Roller Painting With Hammerite
Posted 06 April 2012 - 01:24 PM
Would this paint have the same sort of finish as people get with rustoleum? If anyone has used this and could upload some pics that would be great.

I would use thinner along with it.
Has anyone used this on a car?

You have a car, so use car paint which is designed for the job. Will get a better finish and it won't devalue your car.........

Don't forget that this forum is full of people that think if you don't do everything by the book or the way they did it you will kill yourself and all your family and your mini will explode. God forbid you paint a metal car that is prone to rust with metal paint that is designed to protect against rust!
"you should pay £1000+ for a paint job because that's how much I had to pay!"
Either way please let us know how it goes because I've been thinking of having a go at painting my car with rustoleum this summer but with a spray gun instead of rollers.
I think hammerite and rustoleum have a 'built in primer' as long as the surface is sanded well so there is a key for the paint to stick to. Just try a small patch and see what happens.

I will paint a small part inside my boot with hammerite and post the results here so you can see how it turns out, then I'll paint the whole car with rustoleum and I post my progress here and the finished result
I've put some shiney black hammerite on my brake calipers and backing plates while they were off and they seem to have held up well but I only slapped it on with a brush. It self levels suprisingly well though which would help getting a smooth finish. I don't know what it's like to polish though and it's only been on a couple of months.

however, i have thinned hammerite down before and sprayed it though a gun to great effect, however this was always on the bottom of cars whislt on a ramp. i have done test runs on other surfaces though and the finish is very good of thinned correctly.
