anyway you can add hardener to it?

rustoleum is really soft and scratches much easier than most paints.
el cheapo automotive paint would be better.

I did one on my s10 this year actually turned out pretty nice for around 70 bucks.Just remember thin your paint way down with mineral spirts,and do the two coats then sand method. Make sure your coats are very thin or you will get orange peel real bad.I would recommend doing a minimum of 8 coats, with you final sand being 1500 to 2000 grit.

I painted this car (and a few others actually) with a roller and brush using this process:http://www.hotrod.com/techarticles/b...b/viewall.html (edit: i used valspar low gloss black tractor enamel on my caprice instead of rustoleum. painted the car for like 35-40 bucks)

I did one of my Broncos with rustoleum years ago. It wasn't pretty but held up as long as the sheetmetal under it. It looked fine @50' & 50mph. I did my Yota P'up with roll on bedliner that was uglier but held up great even when I used the hood as a lawn mower repair work bench. I am thinking about using the bedliner on my 85 4Runner if I don't sell it

As others have said the key is thin coats and lots of them. I want to do my 85 pickup but have been draging my feet because the exo is gonna make it a bitch lol

I am about a hour away in bc and like to wheel, especially with other toyota guys

I just moved here and looking for toyota guys, i live in the kalamazoo area..
I ended up spray painting my 4runner for about 15$ and it looks really good.
The key to rolling a paint job is to due many light coats with wet sanding inbetween, than when you have about 8 to 10 coats let it cure for about one or two month than hit with a good polishing compound and some good high grade car wax, will turn out like a professional paint job if done right with alot of patience...
