    Now that sounds frickin sweet. I might end up trying this on the 75, and if the paint on my Mark VIII isn't salvagable maybe that too.

    Night Wolf links to an interesting thread about a paint called TREMCLAD, which is the brand of Rust-Oleum that is distributed and sold in Canada. Check out their web site here for more information.

    I did not read the entire thing, but it brought back a memory. In '93, I was delivering furniture for a living. I was changing jobs, so I had to remove the decals off of my truck. The decals removed the paint also. So since I needed to do some sanding, I figured I'd put a "cheap" paint job on it. I used a friends electric spray gun, and about four gallons of rustoleum white. I didn't thin it, I just layed it on. Except for where it ran in some spots, it came out pretty nice. Not pro quality by any means, but it accomplished what I was doing. Cost was about $80.00. Beat spending $1,000.00 for a real paint job.

    Oh, and by the way, that Charger looks awesome. I will be picking up some rustoleum, in a spray can, spraying something, and buffing it out. Just to see how shiny I can get it. I also want to see if real auto clear will stick to it.
