TRIUMPH STAG HANDPAINTED WITH COMBICOLOR RUSTOLEUM AND A ROLLER
Handpainted with several ordinary domestic gloss roller, a Triumph Stag.
Paint is custom mixed carmine red oil based Combicolor Rustoleum. no
orange peel after colour sanding. 2 years on: No fade, no chips, and a
shine to die for. Cost? About £250 including all materials. Could be done
cheaper, but I'm a perfectionist. Done a panel at a time in a small garage
attached to house ( which I why I could not spray ). No smell, no hassle
from wife. Front panel shows paint color sanded with 1500 grit before
polished with Meguiars DA electrical orbital polisher.

Honda Civic EG 92-95 satin black hammerite respray
I bought a cheap car and the arches were bubbling so thought it deserved a
cheap respray. In america I believe the paint is called rustoleum and in
England its Hammerite. Its basically an oil based paint. I prepped the car
by hand then thinnned down the hammerite with cellulose thinners before
spraying. All in all im pretty chuffed with the outcome
Rustoleum Roller Paint Job Done On The Cheap $50 1985 Mustang Convertible 5.0
Here you'll learn how to paint a car for less than $50. Dubbed the
Rustoleum Roller Paint Job. Here's the supplies you'll need:
1-2 Quarts Rustoleum Gloss Paint (Your choice of color)
Gallon (or less) Mineral Spirits
A couple sponge foam paint brushes and / or bristle brushes
4 inch Foam Roller set.
Mix the Rustoleum and the mineral spirits at a 75% to 25% ratio. Or, 3
cups rustoleum, 1 cup mineral spirits. Mix together and roll on. If your
looking for a better finish, you'll spend more time putting on more coats.
If that's what your wanting, make the ratio approx 60 / 40.
This is what my Mustang
looked like before and after a single coat of 75 /25 mix. I'll need to
apply a second coat. Then it should be finished. Quick, cheap and easy.
Tomorrow I'm laying down new pinstriping and taping off the hood for a
stripe to go down the middle.
How To Do A Rustoleum Roller Paint Job For $70 And A Cheap Way to Fix Rust Holes $20
For $100 I put a quick patch job on this tired old Chevy Truck and plan to
flip a quick buck. Rolled on a coat of Rustoleum and patched up the huge
rust holes in the cab corners. They're notorious for rusting out. Got
some aluminum flashing for housing ($10), buy the guttering dept in Lowes,
Home Depot, etc. It's thin and easily shaped and cut with standard
scissors. Clean the rust deposits out from the site. Set some jack stands
down. Cut a piece of the thin aluminum to length and set it on top of the
jackstands almost touching the rusted area. Get a can of High Strength
Window sealent or Great Stuff ($4 at home depot) as it's called. Start
foaming the area in and piling layer over layer of sealent on top of the
aluminum. Once it is built up, fold the aluminum up and set jack stands
over to keep it help up. The foam will expand and is extremely sticky when
wet. Wear gloves! Once it's had a day to set, pull off the aluminum and
saw off the excess with a hack saw blade or knife. Sculpt it to form and
check the results. Can drill out holes in the aluminum, place it on and
put screws to hold the aluminum on the foam once dryed.
