Rusto paint part 2 - The Evil Weevil !!!
 
So, a few years ago, I did a write-up of my Rust-Oleum paint job. Here's the link:

I figured a few years have passed, and it's probably time I did a follow-up.
If I were to do this job again, the one thing I would have done differently is to use the hardener right from the get-go. The initial coat outlined in the original thread took approximately 2 MONTHS to fully cure. The second coat with the hardener took 2 days.
The original plan was to go full-bore 70s gasser, and I think I accomplished that with the flames, lettering, and vintage decals:

I have a new set of Race-Trim slot mags on their way, and the windows are now tinted yellow. As soon as I get the new rims on, I'll post more pics.

Hey Don-Vee

I have been painting my roundy round cars and some Willys Jeep stuff too since about 2002...Rustoleum has always been at my side...it is super easy to use...cost comparison to the "real" automotive paint is really good too...

My dad back in the 1960's 70's and so on used it for all of his projects too except doing finish work on the outside of his cars...I was one that read the outside of the can and decided it was ok to use on the outside of the car...I never told anybody and nobody really asked either...

What I loved the most about it (other than the cost) is I had an old rusty Willys Jeep frame and I coated it with WD/40 (to preserve it) and then when it came time to cover it with my favorite color...the rustoleum layed right onto the WD/40 covered chassis....no fish eyes or nothing...I was hooked..

I am glad the truth is out now.

I wonder if Rustoleum makes
the paint for John Deere ?

Their stuff also has a good
reputation in some circles.
