In August, Ryan Carter told us how to paint our car for under $300
. Yes, it can be done, and quite well, too. If you followed the step by step instructions, your car is now sporting a pretty new paint job.
If you don't happen to have $300 this Christmas season, Instructables user Styluss gives detailed step by step instructions on how to paint a car for $75
. He used high density foam brushes to apply Rustoleum high gloss white paint to his 1989 Chevy Beretta. He didn't want to do much sanding, and discovered that using the foam brushes meant that he didn't have, thus making less work for himself.
I advise doing this at your own risk, and so does Styluss. If you don't have enough money to take your car to a professional, painting your car yourself is a great idea, but as with all do it yourself projects, proceed with caution. You don't want to end up with a crappy paint job because you failed to completely read Styluss's instructions.
