    Hello, if at some point I wanted to paint my car as a rookie, what would be the cheapest way of doing it? I've just considered a removable paint such as plastidip to practice or see how it looks. My car was originally copper and I want to repaint as such or maybe military sand color.

    Fine job! My El Camino has had rustoleum satin on it for at least a decade. When it starts to look like crap or get chalky I just hose it down with WD40. It's kind of a white trash wax for satin paint.

    Damn, what a good job laying it down! You make me motivated to spray my 78 now! I think it is time for you to experience plasti-dipping the trim rings on the wheels black to see how you like the blacked out look.... I think that could look pretty good!

    I did an S10 with Rustoleum once. It held up fine and I don't even think he washed it once. I told him a single stage satin would be better but we did it black with white stripes for all of like 35 bucks. Normally I don't do or support this sort of thing but it looked good for what it was.

    Ahh yes here is the skunk
