    Well i contacted Rust Bullet about a Military Discount and the hooked me up pretty good. I have 2 Gallons on its way to my house. I was wondering, Can i apply it with a Brush, or will it leave brush strokes? I want to cover my whole Body with it. I will prep the body, but i dont have access to a paint booth or sprayer. Thanks.

    rent a paint booth for a day? no access means you dont own one or their isnt one anywhere around?... there's a company that sells pressurized air and a small tank you can fill with paint to paint... or rent a paint sprayer from a rental store..

    I've done the interior of my wife's FJ40, and just completed the interior of my '61 Buick. RustBullet will leave brush strokes; it is not a self-leveling paint. Instructions say not to spray using compressed air, as RustBullet would react with the moisture in compressed air.

    Their application guide doesn't say anything about not using compressed air. It just says to use an effective moisture trap.
