Rustoleum Paint Job RPJ Gold Course Update! Your Thoughts Please…

 

Hey guys!,

Thanks for watching this short video.

The Rustoleum Paint Job RPJ Gold Course is on it’s way to completion and I want your thoughts so I can finish up the final touches on the Q&A section of the course.

Please post your comments below: What you want to know?… Tell us what your most interested in… is it all the methods, paints & mixing, paint prep, auto body work?

Don’t be afraid to ask your MOST BURNING Questions!

Heck… Post your project story here below… tell us what you’r working on!

This course will take you by the hand and show you the right way of mixing and spraying rustoleum paints on your special project.

ATTENTION: The RPJ GOLD COURSE & most of the VIP material is geared towards spraying the paints on with a spray gun. Not by rolling it on. I may end up adding that in anyway, but if you really want GLOSSY results faster, spraying is the way to go.

It’s really a pain in the ass & time consuming if you want to do the rolling methods… yes we see guys on youtube rolling it on… but think about this… do they really show you how it looks up close? Besides there paints don’t hold up!

Please post your comments below and we will reply back to you ASAP and get this thing ready for Your private viewing VERY SOON!

Thank you

Tony

    Hi Tony,
    Since I have the LearnAutoBodyAndPaint course I knew how to prep my car before I painted it. The only things I wish I did know before painting it was at what temperature to paint the car and dry time and cure time. Because I painted the car in the driveway and it was sunny and a small breeze that day and the paint dried as soon as it hit the car, it didn’t have time to flow out and then dry. So the car looked like it was meant to be flat black paint. This luckily could be wet sanded and buffed out 🙂 I painted it with Hammerite High Gloss Black which is the only paint that I could find locally that is similar to Rustoleum.

      haha… sometimes you just have to learn as you go! How are you liking the http://www.LearnAutoBodyAndPaint.com VIP Course? No worries as this project will be included in that course when it’s finished!

      Be cool

    Okay the reason I want to spray me some rustoleum is so that I could offer to paint cars for really cheap. But I would want to paint in a booth that costs 200 dollars for one full day. So I’m wondering if I can be in and out of there in like 5 hours and drive for 45 minutes back to my place with no problems. Does that mean I have to use something other than mineral spirits? And should I use rustoleum clear coat or something else that’s still cheap?


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      Yes, you need the blend that we’ve formulated. Why $200 a day? that is expensive if you ask me. You can get them for about $100. a day. You should shop around, or make your own mini booth at home? What do you plan to charge per paint job? and how much do you plan to spend on paint products per job?

      Thank you for leaving your comments… this will ALL be covered within the RPJ Course.

    Hm, maybe all the masking techniques? I feel that I keep getting paint on my trims and how in depth to get the guns setting correctly because I can never get it right even though I watch many videos on how to.


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      got it covered! see you in the course soon Alvin!

    Hey Toni, I’m excited about this course, the cost of automotive paint is holding me back. With the RPJ formula I can afford it and get alot of practice with it. When I’m comfortable and experienced with spraying, I’ll use the more expensive automotive paints to paint my car. You’ve got the best course and saved me alot of money on DVD’s and books! Thanks Toni, I think I can speak for alot of guys and gals out there, we appreciate your hard work and making this information available to all of us. Aloha and Mahalo. Mark

    hey tony! just wondering whats the best primer to use with the paint the same one from rustoleum?? and do i have to sand down the primer a bit before trowing the actual paint??


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      hey Roberto! Yes I would go with the same primer. You can also use automotive based 2k. Do you plan on rolling, spraying with a paint gun or using aerosol spray cans?


  6. jimmy

    I want to know about that secret blend. the stuff I paint doesn’t reqiure expensive paint.


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      Awesome, that we have for you. The course will be released soon. Out of curiosity what is your budget for paint? Thanks and talk soon Jimmy!

    Have an 86 GMC Diablo, found rustoleum spray can paint that matches the color exactly. Going to try two coats on the hood then see if it will color sand, or buff out? I primered it first, that turned out pretty well. But the color paint is streaked which seems typical of spray can paint. Any suggestions? Or should I stop??
    This is the hood that I am doing.

    • Tony
      6 years ago

      hey Ron, I think you need to lay the paint on thicker to flood out the streaks. Do you plan to add clear? I am assuming you don’t want to spray it on with a regular paint gun & compressor?


  8. alec santus

    Hi Tony, what is the secret rustolium pain mix as I going to paint my motorhome. I will more than likly be painting it with the roller as I dont have the room to put the motorhome indoors. So this will be painted outside, I may be able to paint it with a spray gun but due to rain and wind I think most of the paint would not go onto van and just get blown away. Keep up the good work all the best. Alec from rainy England.


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      hey Alec,
      Got it! You want the best mixture for rolling it on. How big is this trailer, what color is it and what color do you plan to paint it?


