50 Dollar paint job Rustoleum O YEAH Part 1

1988 gmc 3500 Dually, getting started with a REAL cheap paint job. Supplies used: Rustoleum High performance Smoke Gray paint. 4" High Density Foam rollers. 150 grit, 220 grit, 320 grit, 400 grit, 800 grit, 1000 grit, 1500 grit and 2000 grit paper. 100% Odorless Mineral spirits. I mixed them between 2-1 -1-1 ratio of paint to spirits. So far no runs whatsoever, no bubbles, nice glass finish after 2 coats. If your getting runs in the paint, you are applying it too thick, or have used too much mineral spirits in the mix. Update to paint job has been uploaded check it out :)

50 Dollar paint job O YEAH Part 2(UPDATE)
Okay changed paint to Gloss Smoke Gray, has much better shine than Smoke Gray. 2 coats on so far with super fine foam 4" roller. Things are looking pretty good. Still have to finish bodywork, but thats pretty easy. Roof, truck bed rail, and bottom of truck which is dark blue right now will be painted a Gloss Maroon or something close to that. Hopefully all will work out. For all the people that say wet sanding every 2 coats is hard?!? It's not hard at all, use a hose not a bucket and get a 3m rubber hand sanding block for your paper. I plan on very lightly wet sanding this 2nd coat with 600 grit wet/dry paper. After 4th coat I will wet sand again with 800 grit wet/dry paper, I will post another video to show you the results. So far I'm into it for 36 bucks :)

How to paint your car with Rustoleum. The right way.
I've been asked to make this vid a million times. So here it is. This is a how-to regarding the 'Rustoleum technique'. I go over everything from mixing the paint to applying a clear coat. It takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, but if you have the determination, you can get great results. Sorry about the repetitive audio. Youtube muted my original audio so I had to change it quick.
