  • DIY Closed Door Respray - Progress So Far & Questions We Have

    Hey guys,

    Today we started to sand back and prime the little Subaru Fiori.
    We've gotten that far and are left wondering whats the cheapest way to ad colour to the car?

    Rattle cans? Rollers? Paintbrush? even considered the electric Ozito spray paint gun from bunnings
    its doesnt need to be pretty or perfect really just a fairly uniform red that will last the better part of a year

    would really love to hear back from as many people as possible



    *Yes we are both fully aware this isnt the right way to paint a car, its just for fun*

    Okay so my experience of rolling paint on a car leaves bubbles so sharp you cut yourself on it! This also makes it hard to wash because it shreds the mitt or sponge lol

    A brush will leave a textured finish.

    It's probably cheaper to buy the little electric spray gun and paint - rather than rattle cans. expect dirt/dust to get into the paint but it'll be a good finish considering where you're spraying the car.

    Buy some of that plastic dust sheet, it's dead cheap and you'll be able to mask off the whole bumper, wheels and windows so you won't end up with loads of specks of paint all over it.

    One of my friends gets called Captain Overspray! hahahahaha so we know all about masking off properly now. it's worth it, even if it is only a bit of fun.
