I built this bumper and had it Rino-lined. The cost was $ 75.00

|JustinApperson||Im actually a Marine Aviation Mech and we rattle can everything... The best technique is to hold the can 6-8" away and paint the width not the length(there is more chance for you to not hold the can at an even distance threw out, there for the paint will be uneven) and do short bursts. Start spraying off one side, move across the project and release. And then repeat moving down slightly. The first coat should just be a dusting of paint. This is to provide the most even finished results. You will not be disappointed. I just did my fender flares and bumpers with rust-o-lium spray bed liner and mine look OEM new. Any questions just message me and ill explain a little more in depth.|

Good job! Looks awesome!
I was going to do the spray bedliner method to save some $ but I got a good deal from the local powdercoating company.
They did a great job on the bumper. And I made sure they got the inside of the bumper powdercoated well so it doesnt rust since its raw steel.

I think I saved it!
For anyone who's never rattle canned before, just take your time. There was a week of trial and error for me . . . Great feeling paint and install on your own!

I think it's been salvaged . . .
I wetsanded her all down with 600 grit then resprayed using a much better technique (slow, with propper overlapping)
Letting her dry a few days then will install . . . we'll see! thanks for the help!

2. Hold the rattle can about 6-8 inches from the item your spraying.
3. Scuff it up again and re-paint.

|BillyPete||I have used the hammered paint on alot of projects, I buy it in quarts and then use a cheepo wagner airless sprayer to apply. The end result is amazing and wont give you the tiger stripe look you now have with the RC.|

Get a can of bedliner and spray away
|05-08-2013 12:04 AM|
|05-07-2013 11:51 PM|
Another option is to sand it down and respray with bedliner? just gonna put some 120 grit, 220 grit, then 320 grit and spray it with the bedliner?
I'm have no clue . . .

Attached some photos of the current paint
Notice some of the tiger stripes. This is the best looking so far
Tips on how to salvage are appreciated

Bedliner is cool in more ways then just black , it makes a really good base and is pretty even to spray
Now what could have help is bedlining it and then go over with the hammer stuff , when I need colors I use bedliner and go over it with any color I want
Here is a better picture

|Jaker jk||Why didn't you just use spray can bedliner , would have came out really nice|
|05-07-2013 07:00 PM|
|ohioviper||For the cost of paying someone to paint it or powder coat it you can buy your very own air compressor and spray gun and do a professional job on it yourself and anything else you want to do later,plus you will now have air for power tools ect.|

I sanded down a little bit and sprayed it again with a better technique (going the entire length of the bumper and not doubling back and forth). It looks a lot better, but now the glossiness is in the form of vertical lines LOL.
I think I will take the advice and will try to wet sand it when it all dries up, then buff it out
This is my first time painting any automotive stuff, so lessons learned there.
I really dont want to send it out to get it professionally done, I've gone this far and will finish the job HOOAH
|05-07-2013 04:00 PM|
I have painted mini bikes etc this way. After painting I just wet sanded with very fine grit and buffed out.
It looked even, very good. Some others thought I sent it out and had it done.
|05-07-2013 03:35 PM|
I think the issue with your technique is that you possibly sprayed too close... You get a thick first coat in spots and that creates that "banded" look or different levels of glossiness.
If rattle cans are a good option for you, I'd do a light wet sand and spray it again. Stay at least 10-12" away and don't concern yourself with getting it all covered in one coat. Good luck!

|robdizzle||I'd would sand or grind it all off and use duplicolor spray in bed liner. I've used it many times for my racks on my quad and a few things for my jk. Always turns out great if you prep right.|
