Newbies first post

Post by Dkos on April 3rd 2008, 2:10 pm

Hi just signed up. Been thinking about rolling my car for a while, just found this site. I can't bare to go thru that Moparts thread again, but hear people are using Interlux Brightsides paint now. Is there a good place for step-by-step instructions?

Howdy Dkos,
Welcome!! Smile
There are a few here who used Brightside, hopefully they can chime in with some tips. From what I've read it is pretty much the same method other than what to mix with the paint as a thiner. A step by step thread would be nice, I'm thinking about using Brightside myself on the next project.
So what are you painting? Color? Pics?

I don't know, I have to ask my daughter to help me post pics. Smile

I like the 914, didn't like the earlier model much.

Of course I'd vote for Yellow. Smile

Someone asked for Brightside methods, here ye be:

http://carpainting.wetpaint.com/page/Rollering+Interlux+Brightside+Polyurethane+Paint?t=anon

NOTICE: you do NOT need to use Brightside's Thinner, regular 100% MS will do - and use 2 Rollers, the 2nd one to pop the bubbles.

Thanks for the Brightside link. So which is easier to work with? Brightisde or Rustoleom? Any concern about breathing in the MEV in Brightside?

From ALL that I have read, especially, the LONG moparts thread, everyone seems in accord that the Brightside is easier to work with etc.....BUT the Rustoleum is LESS expensive.
IF I was to do it again, and I do have to re-paint my hood and top, I'd use the Odorless 100% MS Thinner just because it SLOWS the curing process some [did not believe I wanted that - but - may have kept me from getting bug a boos in my hood -IF - could have worked it longer].

BEST of Luck!
