some surface rust and peeling paint. A local hardware store was closing so I bought a pack of sandpaper, a quart of Rustoleum paint, a brush and masking tape all for less than $10.00. I taped it up, sanded it down and slapped on battleship grey primer. To tell the truth, it looked pretty good when I got done.
