I know if has been reposted a few times but I can't find it. It was a longitudinal study about the practicality of using rattle-can black paint on Model T fenders and body.

Anyone have a link?

Thanks,
Jim

I painted my '24 Touring in its entirety with rattle can paint. Not the best paint job in the world, but it's 5 years old, cost $80 and still holding up pretty well. Can't complain!

The Rustoleum appliance paint does a nice job if used correctly.

Much appreciated,
Jim

I have used it only on small dings. Unfortunately, most of the stuff you get doesn't quite match the original even though it is called Gloss Black. I suppose if you got enough to paint the whole part or the whole car, you might be OK, however, the real spray gun gives a better and smoother finish.

I found that the original paint on my '23s splash
pans were impervious to gas dripping from the
carb until i repainted them with a spray bomb
rustoleum type paint.Henry's paint was better because gas did not melt it, bubble it, or even
touch it!!!!.

James:

You may with to google "Rustoleum $50 paint job".

We have met previously, I live in Batavia, IL. (You lent me your hub puller, a few years back).

If you would like to discuss this method, and see the results, call me at: 630-244-2285.

It's not the can, it's what's in the can. Most rattle-can paints are over thinned and very low on solids. In paints, neither black nor white are the "absolutes" one presumes. On comparison you can be amazed at the range of color different formulations of either one offers.

Yeah, you can use all those rattle cans, but your T deserves better. The only good thing about rattle can paint is it comes off fairly easy for the next guy.
