I recently painted an old bed frame with rustoleum hammered paint for my son (silver) and it turned out quiet nice. I am in the process of painting and raptor lining my jeep but have to wait for the weather to turn this spring to finish. Question is........I plan to paint the dash, rollbar, tire carrier and more misc. parts with Rustoleum hammerred Black. What are your thoughts on this? I may add a hardener to speed up drying and maybe it will be more durable. does anyone have pics of there CJ's with this kind of paint or any experience with it?
here is how the bed turned out Ryan Turner's Photos | Facebook
Not a big rust issue here in AL so I wire brushed most of my frame and used the black hammered on it and it looks great! Used the silver on some of the motor brackets and came out nice to. Guess I'll find out how durable as soon as the engine is running and get miles on it, but so far I like it. Good Luck.
i used it for a lot my under dash parts and seat frames.
i like the way the black looks. it doesn't require a primer, just a clean surface, and it sprays covers well even in the cold weather we've been having.
it covers well but it does seem like a very thin paint.
I used the Rustoleum Hammered Black on the frame and other parts on my current CJ7 build. It looks good but I can't speak of it's durability. I have a test piece that I sprayed (in May) that is sitting outside on the side of my house to see how it holds up to the desert sun, only time will tell.
I can no longer find the Hammerite stuff but I use a lot of Rustoleum and it needs 2 coats with a good bit of drying time. I let it bake in the summer sun. I have used this paint on my sliders with great success. Normal foot traffic on the tubes has no effect after 2 years. The harder hits are touched with a spray can. GOOD STUFF!
Here's that bracket I sprayed with it. I sand blasted it to bare metal and gave it 1 coat on top and left the bottom bare. It sat outside in the desert sun (and some rain) since May 09'. I don't know how much it'll fade over time....
Rustoleum Hammered finish is on my CJ. It's peeling off the stainless hinges, and some of the fiberglass. Sticks good to steel and rust, though.
I wouldn't call it black, more like a dark gray. I'll be repainting, this spring.
I am in the middle of stripping my yj to frame. I don't get tons of hours every day to work on it, so I pull what I can when I have time. If I can't work on it because of the time of day/night or I don't feel like it, I strip my hinges and plates and the body and try to get it all primed. I am using rustoleums grey basic auto primer. I plan on doing the frame and underbody in Hammered black, all body and tub parts in Hammered blue, and the hinges, flares, dash in a hammered gray. I plan on putting Chassis Saver on the underside first then priming and painting. I am still undecided on which bedliner to use inside the tub. I may go black or not, I am unsure. I don't want it getting too hot in the summer. So I may find one in a nice grey or something.
