    Painting my car.....myself

    Discussion started by Gunm - Jul 20, 2005

    My car's paint is looking pretty fucked up these days.

    it has some pretty high mileage and so i figured what the hell could be the harm in re-painting it myself? yes, i know it's not going to look dope but i'd rather have a plain grey primer coat thatn the way it looks now(sorry, don't want to give away too many details)

    Anyone care to reccomend some decent spray apint or primer i can use to get my car looking all Road Warrior n shit rather than the peely sunwashed boat it resembles now?

    No, i am not going to have someone piece on it. no, i am not going to use montana to paint it.

    reccomendations, hints, tips, suggestions appreciated....sarcasm is not but fuck, i think that's a given around these parts

    looking into getting an air compressor and airgun may be a better solution. both can be bought for around $150 and the primer + paint, if mixed with the right thiners appropriately will cost just the same as spray paint.

    also, it will give a much better overall look that spray paint

    i spent a few months with my old talon.
    i had to do all the bodywork myself...bondo, primer, etc.

    not fun at all. go to autozone adn look at the primer. most of it is the same regardless of pricing.

    i did find some shit that sprayed a darker grey than a can i had when i started, so be sure you start with one kind and stay with it.

    you're going to need amps

    my mom spray painted her car where the paint is peeling off, it looks better from a distance, but equally shitty close up. i don't know if the paint is just going to continue peeling around the edged of the repainted spots or what.

    My mate did it to two of his cars, he plans on doing it to his third real soon. His brother painted cars for a living, so he used his gear in his back yard and damn did they turn out shit. I mean, it was better than what the original paint was, but wasnt too spectacular.

    Given that your resigned to it looking mediocre at best, I don't see what you want to know.

    I mean just spray it with paint - it can't be that hard

    oh yeah...the looks can be vastly improved by stenciling on some race numbers.
