I really enjoyed this comment:

"A man picks a paint that only costs $50 to paint his car. When he's done, he's satisfied with the results. Unlike some people, I get it.
Keep on keepin' on."

Whether $5000 or $50, if you're happy...so be it.

I've read plenty of bodyshop horror stories about "real" paintjobs on other forums.

I think roller paintjobs are more accepted now than a few years back.

I just read the first few pages of that, very funny!

The first car I ever painted 'proper' was a Toyota MR2 and to be honest the rollered job on my bus is 100% better than it was. Not to mention the fact even though I was spraying it in my plastic lined garage the spray got everywhere and took ages to clean out once I was done. Worst though was walking out of the garage after spraying the toyota and looking down the drive to where my S13 200sx was parked... now sporting a rather fetching red tint to it's windscreen. affraid

Everything I used to paint in the 70's was either lacquer based (old school) or modern hi-tech enamel. I can still remember the debate over using acrylic enamel or not. Every cool 60's and 70's and even 80's paint jobs were all enamel. So why isn't that 'real' paint?

darn kids... go back into your mommies womb until your done cooking. You still sound half baked... Razz

Alkyd enamel's were used into the 40's to mid 50's by some manufacture's,so I think it is a real paint job!!!

My .02 cents would be that 98 percent of the complainers are either professional painters who feel threatened, or know it alls that never painted a car "Real" or otherwise. In fact, apply that to most internet whiners about any topic! I like the comment about "if you like it, go for it". To me, it's do it at home or don't do it at all. Built, not bought. So how many of them bitchers have a "real" paint booth in their garages. Exactly.

I love this way of painting its a way to change the color of your car when ever you get bored with the color thats on it; and not have to get a loan to pay for it. This was my 1st roll-on paint job and if for some reason it don't last very long i'll just get new rollers and start over; it just feels good when you see what is possible with a little work and not a lot of money.

I found this site through Garage Journal in looking for a simple way to paint my 'fridge in the garage. I'm going to go with the Rustoleum and foam roller route and see how it turns out. I've painted many a car in my day, but I just don't feel like dragging the 'fridge to the other garage, getting a few hundred bucks in supplies and having a lot of overspray. So we'll see how it turns out.

If you want to see some real haters of the paint, try posting over on Hotrodders.com about a rustoleum roll-on paint job. You'll be sawn and quartered. Lol!!!

Hotrodders.com. tongue
Don't ask about swapping frames there either. Rolling Eyes
For a bunch of hot rodders they sure don't like some normal hot rod type stuff. This roll on paint is exactly the hot rodding spirit in action.
and I am a member there also.

For some unknown reason painting your car with a roller really ruffles a lot of feathers...... huh

so true, they would rather write the check for 10g's instead of trying to paint the car themself.

I got some respect from a local corvette club guy.. had my car sitting there while I put new wipers on and he came to drop off a PC to repair. Told him this paint just cost less than $50 and he didn't believe it - so I showed him the FB pics of the whole project.

Why are there so many nay sayers to this type of paint job ; i get one guy saying how sorry he feels for me because the cheap paint is going to fade and chip off ; so far my paint is just cheers fine still and no fading at all ; i would like to hear from you members on how your paint is holding up and how many years old they are.

I get a lot of, lets say, colourful comments when I say that I'm rolling tremclad on my truck, but the opinion changes when I ask "would YOU pay 4000$ on a 1000$ truck?"
