Not tried pearlecent paint either - does that not have the same problems as metallic for painters. Took me a while to get used to metallic and I wanted to keep it "simple".

Yes, I believe that Rustoleum is a synthetic, which is why it lays so well with a roller. However, synthetics are regarded as the last swansong of a vehicle on its way to scrap. I wouldn't want a synthetic on any vehicle of mine! Maybe I am wrong about it, but all evidence I have seen so far says it is synthetic, aka "tractor and lorry" paint.

It would seem that I am wrong about the formulation:


About Auto Body Paint

Auto Body Paint is easy to apply, dries quickly and can be buffed to a brilliant finish after the Clear Coat has been applied. No recoat window limitations means additional coats can be applied at any time.

Acrylic Lacquer Basecoat formulation
Durable professional finish
Ready to Spray System
Designed for all vehicles
Tough, road resistant finish

For Best Results

For best resutls use the Auto Body System (Primer - Paint - Clear)
Available Sizes

Quart

However, I see no reason to buy that in preference to any mainstream acrylic paint that should be much lower priced. (Yes I am prejudiced!)

Nice of some to refer to my article as a go-to article for Rustoleum rollering, though there are more informative threads out there.
Comments on the results are fair.

Rollering with Rustoleum is a lot of work, both in the application and the patience in waiting to cut it back. However I did the whole job from preparation to finish without special equipment for about £300 of materials, and a high proportion of that was the 2K primer I rollered on.
It works for me because my project car started as a £400 snotter, and was never intended to become a concourse car. I was never going to invest 4 figures in applying paint.

I recently flatted it back, and it's come up nicely enough (I must get some pics into my Project Progress thread). White is a kind colour for doing this sort of thing. As for the finish, It's a 40 year old car, I can live with it not looking like it came out of the factory last week, and I mean no offence to those who want a top notch job on their paint-work.

I can almost certainly knock a chunk off that, and no VAT :) I've done a good 30 or more now so half an idea :) and can even collect and then drop off at your door again !
