Rolling with Duplicolor Paint Shop Paint?

Post by Sneke_Eyez on May 3rd 2010, 12:00 am

I'm currently in the process of trying to figure out what color I want to paint my 74 Dart.
Right now I'm formulating, and I think I've come up with a pretty good idea, something interesting, that you don't see all the time.
I'm going to do the car in Rustoleum gloss black, using Penetrol, per T.Hadley's awesome idea. I've been selling Penetrol where I work for ages, and people have had good luck with it. I wondered if it would work for this type of project.
Annnyway, when I finish the gloss black, I want to do some accents, either stripes, or something.
What I want to do is do them in a green color, specifically, the color of Duplicolor's Sublime Green Pearl.
The other day I was walking through Advance Auto and I came across it.
One of the guys came up to me and asked me if I wanted to see it in the can, and he popped it open for me. It was perfect, it is literally the perfect accent color for the gloss black I want to do the car in...
But, the problem is, I was going to roll the stripes on because I have NO idea how to spray a car, so now I'm confused if I can roll the Paint Shop paint onto the car.

Does anyone have any insight?
I still have some time before I actually do paint the car, but picking a color and having ideas is what gives me motivation.
Thanks in advance!

See if Dupicolor makes it in a spray can.

To answer your question..... I don't see why not but it would depend upon if the penetrol would mix with the Dupicolor.

Stripes or SOMETHING. I love it. I have been saying for a long time you are NOT tied to one or two plain colors. Get a book on faux house painting or look at the custom vans from the late 70s for ideas. That was all done with masking. True, that was then but there are many ideas that ,with a bit of change, would work today.

Looking forward to this one.

Yeah I've checked and the only way they sell it is in quarts.
I wish they made it in a spray can, that'd be so much easier...
I dunno if I can mix the paint with anything else, penetrol, mineral spirits, or otherwise. I'll have to check into it.

you can do it but you have to do it THIN or it will seep under the tape

If you have a compressor, a cheap touch up gun will work great - I used an airbrush to detail some parts of my car - would have been too slow for a stripe, but a touch up gun would be perfect

If the Dupicolor is an oil based enamel Penetrol should work with it, try contacting Dupicolor and ask, if you can't find that info on line, a lot can be learned about a product by looking at there MSDS Info.

Also have you checked there website to see if they offer it in spray cans?

The primer surfacer I use could not be found anywhere local or online, I had to order it through Home depot of all places