  9. Cassius Mansfield
    6 years ago

    I was wondering about the correct prep methods, need to primer, correct primer, the grit to prep the body. Also if thinning is needed do you use acetone? Best solvent for cleaning the gun.


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      Sure Cassius. Basic laquer thinner is great for cleaning guns. How do you plan on painting, using a HVLP spray gun or rolling?


  10. Gary Mindel
    6 years ago

    Tony, About a month ago, I painted my brothers boat. He did not want to spend a bunch so we went with the Rustoleum white. I wanted to know how much to thin it down so I could use my HVLP gun. I went 60/40. It went on very good, but did not seem to grab the primer very well. It did not feel as hard as using automotive paint. What could I do differently on my next Rustoleum job? I have two more boat projects coming…


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      hey Gary,

      What did you thin the 60/40 with? of course it won’t feel as hard as automotive paint, it’s rustoleum. What do you mean it didn’t grab the primer very well? do you mean It didn’t COVER?

    Interested in prep and paint blend – I’m in the middle of a body off restoration of a Buick GN and I want it to be black satin type finish. Keep up the good work, I have learned a bunch here.


    • Tony

      Awesome Luke, what do you mean paint blend? You want to blend with rustoleum paints?


  12. Richard Pranzarone

    Here goes a list of questions:

    1) My car is currently a badly painted red. I wish to paint the car white but was told that I must first remove the red or else there will eventually be bleed through creating a weird pink. Is this true?

    2) Do I need a special compressor if I use a HVLP gun or will any compressor do?

    3) Can I use your special Rustoleum formula if I choose to roll my car?

    4) The top of my car is a painted fiberglass. Do I need to do anything special to repaint this?

    Thanks again.


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      1. It can be true, and it depends on the paints you use.

      2. Any compressor will do. a 30 gal tank is recommended.

      3. Yes you can. Rolling will be very time consuming and hard to get a smooth finish. With spraying you’ll cover faster and get a glossier finish.

      4. Just a good primer.

      A question for you… What is your painting budget for this project?

      Talk soon! -Tony


      • Richard
        6 years ago

        Once I sand off all the bad paint, I may need to do some unexpected body work. But once that is done, my painting budget would be about $250 which would include a spray gun, sander, etc.

        I believe one of the good things about Rustoleum is that you minimize the paint fumes associated with regular auto paints.


        • Tony
          6 years ago

          You minimize only if you roll. With rolling you will only get OK results. Paint atomization is what makes paint flow out glossy.


  13. ron
    6 years ago

    what is the right mixture of mineral spirits to paint in the formula to spray paint with a paint gun??? what type paint gun??? what nozzle size on gun and what psi??? how many coats for complete coverage?? do you wet sand between coats??? or clear coat when done???


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      hey Ron, Yes this will be all covered in the course. Great questions and to answer a few, you’ll need a 1.3 – 1.4 nozzle size spray gun. A HVLP gun would be best. We look forward to seeing you in the RPJ members area soon!

    Great news. I’m in the process of rolling on Dulux paint on my Mitsubishi Mirage. Will the secret blend also apply to Dulux enamel paints.


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      It should to most enamels.


  15. Derek

    Hey man I love the site. I love the 50 dollar paint job in every way. I actually sprayed my car gloss black with O.K. results. The only thing I don’t like is that there are limited colors and people can tell that its a cheap paint job. Have you experimented with mixing any colors up? I saw that you can put metallic flake in a urethane clear coat? Where did you get the clear coat? I really would love to paint my car gold or dark purple. I imagine that a true gold color would be near impossible to mix up with enamel paints though. Thank you!!!


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      Yes you can. You should just get some acrylic enamel automotive paint, you can get a LOT of colors. And you’re right about rustoleum, they only have a few colors. Check out http://www.learnautobodyandpaint.com our big brother site where we show you how to paint your projects with professional automotive finishes. Be cool my friend!

    want to paint a wide satin or flat stripe on the hood of a silver car. how do I prep and what paint should I use? Thanks


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      You can use automotive paint for that… just sand with 1500 mask off the area you don’t want painted… then paint your base coat semi.


  17. Ron
    6 years ago

    How about hardener. Also spraying with laquer thinner to get it to dry quickly. Around 50 -60 a gallon for colors.

    HEy I tried to do my car black and purple mix and a roller. It started off looking ok on the first couple of coats but by the end I had a huge problem with the hair from the roller brush sticking on the car. Now my car looks like I was going for an alligator skin look. lol.. I decided I was going to give it one more try..maybe with a spray gun this time. Is this neccessary or is there something I’m not doing right ? And is there any other advice you can give to make it look more like a factory paint job because mine looks like crap!!! PLEASE HELP …lol


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      Yes, stay away from the rollers 🙂 and you’re supposed to use the FOAM roller if you roll it. I will have the course out soon that will show you how to spray this stuff on the right way! Thanks for stopping by and posting your comments!

