spraying with rusto

Post by operator1 on June 10th 2008, 7:34 am

I may try spraying my car or at the very least just the door jambs and under the hood area.My question is would I still mix 50/50, also would a hvlp gun with a 1.4 nozzle work?

I don't know about the 50/50 mix but the 1.4 nozzle should work. You should try a test spray or two first to check everything out. A cardboard box or a old hood would work for this and you can adjust the mix from there. If you have never sprayed before start out with light coats.

Spraying Rustoleum

Post by dmac1379 on June 10th 2008, 6:50 pm

I've sprayed on Tremclad which, from what I understand, is very similar to Rustoleum. (See my 1989 Mazda B2200 project for pics.)

I used a 50/50 mix with varsol. It went down nice with no orange peel. The gun I used was a cheap high pressure unit from Home Depot. Unfortunately, I can't remember what the nozzle size is. I'll look around for the manual and see if I can find out for you though.

Good luck with your project!

tzyoung "the guy with the blue honda" did a 3-1 paint to thinner.

Im going to test spray it at 3-1 and adjust from there.

From what i have read, you want it a little thicker so it does not run.
