Painting vehicle wheels?

I have a 2000 jeep wrangler and I''ve been doing some homemade modifications. I was wondering if you can paint the rims/wheels with regular spray paint instead of getting charged an arm and a leg to have a professional do it? Will the paint last a while?

You can paint it with reguslar paint as lomg as you clean it real good and ruff it up with sandpaper. You will have to spray primer on it first before painting it. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate this answer.

I painted a section of my garage floor with a cup of paint 1/4c oil base acrylic mixed with 3/4 c water base latex...will it ever dry thoroughly? it is drying slowly and is really sticky. will I just have...


did you ever try to mix water with oil? what was the result? are you sure that you can cross the street without adult holding your hand?

unfortunately you need to remove all that paint, just drop few shovels of fine sand over, and scrape it... sand will adhere to the tp surface of the pain and will allow you to scrape it. after you scrape it off, use any degreaser or similar product to wash reminder off, leave it for few weeks to dry through and then in small patch try if it would accept latex pain, roll it very, very thinly and leave overnight, if it is dry (solid dry) after 24hrs and do not peel off, you can then use this paint on the rest of your garage floor.

now, i would advice strongly against painting garage floor with any paint except concrete paint (they are usually water based with strongly alcalic ph), and after that use concrete seal. this should give you long lasting surface, sealed from oils, dust, water and whatever contaminant you can imagine in the garage.

What size tip to use to paint interior using a graco 170 spray


The size tip you use depends on what you are spraying, how thin/thick it is and if you something like Flotrol to make it flow on the work better. Tip sizes are given as a decimal number and here's how to read them.
Example: .517 (the one most people, including you, need)
- The 5 means you'll get a ten inch swath of paint with the tip 12 inches from the work surface. 5's are for general painting, 2's and 3's are usually used for trim work.
- The 17 is the diameter of the orifice (.017) the paint passes through to get properly atomized. The larger the orifice, the thicker the medium you can effectively spray. .013's are used for very thin things like stain. .015's & .017's are for latex paints, .019's are for enamils, and .021 - .027 are reserved for thicker things like elastomerics.
Most likely if you are using an interior, latex paint, you'll need the .517 tip. Be sure to strain your paint so you'll get an even fan of paint and the best results. Even brand new paint has sand impurities in it that will effect the tips performance or plug up the filters.

Over spray or fish eyes


Over spray is just that getting paint on a surface you are not painting (protect adjacent surfaces) "fish eyes" are almost always some type of oil wax or something that was not cleaned off and the paint film moves away from it- always clean all surfaces first before any painting.

Porter cable spray painter PSH1 it says what you can spray with it and I want to spray water base paint can I do it with this painter it is new and I didn't relize it was onl for laciur paint thank you...


Be sure to filter the paint you are trying to use so that you aren't dealing with large lumps of paint. You will need to experiment with hose pressure to get proper spray quality, and set the mixture control for a fairly fine mist as the paint is likely to be more fluid. Fan control is set so that you don't get an unpainted space in the middle of the paint swath. Make sure to wash the gun thoroughly after painting. If you are doing a lot of painting, expect some nozzle wear over time as the water base paint is somewhat gritty. Don't forget to trigger 'off' before the end of each stroke and trigger 'on' after starting the return stroke to keep running at a minimum. Good luck!

New to spray painting and am spraying baked enamel paint


To fix this problem you need to turn up the pressure both at the wall(coming from the air compressor) and at the gun. I would suggest 10 more psi at the wall and 5 at the guns but you can play areound to find whats best for you.
