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 :)
"Rust-Oleum" Paint Job Day 1
After reading about this technique from the Moparts forum, I decided to
finally give it a try.

DIY Carburetor Synchronize / Balance Tool
This is a homemade bottle style carburetor synchronization tool ( homemade
manometer ) and balancing tool. If you are going to attempt to, or want to
know how to sync your carburetors, there are a few things to know first.
1. Carburetor Synchronization = Adjusting your carburetor throttle plates
or throttle slides so they move from your carburetors idle setting to wide
open throttle simultaneously, or in sync with each other.
2. Balancing Carburetors = Adjusting your carburetors so they allow each
cylinder to flow or pull the same amount of air and fuel at your desired
idle speed. Carburetor sync and carburetor balancing go hand in hand.
3. Idle speed screw adjustments must be made at normal operation
4. Air fuel mixture screw adjustments must be made at normal operating
5. Air fuel mixture adjustments only affect your carburetors pilot circuit,
which means from idle to part throttle. Air fuel mixture screw adjustments
have zero effect on wide open throttle.
6. Carburetor running rich = Too much gas not enough air.
Carburetor running lean = Too much air not enough gas.
7. Wide open throttle rich or lean conditions are adjusted two ways:
A. Carburetors with throttle slides have a clip on the carburetor main
jet needle. Raising the main jet needle clip drops the needle deeper into
the main jet and will lean the carburetor out. Lowering the main jet needle
clip will raise the needle and enrich your carburetors mix.
B. Carburetors with throttle plates (butterfly style) need to have the
carburetors main jet changed to a larger diameter jet to richen the mix or
a smaller diameter jet to lean your mix.
8. If your engine will not idle correctly or your air fuel mixture screws
seem to have no affect on the engine at idle, then most likely your pilot
jet circuit is clogged and you should clean it.
The snowmobile in the video is a 1986 Arctic cat cougar 500 fan cooled, it
has Mikuni vm34 roundslide carburetors which have a primer nipple on the
engine side of the throttle slide. Perfect place to attach a homemade
manometer to balance everything. These mikuni vm34 roundslide carburetors
were common on many motorcycles, snowmobiles and atv's. Suzuki, yamaha,
polaris, arctic cat, all used them at one time or another, they are good
carburetors when they are dialed in.

EF Sedan $50 PaintJob

heres the actually $50pb thread where everyone post their works

my collection of $50 pj's
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
