Yes, I remember that Hot Rod article well, and have since kept it in the back of my mind as something to try if I ever had a car with just the right level of crustiness -- in need of paint but not nice enough that the brush job would ruin it. So far that hasn't happened, and meanwhile arm muscles (not to mention lung and brain cells) aren't getting any younger. I wonder why they regretted printing it? Too many complaints from people expecting better results? And you must have painted the 2002tii a long time ago -- one rattle can has been more than 10 bucks for a while.
