Hi-Ya everyone.... I will be painting and priming with the Rust-O-leum oil based paint products. I painted before with Rustoleum, but dident use Acetone. I used Paint Thinner... The paint job turned out excellect, and with 5 coats had a shine, mirror just like car paint. handeled like car paint, sprayed like car paint. In fact, it all felt like car paint. very happy with the end result.
I will be doing my 62 with a special mix of RustOleum (white and blue for a lighter blue) Enamel (of course). Rustoleum paints are oil based.
BUT, I read on the Rustoleum can to use Acetone. I diden't read this before. But then, I diden't look. They do not recomond Paint Thinner, Mineral Sprits, and of all things listed NOT to use is gasoline...LOL
Anyway, I wanted to know the difference between Paint Thinner and Acetone. I want to know the differances between handeling, Spraying, How much to use for spraying (I just always keep looking at the mixing stick drip for consistency).... Would like to know if it effects the end result. Shine, hardness, and such.
I have not used hardner, or any other chemical in the paint. Always a natural dry in a warn booth, at least for the first few hours. The Ranger (below) was in for 2 weeks (recomonded curing time) before I drove the truck out.
Should I use Acetone or stay with the standard Paint Thinner as I was tought way back in the 70's?.
