Painting your car at home
    #4734734 - 09/30/05 02:42 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Alright, I want to paint my car. Just black, nothing fancy, so I'd rather avoid having to pay to get it done if possible. I'm curious if anyone's done it, what kind of paint works good for cars, and what's a good paint spraying type gun, basically what should I look for. I've done house painting and stuff so I know a little bit, but not much.

Just curious, I'm passing out so I'll check back tomorrow to see if anyone had some advice, thanks.

unless you want to learn the trade and start slangin paint jobs for profit i wouldnt do it yourself.. for everything you will need to buy, it would be cheaper and easier to just go to a shop. if you know someone who would let you use their equip/supplies i say go for it.. otherwise might be more trouble than its worth.

My uncle(who really isnt all there) decided to paint his station wagon green.
























































































He did it with a roller and house paint though.

I used to work on a jobsite with a guy that would repaint his car every couple weeks no shit. with spray paint. He came in one day with it half orange and half black. That's when we asked him WTF? He said, "I paints it every couple weeks so the cops aint gonna 'member my truck. I ran out of spray cans."

I always kind of wondered how spray paint would work. I have a buddy who does really good custom paint jobs, I guess I can ask him how much it'll be to just get it solid black.
