Default Rino liner paint

I painted my wifes truck with a rino liner metalic paint. I didn't expect much out of it but I am amazed on the outcome. I saved myself from buying a new truck... lol

Default Finished product

Added new lights and boom, like new... only a tough paint to damage. The finish is a satin with metalic that really sparkles in the sun. It's a pewter and black combo.

Nice work! Did it take a special gun? I'd imagine it's a good bit thicker than your usual high build primers and such.

Yes it takes a special gun I purchased for $80. TCP global sells the kit, paint, hardner, and the gun comes with it but if your painting the exterior of a vehicle, buy the higher grade gun for the best results.

My son wanted his Nissan Juke painted so we did that first. He wanted a pretty rough feel so we played around with the air pressure, distance from the car/paint gun, and spray pattern. I did a lot of research on YouTube too...

We ended up at 85 psi, 24-30" from the car, and a small circle spray pattern. I also used about 10% reducer in the paint. It turned out pretty cool. He's getting a lot of comments already.

My truck, I used 15% reducer, 14-18" from the vehicle, sprayed vertical and horizontal and circles to make it blend smooth and kept the same air pressure. I had more waste because of the two tone scheme.

It dries quickly. 3-4 hours to the touch, or taping for another color.... I believe 7 days to fully cure.

Almost forgot, they have an adhesive promoter to help with tight places. That helped with the jambs and emblems. I wanted the embossed look.

We used 80 grit sandpaper to scuff the body, primer etch for the bare metal places, etc... it's a pretty easy process.

Is this the same stuff you use to coat a truck bed?

Yes it is... they have all kinds of colors... it's awesome... here is the link. For 8 quarts, it's only $289.96 which was enough to do my entire truck... jambs and all. I even hit the original bed liner to make it all match and fresh.

I can get some closer pictures if you guys want. You cant see the metalic in the ones I posted.

Overall, it a fine rough yet smooth feel with a satin finish. I could probably wax it pretty easy.

This link talks about how it held up after a year... pretty impressive. Use a spray wax to help make cleaning easy and also simple green to get rid of the bird bombs.

Check out this link.

Thanks for the pointers. I'll probably practice with respraying the bed of my truck. The original owner didn't get a real thick application and this would be a good practice run. What kind/size compressor are you running?
