Gotta paint the front grill and the two sliding door cover thingys.

At least it's all one color. And besides, it's my winter beater!

Don't hate me because I'm cheap! Laughing

Did you use any hardener? I'm getting ready to spray my Jetta with Tremclad and was wondering if anyone has had any luck using a hardener with it.

A lot of people have tried to discourage me from using Tremclad but seeing stuff like this gives me hope. They claim the shine doesn't last but the bed of my doublecab has been painted with it for over a year and it still looks good.

So! It would seem that there is at least one Province of Canada, which has a statutory, annual roadworthiness inspection, similar to the British MOT test!?! Very Happy

Now, I'm just waiting to find out wheter at least on state of the USA, has yet seen the light!?!

Now, I'm just waiting to find out whether at least on state of the USA, has yet seen the light!?!

I've seen so many times references to trimclad and Rustoleum. Is this the same Rustoleum that folks are referring to:

Thats it Barefootwestie. Ive used it on a poptob before. Turned out great. Never used it on the actual bus though. Can you get it colored at a paint shop? I would consider using it, but I like stock colors.

I just think it's somewhat humorous, as I've used that stuff for years around the house and never given much thought to it. And all of a sudden people are using to paint vehicles. Very Happy

Not sure about the tinting, but I would find it hard to believe that you couldn't find a shade that you might want based on the colors found on their website.

I think it's all the same company:

I mixed green, yellow and red to get REALLY close to the original sage green.
