2. Stripping a '90 Plymouth Laser Turbo FWD
Bought the engine donor from ebay for $1000 before I realized I would end
up making the Colt project AWD. I drove this car home and the ECU fried
the next day, but the engine was in great shape. PA car, very rusty, this
one took 4 hours because I took a dinner break.
$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.

Ninja 250 Video Blog - Painting (Race Stripes Complete) Part 1
This is the first stage of paint on my 2004 ninja 250. It had some slight
body damage, so I repaired it, and then decided that since I already had
the sander out and a fairing off, I would go ahead and take the rest of the
fairings off, sand them all down, and create a 1 of a kind ninja.
Go ahead and forget about bashing me for using rattle cans, because I know
how to paint to a professional-ish finish with them.
Prep work is the most important (arguably) stage of painting, so I took 3
days total (after my day job, so 6-10pm) sanding and cleaning everything.
This is day 2 of painting, day 1 was primer and matte black. After filming
this, I finished up all the other fairings, but ran low on orange before
getting to the gas tank, so that will be tomorrow.
I will post a video up when I have finished it all showing before I buff
and after I buff.
