Just bring it to automotive paint store they will have it solved.

I want to paint it myself, i have seen this paint job everyone Is talking about on YouTube it's the 50dollar paint job with rustoleum paint. They role on the paint, and looks decent..

So do it. You know difference between automotive pain shop and automotive paint store, right?

bostonwindows30 06-05-2013 03:10 AM

Yes, I think the rustoleum paying is the cheaper way to go, if I have a paint shop make this paint I am sure it would cost alot

Well, for starters, they take a chip for analysis and determine what exactly paint is it. Next, should you have matching paint, and decide to sell your truck, it will not show as repainted, as it shows real well under the hoof, trunk, and doors.
If you want to drive it into grave and don't real care, just sponge it on, whatever is close enough. Seen that done either, even has some charm to it.
Reason automotive paints cost what they cost is cuz you do not start leaving paint track behind you during or after any major rain.

Back in the day, my friend and I painted his VW Bug with a couple of paint rollers and an exterior oil base house paint. Looked s**t hot. (from a distance)
Too bad there wasn't a YouTube back then.:laughing:
