Anyone ever painted a car with something OTHER than "actual" car paint?
Looking at prices for gallon cans of primer, reducer, then paint, it's gotta
be well over $200 after tax.
I just want to sand car down, fix some rust (bondo) and get 1 year...maybe
2, out of a very low end paint job, but as I'm on a super low budget, I just
really want the car to be all one color.  I have a compressor and spray gun.
It's a variety of colors now, with patches here and there, etc.

Rustoleum? House paint? Something else?

I have to keep in the back of my mind this is JUST a commuter car, point A
to B, el-cheapo, 86 Golf with 407K on the clock.  Just want it to be all one
