What I had in the Geo Tracker $450 bought at the auction $50 for an alternator $50 in paint and supplies and another $50 for misc. Bought the wing for $40 at a local junkyard. Came off a 1987 Firebird. $15 for a caliper and $15 for a couple cans of clear coat. I should be able to get $1500 for it come tax time.
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.

Gettin' Stupid in my $500 1985 Mustang 5.0 Convertible Rustoleum Roller Paint Job Soon
Me bein' ignarent in my new toy. Bought a 1993 Geo Tracker at the
strawtown auction for a final Bid of $450, did a $50 fix up on it (paint) .
Traded a guy my '93 Tracker for this '85 Mustang. Think I got the better end
of this bargain, that Tracker wasn't the greatest. Plans for this one is
to paint the lower 1/2 of the car from the trim down black. There will be
a big white stripe where the hood is raised. It will be continued over
through the trunk and down as well. Will accent the faded pin striping
again. Paint and supplies should cost around $50. I'll do a before,
during and after post up on the paint scheme.

Latest $50 Cheap Paint Job Rustoleum Roller 1997 Chrysler Sebring Convertible
Here is my latest $50 paint job. Gloss Black Rustoleum Roller job on a
1997 Chrysler Sebring Convertible. Behind the Sebring is my 1989 Ford
F-350 that I also did a rustoleum roller paint job on also. They both look
so much better than they did before. Got the Sebring by trading for my
1997 Chevy Cavalier LS. Had to do a few fixes to the Sebring like an
intake manifold gasket, it had a vacuum leak and idled high. Fixed that
and now it runs great. Still need to replace the passenger lower ball
joint though. Have @ $700 in it now. Sell it for @$1200.

Here is the 3rd installment of the Rustoleum Roller Paint Job Project.
Turning out real nice and moving along quickly. Not done yet, think I'll

smoother finish and a better shine. Once the foam is dry, I'll sculpt it
and set aluminum flashing over it with screws through it to hold it on.
Stay tuned to see how this thing comes out. I'll show some before and
