It will look like a rattle can paint job... or if you could afford the appropriate amount of paint in the rattle can you can afford having someone paint it.

I would learn to paint with the proper equipment first, even cheap paint equipment would give you better results, and the cost would be nearly the same as all those rattle cans.

Just going to throw this out there. Try Monstaliner. 160 for a gallon, catalyst, color, and a quart of chassis saver. Do a bit of prep work, and put monstaliner on, and it will make a world of difference, and won't chip or faade, and easy enough for a brand new person to do.

There were also some other mods done. lol. but I did a bad job, and it still looks better (My body work needs smooted more, and cause bleeding.)

I love it, and looks great.
If interested, I will get you the two codes.

Rattle can will look great if you do the prep work. Problem with rattle cans is the paint isn't very durable. Rustoleum is a good way to go on the cheap if you are ok with one of their colors.

I bet you could do the job yourself with a cheap spray gun and some Eastwood/Summit/Auto Zone budget paint. That's how I did mine and it turned out decent.

Try plasti-dip? Their kits are rather affordable and certainly a DIY project.

As long as you do good prep work the rattle can will look ok but it wont stay pretty for long. I just did my car hauler and horse trailer with rustoleum. It came out pretty good but for the cost of like 100 cans of spray paint I could have got a cheap spray gun, real paint and clearcoat... A jeep wont take that much rattle can but it wouldnt take much real paint either and you can get a cheap spray gun for a little bit of nothing. The only thing that would be a big cost if you didnt already have one or access to one is a compressor... You can get pretty nice compressors at hobo freight for good prices... The car hauler is dirty now but here is a pic. Its actually metallic black too. I like it, for rattle can.. Heres a before shot...

100% Krylon rattle cans. I tried Rustoleum last go around and the Krylon seems to last a little better.

The best thing about a rattle can paint job is when you get that tree or rock rash and its an easy fix.

I painted my entire dash and panels with a rattle can. It is looking pretty good.

I 2-toned my solid doors with Rustoleum. All the extra stuff around my Jeep has been painted with either Rustoleum or tractor impliment paint from Tractor Supply.

A rattle can paint job...It's all in how you prep it and spray it. The entire body, frame, and hard top are painted with a rattle can. And if you look closely, it shines just as good as if it were sprayed with a paint gun.

I have a total of $60 in that paint job, and if I get some rock or tree rash, all I need is a $7 can of paint for a touch up.

The UV protection is just not there in a rattle can. Spend the money and do it the right way if ya want it to last.

I'm going with Rustolium oil based rolled on then wet sanded and buffed. It just takes elbow grease to get it to look good. Youtube it before you give me grief. Maybe I'll post my progress.

When I bought it, it needed rust repair and the paint was a mess. I used Rustoleum midnight black metallic. If you can get a nice even wet coat, it comes out pretty nice, but that is easier said then done with spray can metallic.

The gorilla on the hood was a stencil and Duplicolor wheel paint.

Did this last summer. It looks better than it did before I started. The Jeep was a ugly off white color that used to be white. Ill be changing the paint scheme again this summer because Ive decided after about a year I dont like it lol

I'm a huge fan of monstaliner. Predator green exterior and black interior.



Don't mind the excess on the bumpettes. Hoping to get a real rear bumper soon.

Most of my '89 is either red or rust colored. It will soon have a few patches of silver from a door skin that I got from a Chevy Silverado. Of course it will have some burn marks from the welder, and the black from the bed liner the PO sprayed the interior with, and the diamond plate rockers covering the rust. Oh yeah…the topic. I have a few cans of BBQ black that I may hit any bare spots with. You know what…that stuff along with the dents, I kind of think it is a thing of beauty! It is going to look real cool when I mount the plow frame. I love this thing. I should have bought a Jeep years ago! Party on!
