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 4 CUT AND POLISHED
ok. Step by step what I did to get this done so far for this video.
1. Go to Harbor Freight tools and buy a variable speed rotary polisher with
kit for 32 bucks, get the 2 year warranty for 9 bucks, now thats a good
deal for the kit.
2. After 4th coat I wet sanded paint with 1500 grit for kicks, then slapped
another coat of paint on top, IT LOOKED 10 TIMES BETTER after painting over
such a smooth surface.
3. Wet sanded with 2000 grit wet dry paper, then polished with 7" foam pad
and polishing compound.
4. Smile ear to ear. :)
5. By the way, why is it when I look at almost every new factory paint job,
they ALL have tremendous amounts of orange peel as compared to mine which
has ZERO orange peel? :P
$50 (rollon) Paint Job with a Flat Sheen
First off this proves you can do any sheen with this technique and second i
will post a "How To" video when i do my truck.
I have heard a lot of buzz about this rollon paint job and i decided to put
it to the test... but I noticed everybody was rolling gloss and I want a
flat look for the truck I'm gonna paint and i couldn't find anyone who had
either done it or tried it. So for those out there like me who want to know
if it works with flat paints.... here ya go.
I bought a pint a flat Rust-Oleum Oil-Base and mixed in some 100% mineral
spirits. Only use mineral spirits with the oil base, do not use lacquer
thinner or anything else. As for latex only use water. I actually came
across a guy that had rolled flat black latex house paint... I would never
do that but it possible.
I know I didn't provide mixtures and techniques but that's not what I
wanted to show. For those interested in doing this go to
www.rollyourcar.com or www.moparts.com and search the web board for "paint
job on a budget". I hope this helps some people out and maybe freshin up
your car for 50 bucks in stead of 2500!!
Also the welder is under my eBay name my04chevyjunior. Bidding started at
$79.99. Works just fine. If interested i can post a video with it
RATE PLEASE!! Ask any questions you leave comments. Thank ya.

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
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
