im an ocau nerd so ill quote hte first page for ya'll

Hi guys, ive been reading up on this 'Rustoleum' paint (good to stop rust, can go straight on metal or primer) and was wondering if they sell it here in Aus, or if anyone here has used it.

http://www.rustoleum.com

There are two australian distributors, but in qld and victoria! argh.


Anyway this paint is creating a bit of a revolution amongst DIY'ers who dont have thousands of $$$ to paint their car! (in America) Results after using a high density foam roller have been amazing. The paint is strong, comes up with a mirror finish after polishing, and doesnt fade. Seems good. Roller means you dont get all the dust and crap settling on your car, which is perfect for me (very dusty garage, need to paint my car in two weeks!)

Heres the moparts thread which seems to have kickstarted alot of interest:

Thanks to 69charger for posting so much info on the roller paint job. Your fame is spreading worldwide

Here are a couple of pics of my efforts on my MX-5/Miata.

I spent weeks practising on a spare boot lid and I'm really happy with the way that everything is progressing. I'm using a paint called Tremco Metal Armour which is the closest match I could find to the Rustoleum thats available Down Under.

Thanks for the inspiration and the know-how guys, you are all dead set legends!!!

Tremco is sold out most aussie hardware stores.

are you seriouse you can paint a car with a roller then cut and polish?!?! id be so skeptical unless i seen some real testimonials on this gear but it sounds a treat. how would you go priming/filling and all the rest? would that be from the gun?

As with most things it comes down to preparation, and patience. If your prepared to do a bit of experimenting and get it right, why wouldn't it work???

After looking at some of the pics in the moparts thread, I'm impressed :shock:

With all they gys with good results, they are doing a lot of thin coats, rubbing it back and buffing. Pretty similar to a backyard spray anyway. All the same if I saw someone do it and knew it worked Id give it a crack on a daily.

yeah well thats the thing, with this solution you dont even need to set up a spray booth, get a GOOD gun and aircompressor, all you really need is some open space to do the work and some patience, DIY madness

If i can be convinced more id paint me car with this stuff at the drop of a hat

The wife has a Datsun 1000 that she hasn't used in a few years. We're bringing it to Brissy so I can use it as a daily, so I'm gunna give it a crack on that. I'll be sure to post up some pics 8)

Oh, and a quick search of the web for Brightside marine paint has turned up BCF or Whitemores here in Oz (yes, I read all 50 pages :P )
