The rattlecan job is ok, but I believe there are a couple better ways for a cheapo paint job. The spray paint cans are limited because of the paint nozzles...it's hard to get a smooth look over large flat body panels
1. Roll on rust-oleum. There are many that have had success with this. No overspray. Color selection is key. White usually comes out the best.
2. Spray rustoleum through a cheap pneumatic paint gun and a medium sized air compressor. I did this with my old '91 C1500 and was pretty happy with the results. The truck had been hit, and had mismatching body parts, so I did this in my back yard. Even the cheapest paint gun will have a better nozzle than a spraypaint can. I mixed the paint 50%paint/50%mineral spirits
i paid a grand for it drove it 1/2 home and cracked the head ******* didnt tell me the block froze when we had the bad freeze down here no matter it will run soon and next time it goes down say hello to a 6.9 liter idi with a banks turbo MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Before you guys rip me up cause this a 78 bronco I think this pertains to your subject matter. I'm using $2.50 krylon paint gloss royal blue well here's some pics
well there you go One rattle can paint job an yes it's all in the prep work!
Ha, thats the same paint I used on my friends 81 F150! I just lightly sanded it down and sprayed away. He had it for 3 years, sold it and last time I seen it was last year. Still looking good too! Too bad they don't make Ford's Midnight Blue Metallic color in generic spray cans.
How good is the Duplacolor spray cans? I seen they "had" that color a few years ago.
