$50 Rustoleum paint job

Professional body work and detailing can get very very expensive for your truck. Its because for the professionals to sand and paint a trucks body can take hours and hours to get it just right.

This guy didn’t have the cash to pay for that right now on his 1968 Ford Galaxie and decided to paint it with $50 in Rustoleum.  Here are the steps he took according to him

   1. complete all major body work (dents body filler rust etc.
    2. sand car up to 320/400
    3. wipe down/clean paint surface use air blow gun or acetone
    4. tape and remove trim
    5. wear respirator
    6. mix rustoleum 1:1 with acetone/mineral spirits/paint thinner
    7. lay down first coat follow body lines of the car and maintain 50% overlap on each pass
    8. wetsand 600 grit and tack cloth in between coats
    colrsand and buff any imperfections
    9. protect the paint with WAX IT WILL NOT LAST IF YOU DO NOT PROTECT THIS PAINT
    10. lay down some rubber because you have a sick ride and spent 50 dollars on a paint job.

What do you guys think?  We think the paint job came out pretty great all things considered for the cost!
