First off, you cannot do this for $50, it's more like $120. It's still cheap to buy the supplies and takes alot of time to get it right. We are using Rustoleum Royal Blue Gloss enamal thinned with mineral spirits, applied with 4" foam rollers. I bought this 1987 LX Convertible with 120k in April with plans of a quick restore and resell. My friend Tim decided he wanted to join the 5.0 ranks so he bought it before anything could happen. Both he and I ran accross the following links and were inspired to take a shot...or a roll I guess He has intentions of getting it professionally painted in the near future but wanted it to look decent for the time being. We know this is not a perfect solution nor are we trying to win anything. Trying to save money and use what we have...free time. moparts: paint job on a budget!? Rickwrench, Alfa GTV, Falcon Squire, Corvair Here is where we started. Sanded down with 600, no primer applied. LOL Coat # 1 Coat # 2 over that Wet sanded with 600 grit and coat # 3 applied, fish eye was a problem. Wiped down with Wax and tar remover before paint was applied...used Mineral spirits and wiped dry later on and it worked much better. Coat # 4 over that, pretty well covered. Lots of orange peel to deal with. Wet sanded with 800 grit, there is still some orange peel and low areas from fish eyed coat # 3, getting close to smooth but coverage is getting thin. Will update as the next few days progress.
