OK, I joined a while back, but haven't made a post until this one.

My name's Will. I'm in Murfreesboro, TN. I used to write automotiveblogger.net in May and June of last year, and I totally stumbled across the rickwrench.com site and wrote a post about it here:

http://www.automotiveblogger.net/paint-your-car-for-fifty-dollars/

I quit writing the blog at the end of June, but kept my interest in the $50 paint job. I eventually found my way to the moparts.org thread(s) and still have the Hot Rod article next to the throne.

Well, now I have a car to paint. I've actually had a couple for awhile now, but they need a whole bunch of bodywork and have therefore been cost-prohibitive since I don't have a welder or quarter-panel replacing ability.

Anyway, I bought a beater 1992 Mazda Protege which is fairly straight, but has a fender, hood and bumper of a different color. I'll be working on that car when I get to that point. Right now, I thought it best to work my technique on a hood for my 78 Chevy truck that I bought recently. The truck's black and beat, and the hood's orange. Last weekend I sprayed the bottom of it with Rustoleum spray bombs. This weekend so far I've been filling in a couple problem spots and sanding like crazy. I'm about to go out into the garage and roll on my first coat of Rustoleum black.

Hopefully this goes well. I have a whole car to get if this one comes out decent.

Thanks, JMJ. I like the job you did on your Storm, by the way.
