Man that's just amazing. It brings a back an old memory and a comparison. About 20 years ago when I was in High School a buddy of mine had an old beater Ford pickup. He was the youngest of three brothers and his whole family was into restoring/fixing-up old cars. They had some nice spray guns and it seemed like there was always some vehicle being painted in their garage. They did one (a Jeep CJ-5) for me and some of our friends had there's shot by the older brothers. Anyway - they did his old beater Ford in black and I'm not sure it turned out as well as your roller job! I'm just speechless....
This looks like something I'd like to try, I'll probably find an old panel off something to test it on first, but how do you think this would hold up in rain? I see a lot of pictures that look like they were taken in SoCal, and I think we might get a little more rain in the NW.
It'll be fine. Rustoleum is designed for outdoor use. It's a pretty standard product for painting armour on 4x4s. Then after you bash it into something it's "rattle-rattle-rattle, shhhh, shhhh, shhhh". Fixed!
up-date.. you know kragens auto part sells auto paint( house of kolor )( the type you use in a spray gun) if you thin this out and use a hardener, why would this not work , with a foam roller?
Those auto paints are generally Acrylic. They dry fast (very fast) and don't produce a high gloss out of the gun. Using a slow drying enamel house paint allows the paint to flow while wet imparting a better finish off a brush or roller.
But if you were considering buying proper auto paint, why not buy a spray gun and use the product as intended?
