Which Rustoleum to use?

Post by skydmark1 on March 17th 2011, 12:02 pm

Ok everyone, I'm currently in the research and note taking stages of this paint process. In fact, I haven't even purchased the vehicle I plan to paint yet. I'm beginning to shop for a 92-95 Jeep YJ that I will surely be doing body work on and will eventually want to paint. I have some unanswered questions after reading but for now I just have one.

Which Rustoleum paint should I be considering. The standard stops rust paint, the professional paint, or the TopSide paint. I like the idea of a UV protectant in the TopSide but it's not super important as I don't live in a highly sunny area. I want to lay down a decent paint job in around 5 coats. The vehicle will be my Daily Driver so minimizing the time off the road is important.

What is everyone's experience with these 3 different versions of rustoleum. Are the prep and priming needs the same for each? Is the sanding techniques the same for each (every other coat)?

Let's hear it!

Prep is the same for all of them. In fact it is 90% of the job. Remember the golden rule. If you even think you can see it before finish, you WILL see it after.

Any reason to not use the Topcoat? The color choices aren't that much better in the Stops Rust so I may just go with the TopCoat and have the extra UV protection. Will application and thinning be the same?
