Roll on paint job

Figured id throw up a couple pics and show what ive got goin on.

My car= rusty 500$ pile of gt goodness. The body is toast ive got rotted fenders, rotted trunk, rotted roof/windsheild, and rockers

But does that mean i have to drive around looking like i just came out of a swamp? I think not!

So here is my rustoleum gloss sail blue roll on paintjob. I did standard prep and fixed what rust holes i could with a grinder/jb weld steel stik/ and some bondo.

Sanded whole car with 120g on an orbital sander, cleaned very well with mineral spirits and went to town.

Paint is mixed 50/50 and 60/40 ish im not doing this by exact measurements. Then rolled on. Im on coat 3 as of right now, i plan to put down another coat today and possibly 3 or 4 more total.

You can see how uniform it lays down, plenty of orange peel and i am doing this in an apartment parkinglot so there is also plenty of bugs and dirt in it. But its staying pretty smooth to the touch and once done i think the ending finish sand and polish will make this glossy color pop like crazy..


Also a set of crown vic wheels im resurrecting from the junk yard!

Did someone say roll on paint?







My first mx6 went through 3 colors, one sprayed on and two rolled on. For how little effort I put into it, it lasted very well.

I love that color!!! Yeah i finished the rolling on its been curing for two weeks now since ive been busy, im almosy ready to do the final wet sand and polish here's an updated picture! Ignore the dripping paint on the lip etc, and steelies, im still doing work little bits at a time.

But im very happy with the outcome so far
