Looks great! (although I see you still haven't learned how to compress your images under 100k )

well, ill be honest, im not a fan of the color combo on the fiero, perhaps a different car, but I still am impressed with how it looks. How shiny is the paint? If you hold a ruler perpendicular to the paint, what is the furthest number out you can read? I remember somewhere that being a way to measure how good the paint looks. Just curious.

On a different note, I was very close to attempting this myself. some guys on my charger forum were doing this about 2 years ago and I have been mulling it over since. this nearly pushed me to do it. but I put a little elbow grease in and buffed my paint out. You wouldnt imagine the oxidation that the compound ate through and is still shiny.

anyways, sorry to hijack the thread there for a sec. props!

I think I'll get it eventually Patrick .


Well, its not very shiny right now because I'm waiting for the paint to cure out another week before I polish it. After I do that, I'll do the ruler test and let you know. Personally, I love the color combo. I was gonna do a deep purple or dark navy, but I think that would contradict too much with my black molding, rims, and vents.


And yea, my headlight motor hates me .

Anyone know if you can do this with metallics? or if they even sell them in the quarts or anyhting... Or is it even possible?

I used a restoluem spray for my DOHC and i would REALLY like to do teh opper portion of the car the same color if possible. (molding down is going to be black, molding up blue)

this is the rustoleum color i got in a can from Menards i would liek to match


Just hoping i can do it this way instead of spending $400 on paint to do it "right" if not i will probably just do the car black : (

First of all I would like to say that your GT turned out very very nice looking!

I did this to my Formula last fall and was only able to get the first two coats on it before it became too cold here in Wisconsin to wetsand. I drove her all winter (yup, I dove in the salt and snow and ice) and the paint stayed on incredibly well. No chips, no cracks no problems.

My intentions were to finish it this spring, but I just sold her last weekend so I won't be able to, but I did give the guy that bought it from me the rest of the paint. He is going to complete the job that I started.

Once again, nice paintjob!!

I think I spy 4X4 Chevy Luv Truck! I had one of those. It was a pretty good little truck. Sure took some abuse and kept on going.

Great post BTW. You have done some good work on this thread.

Good job! Looks good enough to me, its a lot better than faded paint and pealing clear coat.
Thanks for sharing.

Very nice job on the cars! It shows that if you take your time and use some patience that you can have very good results. Plus the money you save you can use it for other toys on the car.

well i got bored today so i started working on my two-tone $50 paint job....so far i've sanded only the front end with the 80..but i'm taking my time with the sanding cuz i want it to be good...the good thing about it was someone stopped when they saw me sanding and i find out that he has a 84 in really decent condition sitting under a car cover in a backyard a few blocks away from me...looks like a potential purchase

Just curious if anything was added to the paint to keep it from flashing??

We use Rustoleum/etc fairly extensively at work and the paint always seems to lose it shine after a few months - and this is in an indoor enviroment, never mind an outdoor one where the paint is exposed to UV rays/etc.

Interested in the long term looks...
