Rustoleum's not very durable ..
all the time on prep work and painting one wants a top coat that will last..
good success has been achieved with foam brushes using automotive paint with a good long pot life,

still lots of sanding to make it smooth ..

I disagree, there was a post on utube the guy had painted his car with this method over 4 yrs ago, and the paint still shines. as VT mentioned, its all about the prep work and patience.

kindah shame you put the metal patches on the outside of the door if you drilled a hole in the patch , made it so it could pass though the widest part of the hole you and hold it in place by a piece of wood and a woodscrew screwed through the wood on the outside of the door in the little drilled hole couldve stuck it on from the back leave it to dry get the screw out the wood off and skim an extra bit of filler over the big rusthole before sanding it flat with the rest of the sheetmetal
it wouldve made the repair practicly invisible and only be a little more work .
im planning on doing the same thing over here , the only thing is we dont have rustoleum but sumtin by another brandname and ive been told its made different because of european laws i just hope i get the same result

Never tried this method but I did Spray my Tahoe on the cheap last summer used the duplicolor paintshop series laquer bought a HVLP gun hooked it to my 33gallon compressor. I cleared it 5 times using a satin technique that I loved at 1st but have grown tired of. it is not a lot of money to do just lots of labor. in the past I did all of the body work and would bring it to Maaco for a $250 paint job and I will probably go that route in the future unless I had a much smaller car the Tahoe is a monster much like that F350.

5 1/2 Quarts of Color 3 quarts of clear
