    Default Painting Your Trailer with Rustoleum and a Roller

    My neighbor has a 1975 Sanger Superjet. He is going to paint his trailer with a roller and rustoleum. I told him he should at least rattle can the fenders. How many of you have painted your trailer with a roller and rustoleum..I know many have. How did it turn out..any suggestions.

    Ive seen pictures of cars painted this way. Of course spraying is going to give better results. Depends on how good he wants it to look. I had a friend roller on master series chassis black on the bottom of a 58 vw ghia. Came out smooth as glass. You know he tried to sand blast some of that stuff off of a gas tank. Could barely get it off. And it can go right over rust stopping it by preventing oxygen from getting to it thinking about doing my trailer in thst stuff.

    P.o.r. 51 black can be rolled right onto rust and settles smooth as ya can want.no primer needed

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Do you use a foam roller or a short nap..do you need to scuff the old paint..do you need more than one coat or does that cause problems..thanks

    Foam, never hurts to sand prior to help make the finish smooth.you can roll ot rite over a rusted smooth surface

    POR15 loves rusted metal.....has its own special water based prep solution....and isnt uv stable....unless it has changed recently.
    I was working on a 77 trans am once upon a time....was por-15-ing panels as I got them straight enough for paint.
    It doesnt work so good on clean....smooth....uncurroded metal.
    I painted the trunk lid....and the next day I peeled the whole thing off in one piece.
    Also....I have painted with por 15....then as its tacking up....you can top coat with a rattle can....for uv stability.
    Btw....it u get it on hour skin.....get use to looking at it for a while.lol

    I used implement paint from Tractor Supply with a foam roller to do the trailer for my Rebel. Turned out surprisingly good.

    I shot my trailer with high gloss john deere black paint and it turned out bitchn.40bucks a gallon and mix ratio requires john deere thinner but the small can will do. i used 2 cans of their thinner, 1 to clean my gun.mostly bare metal, shot right on it no primer.45psi thru a top fed cheap hvlp gun.repainted the whole trailer for 90 in parts, thats all including sandpaper/mix cups/sticks/paint/thinner.

    Fyi, that nonslip sandpaper stuff they put on fender steps can be found at home depot , just ask for wide nonslip tape for stairs theyll know what ya mean.i bought 4inch wide and used a paper cutter( the lil table thingy with blade on the swing arm you pull down).cut the slip tape to match fender steps and i even used alil on top of the fender for my beer lol gives a place to sit tools on fenders without fear of a scratch too

    when I did my dads boat build i told him i was going to spray the trailer with rustoleum ( I painted my mud truck with the stuff and really liked the outcome) He was impatient and when i showed up the next day he was going at the trailer with the gallon of rustoleum and a foam roller. Ill have to look for pics. Its not show quality but it looks better than the brown the trailer was painted before.

    Years ago, a buddy brought a few quarts of rustoleum and some brushes to the lake (oh and an ice chest). Launched his boat and set out to paint his trailer. He was a decent house type painter and took his time (paint a little, drink a little). Scuffed it with scotch brite and brush painted it. Took most of a 2 day weekend and it wasn't show quality but turned out pretty damn good...

    TheSamba.com :: VW Classifieds - MS Rust Sealer

    Try this stuff. Works great and is UV stable. I bought it from the guy on this site. No problems. He has a great reputation among the VW enthusiasts. And his prices are cheaper than trying to get por15. This stuff is better. I plan on using it on my trailer.

    I used a foam roller and Rustoleum on mine. Levels out nice and doesn't run as long as you don't get carried away. Sorry, no close-up photos.
