I am thinking of painting my '95 Golf using Rustoleum. I have read articles & seen videos on the subject. I believe I cad do this. Anyone have any ideas before I take this endeavor??

You're going to roll it on? I personally have shot my car in satin Krylon with pretty good results. I tried spraying parts with satin Rustoleum and it didn't come out the same; very hard to work with, pretty runny.

What color are you thinking? Chances are Krylon has a similar color, and if you rattle can it, it will actually look decent with good prep.

Nope, I am going to roll it. I will use Royal Blue in honor of Chelsea Football Club. I know, I am crazy. Yes, I am fanatic :hmm:

I shot my Corrado with Satin Oxford Blue, which I'm guessing is a bit darker than Royal.

In progress:

Finished product, sorta ;)

Nah, was done all in my driveway. Took a long time because of the prep and weather, which is why I did it in stages, but it's all rattle canned. $3/can at Walmart, so the nickname of the color is "Walmart Blue"

:funny:
