Rolling Time into a 50-Dollar Paint Job

Illustration for article titled Rolling Time into a 50-Dollar Paint Job

Back when we used to paint houses, movie sets, and the occasional old Plymouth instead of making it big in automotive journalism, a great deal of time was spent sanding, scraping, and sanding again. Preparation is the larger part of a paint job. Armed with a a roller, a can of rustoleum, and a pile of sandpaper, the aforementioned maxim can slowly be turned into a shining white Corvair on the cheap. Mr. Rickwrench himself claims the Yenko striping is good for 5-7 wheel horsepower from established butt dyno tests.
