    just yesterday i went into a store called "Quality Farm and Country". apparently they are going out of business. while browsing around in there i came accross some Quart sized containers of Navy Blue Rust-Oleum. they were like $2.00 perquart. i thouhgt this was a great bargain. i have heard so many good things about it. can anyone give me some info/uses for this paint? what can i use it for? i bought a gallon of it (4quarts). any ideas. it was just a deal that i couldnt pass up. thanx.

    i used high temp rustoleum to repaint my engine bay. basically put it anywhere you dont want to rust. its supposed to be a decent rust preventer better than just regular paint anyway

    i dont think it would be to bad but i think it works best on bare metal not 100% sure. but i think im actually gonna do mine with por-15 it wont hurt to do your interior in it though an extra coat of paint is alway better to keep moisture out

    I painted my whole Suburban with Rist-o-leum gloss white. Turned out pretty good for $100 of paint.

    If you can get it for really cheap, or if you have some leftover cans, you can line them up and shoot them. They take off like a rocket when shot with say a .22cal. Just a suggestion.

    you may think it's funny, but itsnot
