Quick crash course on painting parts.

I am wanting to paint some parts of the Jeep and just need to make sure im not missing any steps.

-Sand
-Paint
-Clear coat

I know that is very vague, but is that pretty acurate for painting parts.. i.e. tie rod, suspension coils, etc...

-Clean parts with dish washing detergent to remove grease and oils. Some solvents leave behind an oily film.
-Sand
-Apply 3-4 light coats of paint 15 minutes apart, use a timer.
-Clear coat is optional and not required.


Epoxy appliance paint and Rust-Oleum Hammered Finish give better final results and are better quality paints that will last longer. Cheap paint is cheap, for a good reason.

Ive used the hammered finish for patio furniture before, it does a good job, so I will probably go that route again.

I have a half gallon can of Rustoleum hammered paint that can be applied directly over rust (sanded down a little). Will this fare ok on coils? I know coils flex and stuff and will that crack and peel the rustoleum paint?

^^^^ I don't think paint will take the flex of coils. Powder coat would be the way to go on those. But hey give it a shot. If its doesn't work your not out much and that is how we figure stuff out.
