Roller Paintjob

After reading about the "Roller Paint Job" on the internet and seeing the "98 Dollar Paintjob" in Hot Rod Magazine, I decided to give it a go. Perk is that you do little masking and can do it in the garage / yard and there is little paint loss so a gallon can do an entire vehicle.

Instead of Rustoleum, I chose Sherwin Williams Sher-Kem since it can be tinted to match my existing paint.

I'll post the photos to the album as I complete the stages. It works like this:

Coat 1
1 hour
Coat 2
11 hours
Wetsand out orangepeel
Coat 3

Coat 4

Coat 5

Ouch... how many years do you estimate the wet sanding will take? ;-) My arms hurt just thinking about it!
