Why Rustoleum and not single stage auto paint? The auto paint store will make spray cans in any paint code.

Looks amazing for just 6 cans.

555 Auto Paint does it in Searcy, Arkansas. They will even match paint, come up with the formula and put in a spray can. The cans have a very good nozzle and applies the paint very well. I had a custom color on my 3A and they made one for me to use for touch up. Maybe they do mail order too.

thanks peter999! rustoleum isnt all that bad but i dont think its the best either.. I mean for 60 bucks total it was alot more than i could have asked for.. being a student and having only a part time job convinced me to try it. Isnt Durabak a bedliner??

Hello Peter back.
YEAH Durabak is a bed-liner however it's also avaliable in a smooth finish, I think the smooth finish version comes in 14 \ 15 colors and is useable as a panel paint on vehicles.
I have not checked into it much for a while but remember the Febuary 2006 edition of 4WD Monthly had an article of some fellows brush painting a 1972 \ 73 Chevvy 4wd Pickup in Smooth Blue Durabak.
I'm not certain of current prices etc but will check later. Peter.

Hello Peter back.
Have a look at www.nonslipcoating.com
This is the official site for Durabak, then click on the Truck Bed Liner Photo and you'll see a copy of the Feb 2005 article I mentioned.
Durabak is avaliable in 13 Smooth Finish Colors and I must say seems a bit pricey $189.95 per gallon and 1 gallon coveres around 60 feet, anyway also click onthe image of the Blue FJ 40 Land Cruiser to see sampels of truck's painted with Durabak, back later. Peter.

Curious as to how this looks now? Sun kill it at all or is it peeling or flacking anywhere? I am thinking of doing something like this as I just did some bondo work on a few panels and it needs some color anyways.

I sprayed some black Rustoleum on some outdoor furniture and it lasted about a year. So, if your Jeep doesn't look good in a year, 6 more cans of paint and it's back to "new" again.
