Re: Rattle can or Rustoleum Gallon or SIngle Stage?

Hey that's looking cool! I am going through all the reading process right now as well. Want a new paint job, but DONT want to spring for the Auto Paint! For me good-enough is good-enough.

I am considering a satin black job, possibly John Deere Blitz Black, (or satin rustoleum). With a gloss red stripe down the side, also rustoleum, both sprayed out of a gun.

Yours is looking good!

Thanks!

Like I have said all along, this thing will be a 20 footer. I expect it to fade but that's fine with me as I'm going Satin and I like the old faded look anyway.

I'm actually considering decanting (removing paint from spray cans) and shooting this paint through my HF spray gun. I really like the color/sheen of this paint. I've calculated how much paint I'm going to need. About 18 more cans (I've used about 3 cans so far). 18 should leave me with a couple extra cans, but I don't want to get stuck without paint and need to finish. Out here they go for about $5 per can at Walmart. So another $90 in paint. That doesn't include the white for the top of cab and interior. Nor does it include primer. So I will be into this for around $250ish for paint/primer/bondo/sandpaper.

Could have saved a TON if I would have gone with a gallon of Satin Black (rustoleum/tractor supply etc). But, I don't want any of the gallon colors from Rustoleum. They do have a gloss blue and a gloss white that I could have mixed to make a nice baby blue but that would have been gloss. I may use the baby blue mix on my next truck project. Plan to do a military Air Force themed paint job next. Kind of a old worn out AF vehicle with some black accents/wheels etc.

Basically you poke a hole in the can, let the aerosol release, then cut the top off. Pour the paint into a mason jar.

There are tons of YouTube videos on it. Here is one:

Re: Rattle can or Rustoleum Gallon or SIngle Stage?

Can't you just mix some colors from the canned Rustoleum? There are color mixers online that can help you get an idea of how to get to where you want.

example: http://trycolors.com/

Seems like a better paint and once you get the mix down, you should be able to mix up a large batch and have some leftover.

Sounds like a good idea. Not sure I’d be able to match current color though. Eyeballing on a screen vs actual colors doesn’t always work out. Maybe find a place that can match the color for me??

Haha, yeah I will probably try it on a can that has been depleted or is almost empty first.

Seems like a pain and probably more costly than mixing up some rustoleum. I'm not convinced that rustoleum is better than the Krylon I've been spraying though. I think they are very similar products.

I really like this color though and would rather not just "get something close". And honestly, the Krylon is going on pretty well. About as good as I could expect from a spray can. The only visual negatives so far are my crappy bodywork and some crap from the air (spraying on the side of my house under vinyl carport and popups).

Re: Rattle can or Rustoleum Gallon or SIngle Stage?

Update on my Rattle Can progress. Got some primer and paint on the windshield surround. I'll go back and do some maintenance on a few spots later. Just trying to get the "hard to get to" spots painted before getting the windshield installed. I plan to drive this thing while finishing paint and other work it needs.
