Hello guys,

I have seen many Rat Look cars where the paint has been rollered on.
Like Wrongs-Uns Punto for example.
I was wondering what kind of paint I would need to use.
Looking for a sandstone-y beige or a burgundy red, in flat.

cheers guys and gals

I too would be interested in learning more about the process and the materials involved

Take a look on eBay for military polyurethane paint. I picked up 2.5l of NATO Green for about 25 quid, rollered it on in a few coats and it looked great. I've since resprayed black and I still get the green coming through as the black chips off, nothing will shift that stuff, hard as nails.

All I did for prep was mask up all the obvious bits, go over the whole car with a nylon pan scourer to rough up the surface slightly, then degrease the whole thing with white spirit. I then used a good quality Harris gloss roller, one of the spongy ones to put a base coat on, then while that dried I went round with a good brush to get all the bits I couldn't reach with a roller, then repeated a few times till it was all nice and uniform. Only took an afternoon.

There are plenty of good tutorials though if you look around too
