For those that aren't on Facebook I figured I'd post this here. Rustoleum BBQ grill paint (Satin black). I used about a 60/30/10 ratio between paint, acetone and Valspar enamel hardener.

The car was already rattle canned primer for the past 1 1/2 years because the previous owner let the clear/paint completely go. Done with a Harbor Freight $10 sprayer.

WARNING: I have NEVER painted a car with an HVLP car in my life. First time using it .

Total Cost of the paint, acetone and hardener was about $60/70. Add in the sprayer and neighbors newspaper and tape and such and some other stuff probably around $100.

High-volume-low-pressure = HVLP, not HLVP, in case anyone was trying to decode that part. Nice work on a basic paint job.

Curious. Did you use Rustoleum BBQ paint because you thought the car may catch on fire?

I do like the flat black look!

That looks really good. What compressor did you wind up getting to power the spray gun?

Heh sorry about the HPLV part. I forgot about explaining that. This is the on I used (it was on sale and had a coupon lol) https://www.harborfreight.c...spray-gun-47016.html

Yes that's the joke that I'm currently telling on why I used the BBQ grill paint. Hold them flames in .

Used my Harbor freight 3 HP 21 gallon tank with an air/water separator installed at the tank.

Just used my garage to shoot it. I have a detached garage so that helps. Just had the one back window and the side door open and got over spray all over the floor and such. There's literally an outline of the car on the garage floor. lol. I'll come off eventually. Just got tired of the primer fading once a year and I'm a cheap ass and like to do things myself. Whether they're right or wrong .

Thanks for the compliments.

I would attempt a wrap in my own garage, but conditions would have to be just right. My current crappy garage would never be clean enough, and the lighting is very poor. BUUUT my wife and I just opened a home equity line of credit FOR A BRAND NEW GARAGE! woot. Now, I have to sell both my 77s, and put the money in that kitty. Anybody a fan of colonnade coupes?

I thought about doing a stain black wrap but then again That would be super tedious and I'd probably get mad and screw it up lol.

Congrats on the garage. Mine is 24x24 with an 18' wide door but I want to move into BFE and get away from our Tater-neighbors and their kids. Got a few more years before that though.
