rattle can paint job pricing.

Say if someone wanted to rattle can paint their 92 yj with minor rust damage. How would one go about it. Strip the old paint prime and paint? And about how much am I looking to spend on paint?

High-speed drill + wire wheels to remove paint and rust. Look for Rustoleum rubberized undercoating (primer+paint in one). $4/can for slow-dry, $9/can for fast-dry. Full exterior job including undercoating will take ~30 cans.

Good luck!

30 cans? Holy cow. Would the slow dry work just as well?

Yes, just have to be careful working around it while it dries.

Quick-Dry is tacky in about a half hour, totally dry in 4 hours
The slower drying stuff is tacky in about an hour, dry in 24-48 hours

If you've got the time and space to let it sit undisturbed for 2 days, I'd recommend the slow-dry stuff anyway. You'll have less micro-bubbles from outgassing.

Just realize, a rattle-can paint job is gonna look like a rattle-can paint job. You can take your time and do layered effects with the undercoating, but it's still gonna look how it looks.

I'm going to be taking out the worst of the rust on my heep this summer with rattle cans, but hopefully over the winter will be pulling panels one by one and shooting them with monstaliner from a shutz gun. Total investment is looking to be ~$800 to do interior, exterior, and underbody, but will be totally worth it to me to have a real rugged lining that will keep the rust at bay.

Rust-oleum has a new auto body paint. I just did my wrangler in 2 coats with 3 qts. It's has a built in clear boat but I still clear coated over it. If you get it from summit racing its only $22 a quart. You can use a super fine roller to put it on. It i used a spray gun.

Ummm Just a thought why not prep and de-trim the vehicle and take it to Maaco for a cheap paint job 300.00 I think is what they start at.

Its going to look a whole lot better than a blotchy rattle can job too.

I have seen some roller, brush and rattle can paint jobs that were amazing! They are very labor intensive with wet sanding between coats etc. but like I said "they were amazing".

Not everyone has a blotchy rattle can job. I've see some pretty bad maaco paint jobs too.

I have done a couple of vehicles with a cheapo HVLP spray gun and rustoleum hand mixed to the color I wanted and thinned with mineral spirits enough to spray through the gun (3:1?). A quick wet sand and it looked great, if you had to buy a gun you could still probably get away for less than $100 with all of your supplies. And it has got to be better for the environment / your lungs than using 30 cans of spray paint.

This one was done with rattle cans. And in sections as I completed the body work. I have the tools and the ability to do a conventional paint job, but I wanted something on it that if it took some rock or tree rash out in the woods, it would be as easy as re-spraying that panel.

The 30 cans is a reality. I went through 24 for the green, and 10 for the black. Black was for the top, flares, and rocker guards.

Paint is what you pay for you want a poor job then most cases rattle can and maaco will get you that. I repeat most cases not all. I am a little different then most as I can paint what I want when I want as I work at a body shop and I have the tools to do so. I plan on changing the color of my jeep just trying to decide what color to go. But I am planning on going with enamel paint as it is hard to scratch. 200 in material and my time 2 days one to due trim and prep and one to paint and reassemble and I am great.

I seen some good rattle can jobs but I seen them on trailers where it any color over faded paint was better than what it was.

I like the color of it. The jeep I just got about a month ago was painting same way and it didn't turn out so well especially on the hood. The paint has faded also. I wish I could do a job like you have done on yours.

You right they all look good far off. I found the hard way when I went to look at a truck two hours away. Man was I shocked. I was so afraid to test drive it. I told him I wasn't interested in it.

I wanted a cheap, matte black paint job. So I used about 10 of the 0.98$ cans at walmart and it cost me.. well.. 10$ for this paint job. There is one spot on the hood I messed up. But it won't be there for long. I wasn't even trying that hard

I have around $100 in mine. I used premium Rustoleum (the double coverage can) Works great, goes on thick and is durable!

Lang,
Not sure, but with as much as I wheel my jeep and get scratches and damage, I'm not too worried about it.
