Default LOOK-Paint your own car cheap

I have just read all this thread on a US MOPAR site twice-about 2 hours and taken some notes.
It is quite amazing.
Also got the details of the UK dealer for this stuff.
It basically tells you how to paint a car using an enamel paint to a pro standard.
Click on the pics and look at the bugs the guy has done like this.

Might give it a try.

Looks excellent. Got to be worth trying on a single panel, if you can find a suitable enamel paint.

But it's not hand painted. It is rollered with a small foam roller.
There is a UK dealer for the paint the guy uses.
The thread has certainly had a load of interest over there.

Bloody good finish though.
You could also spray the stuff.
Have you seen the link to his photobucket account with the close ups.

there used to be a company call re-paint
i painted my first car with it and a brush

looked terrable and took me weeks to sand it down to spray it
turns out its a hell of a lot harder than it looked.
it dries before youve finished your stroke
like hammeright in the sun

good luck
