I painted my project (SPARTA) with waterbased housepaint; will be finishing it off at some stage and will then post pics, but looks like it might work. Worth a thought if you're on a budget. We're going with British Paints sealer and then Dulux Wash&Wear color.

Probably won't get the gloss of a shot job or anything, but who said matt was a bad thing?

The supercheap paint is laquer; and i'm not a big fan of it. It doesn't get very good coverage. Plus spraypainting is a pain. Plus it comes off with wax&grease remover. Plus it stinks whilst painting. Plus it is pretty poor for cars, specifically says "not for automotive use" (!)

Housepaint is similiar price as 'normal' auto paint e.g. septone (4litres is PLENTY for a car), cleanup is a breeze (WATER!), prep is a breeze (rough sand), coverage is EXCELLENT, drying time is incredible (half an hour max), the paint 'keeps' awesomely (we used a small 4" roller/tray, barely 1/4 full, around 250ml, and it lasted for 2 coats, could have gone 3, and didn't need any water added)

Plus - no dust/paint mask, no chance of breathing in paint, and its reasonably cheap (just find leftovers from house renovations!)

If you want more info go to mopar.org and search for $50 paintjob; they use an oilbased paint so its a bit different, but still, works a treat.

Mine is just so its a solid, matt color (could probably get a glossy paint and it would work well), I don't expect it to last more than 5 years but who cares!

And yes, seriously, I did. Its a drift ***, who cares it if doesn't work. And if it does work, then chalk one up to thinking outside the box and giving it a go!

Looking good :)

I'll post some pics tomorrow if I get home in time, batteries were flat tonight. So far we've done around 4 coats; and it's getting very good coverage - ie, it looks white!. It may actually be a little more time intensive than the spray method (in terms of application) but its a lot more fun than spray, and prep time (masking etc) is FAR less - it's like 5 minutes!

I reckon another sand, another coat or two, then it'll be done. We haven't done the bumpers yet though, but that'll all be in good time.