    I’m going to roll on black rustoleum on the roof of my clk 320 silver Mercedes, i live in Michigan so its cold, i will be painting in the garage with very little heat; so will i be OK and can I roll on a clear coat or use clear coat in a spray can; can I then wet sand and buff and polish.

    any tricks to make my roof blend with my windows


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      I don’t think you want to use Rustoleum paint on a Mercedes buddy. Why don’t you want to wait till it’s a little warmer and use basic automotive paints?

    Hi Tony:
    I am an old hot-rodder (58!) and have a BLAND Alpine White Rodeo that I want to paint flames on. The car’s paint is perfect, so do I tape my flames off first, then do prep? Would you roll the base flame color on then use spray to blend? I painted my horse trailer without near the prep needed for a car, but after 3 years, it still looks new! But my Rodeo makes me look like a stooopid Soccer Mom! That I am NOT!
    What’s your advice? (I am an artist, so taping flames free-hand is no biggie – except I cannot remember what tape to use – painter’s? or ?)
    What’s your advice? I have to pimp this car out or I’m throwing a bullet at my head!


    • Tony
      6 years ago

      lol. Use fine line tape. It’s usually blue and come in various sizes with the most popular being 1/8 and 5/16 sizes. I would 2,000 grit the hood, fenders etc… then mask your flames, then paint your base followed by clear coat. Good luck!!

    Hey Tony, I’m thinking about painting work truck using Rustoleum Flat Black. Since it is a work truck im not planning on smoothing out the little dings it has, just flat out paint it. The original paint is already burnt, and faded by this hot west Texas sun. After sanding, can I skip the primer and head straight to the paint? Whats better, mineral spirits or acetone? 1:1 Ratio is what I have read on other sites, is that about right? What PSI should I spray at?


  24. Charlie
    5 years ago

    Tony,
    I would like to paint a van w/rustoleum paint. I would like to use a sponge cigar roller, would I get a nice finish? Also what are your recommendations on
    preparing the surfice. Limited work area for spraying, worried about over spray on
    the neighbors. If I do spray can I purchase a cheap canister sprayer from Harbor
    Frieght. Will that do a good enough job?
    .


    • Tony

      Yes, that can work!

    Hey, I have been reading and researching your websites as well as other information on painting cars. I have done some refurbishing and painting with things like my daughters Radio Flyer wagon (Bubblegum Pink now), but have never done anything on a car. I have a solid white 1990 300zx in good condition with 2 small (dime-sized) rust spots on the rear quarter panel that I want to repair. Planning on sanding, using a self-etching primer, body filler, and using spray can rustoleum base and clear coat with wet sanding after clear coat. Am I on the right track here? Also, since my interior is burgundy red, I think that my only color choices in the future that flow with that color are white, black, or some shade of grey. Any thoughts if I want to go with a flat-charcoal? Thanks!

    hey tony, im planning on painting my lacrosse helmet cage with the rustoleum metallic gold titanium spray paint. the cage is chrome titanium right now, i was wondering if i have to put some kind of primer on before the rustoluem spray? or just go right with the spray. Thanks


    • Tony
      5 years ago

      Yes, I would lightly scuff it, prime it and paint it. You need to prime metal before painting over it! Sorry for the delay, been busy! good luck 🙂

    Tony,

    Took a brief glance so far and watched a few vids you’ve published.. I have an 88 Ninja i’ve completely stripped down to frame.

    I have bare metal as everything paintable has a sandblasted (silica) finish. Luckily I haven’t had any flash rust yet (sandblasted 4 days ago) basement stored/ low humidity.

    I am curious how durable rustoleum oil based gloss would be on my frame/swingarm/kick stands???

    I have already bought my PPG (OMNI) Ford SVT Electric Blue Base coat + Clear Coat + Hardener + Reducer materials for the fairing/tank misc. MH168,MC260,

    I’m going for the Epoxy 2k Primer tonight..

    Should I just pick up black base coat and shoot that or is the Rustoleum gallon of gloss black (oil base) i have, a good option for the frame..

    Thanks for your help..


    • Tony
      5 years ago

      Get black base coat! I only recommend rustoleum if you’re on a tight budget. That’s why I came up with this concoction “RPG GOLD” if you have the money and know about automotived based paints, then shoot base clear.

    Tony,

    The Rust-Oleum available at my Lowe’s is not the same as you have in your course. The one in your video says “Protective Enamel”, while the one I got says “High Performance Protective Enamel” and is also labeled as Professional and oil base. Your can is white while mine is gray. Your thin yours with mineral spirits while mine says to thin with acetone only. Mine says, “enhanced formula for superior coverage and durability”. Am I still good to use the one I bought? Do I need to thin with mineral spirits or acetone?
