Rattle Can Paint Job?

I'm getting ready to paint my jeep and have heard of people spraying them with Krylon. My jeep is a beater and I don't want to spend big money painting it. So post your pics of your rattle can paint job...so I can get some idea's. Thanks guys!!

I wouldn't rattle can the whole thing, you should be thinking more like using a bed liner type material, check out Durabak. It isn't super cheap, but so far it wears pretty well, I used it on a utility trailer and I have a gallon to be used to do my tub floors soon!

First rattle can paint job. The red is the original color.
Attachment 2686

Second paint job. If it is a beater then go for it. What is the worst thing that could happen? it'll look like crap and you're out $20.

Do yourself a favor though...get one of those trigger type things that attaches to the top of the cans. It will keep your hand from cramping and give you more control.

x2, I just rattle canned my hard top and after primer I went to get one of those because I couldn't open my hand and had a blister on my index finger.

Thanks...I'm finally finishing it up after about year. The weather is changing and my doors were still red and I don't want to go through another winter with mis-matched doors again.

Any paint job, rattle can or not, is all about the prep work. I probably have 30 hours into sanding and repairing into the second paint job. Of course that includes the flat fender conversion too. And yes it is 100% Krylon spray paint. I used a palm sander for most of the heavy sanding and hand sanded a few times between primer coats to smooth everything out. It's about as good of a job as you can get with all the wrong tools.

It doesnt matter what you use to paint, rattle can or spray gun, like daddy said, ITS ALL ABOUT PREPWORK (read: SANDING and more SANDING) Then let her cure for a few weeks and buff her to a shimmer. Oh and wet the floor b4 u steart to paint to keep the dust down.

Tint up some Rhino Coat and be done with it. Took me no time at all and now when I feel like kicking something I just kick my jeep.

Here's my repair and rattle can job on my CJ hardtop. For $160 it was worth a little work!

i vote use rust oleum. you have to roll on like 20 coats and wet sand it but after that and buffing it looks just like a real paint job and lasts. search on it on google and youll see what can be done.

I think it contrasts well with the green. Plus it's the same color as the factory soft top and my interior. I've wanted a green jeep with a tan top since I was 7 years old, now that I finally have one, I see no need to change it.
