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.

more buffing and polishing left to do i ran out of steam for a little while
Datsun 510 wagon 2 hour $100.00 Rustoleum paint job (non roller)
Check my channel out for other projects:
This was a Datsun 510 wagon that I purchased from a man who had left it in
the woods behind his shop since the early eighties. I got it running after
replacing the fuel lines, rebuilding the carb, cleaning out the gas tank,
replacing the spark plugs, changing the oil, and replacing all replaceable
parts in the brake system. I wanted to give this car a basic paint job, but
not spend a lot of money (I have another Datsun 510 wagon that I bought
from Arizona that is receiving a proper full restoration). I decided to
spray it with rustoleum. We bought 2 pints (Safety Yellow and Safety Red)
and mixed them together to make an orange. The paint was sprayed through a
cheap gun like the type you would spray a fence with because my body man
did not want to use his real gun on it. I spent about an hour of prep
sanding with a single grit of paper and cleaning / masking. I sprayed bare
rust rustoulem primer. The final product came out nice for the budget, and
the car will survive longer until someone gives it a proper restoration
because the zinc content in rustoleum slows the corrosion process
$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.
