tried rustoleum with a brush.

Hi just wanted to share for anyone considering this.

I painted the side of my YJ after putting on new metal with a high density foam roller and a brush following the roller (like tip and roll boat painting).

I used rustoleum reduced with mineral spirits and wet sanded up to 1500 and buffed using ultimate compound......The Result?

I could not get any wothwhile shine...also you could still scratch the paint with your fingernail after over a week.

I sanded it down and used the same technique with a single stage Nason urethane in black.

WOW! what a difference. I believe the car paint is so much easier to get to a real shine and obviously is stronger against the elements than rustoleum.

Bottom line for me is yes Rustoleum works but spend 30 dollars for a quart of real car paint. It shines up sooo much easier, gives a deeper shine, and Im sure will last longer in the elements.

BTW I just used POR 15 on some frame stuff and it is as good as they say...I love it.

Sorry no pics I am old and cant figure out how to host pics and such.

I got excellent shine using white, I used acetone instead of mineral spirits to reduce. Paint seemed plenty hard.

Here's a fender after a quick hit with some polish. I rolled it on as well.

Although Cracked's does look good, I still say there is no way you will get the mirror type shine I got out of a $90 complete kit of actual automotive paint. But I also know that not everyone has a air compressor, paint guns, and a facility to shoot it in. So do what you have to to get the metal protected and be happy with your work.

Was your kit a base coat - clear coat set up?

I really like that shade of orange. Looks very good and solid. Any recent pics of it done?

All pics look great guys!

I have been lurking around here so I figured Id jump in...I just think you can get the deeper shine with a car paint.

I will try to figure this pic stuff out so I can show you guys how it turned out.

I gottta say its cool being back on a forum learning something new...I spent over 10 years on Corall (mustang) site. I am so into this YJ. Its my first Jeep.

This is gonna be fun. Ive already done the drivers floor and side of body....im gonna check how to post pics

No it was a single stage urethane I had around from a race car I did 10 years ago. I was suprised it was still good but I read somewhere urethane lasts a long time.

sorry Luuca, but I'm not finished with painting my toy yet. Between my work schedule and the weather recently, I haven't made much progress since those pics were taken a couple of months ago

I'm hoping to have it done by the end of this month though.


I agree with you booboowv77, while it is shiny, it is definitely not smooth and glassy...it is paint over bedliner after all, and has a definite orange peel texture to it, which I hope will help hide the scratches from wheelin' the snot out of it
