nothing expensive in price or looks. it's white and i just want to 'rejuvenate' it. is it possible to spray it with say white glossy rust paint so that it won't look crappy?

any tips are welcome!

that will make it look good short term,but the spray paint doesn't have the lasting power of auto paint.

i dont need people to get me,i just need people to get out of my way

Its major prep work, as compared to the actual time spent painting. Cleatus looked like new a couple of years ago, look at him now! And thats with proper paint. And proper paint is expensive[b]

grab a couple cans of tremclad, then when it scratches or chips u can just spray over it. cheap, easy and it looks normal, what else do u want?

the paint on tootse is $40 worth of engine enamel. it looks good still. its actually clean now. i'll post a pic tomorrow

anything can be fixed with a chainsaw a hammer some ratchet straps and duct tape.

if your gonna paint it do it right, other wise its gonna look like shit in 6 months. or all peel off after the first trail run/power wash.

i just painted my zuke with epoxy paint(bunkerhill green). its preaty tuff paint.

industrial speed enamel from cloverdale paint is like $30 per gallon, any color. its dry to the touch in 30 min and pretty tough when its cured.

anything can be fixed with a chainsaw a hammer some ratchet straps and duct tape.

well, the $30 idea wins!! thanks everyone!! but with this method, do i still have to sand down my entire truck or just the rust spots? yes, i'm lazy......

I boguht the pail of tremclad $30 and painted my Blazer. Used a sponge roller and you can't tell. Wit hthe sponge roller you dont get the cheese cloth effect ;) and ya you can fix the redneck pinstriping off the trail ;) I used 1/2 a can on the Blazer I think. Tremclad sticks to anything hehe [:p]
