    Yep! Even the latest Hot Rod issue does it. Pretty amazing!

    Here's a link to a fellow Mustang owner currently going through the process.


    Here's the link that started it all. There's about 4000 posts in the thread chain! eek image


    I'll be doing this soon. Finishing up my quarter panel and will roll on the paint to see how well it does and if it's better than single stage PPG. I'll be using Sherwin Williams Sher-kem since they can match my existing paint using tints.

    Anyone else done this or know anyone who has?

    I've looked into doing this too. But I plan to spray it instead of roll it. I tested it on a section of a trunk lid and 1/4 panel then buffed it out. I think it will work great. I used Rust-ol-eum but may look into that Sher-Kem and try it.

    I bought some "Van Sickle" tractor , Equipment & industrial enamel paint from a local ranch supply store that they say you can roll brush or spray with equal results. I didn't have the guts to try rolling. but it sprayed pretty well, and the brush work on detailing my hubcaps worked well too. See my garage for a picture of my Valiant. I used a gallon of white with about a half cup of IH blue mixed in.I can't seem to embed an image in this post. anyone know how to do that?
