    You can get online. Do a search for it, I know some guys purchased it off a seller on ebay.

    West Marine carries it also and they have alot of retail stores.

    There are some techniques to applying it, so you should definitely read part2 of the moparts thread and do what they recommend.

    Basically the gist, is that you paint it straight from the can or thin it slightly preferably with Interlux '333 Brushing liquid' or mineral spirits. After you do a coat wait 5 - 10 min, then use a foam tipped brush and do light strokes to pop any bubbles and help level the surface.

    I'm sure it's recommended to use a primer with brightside, but I believe a number of guys on moparts are getting good results without one.

    "Marq" on moparts did a lot of research on it and is the main guy that first started using the brightside paint on moparts. Anyway, it's been holding up really well for him, has been durable and he believes it'll last for some time to come. How it compares to a rustoleum roller job for longevity is not really known yet, but it should hold up well.

    Here are some posts of his worth reading regarding durability:

    The guys on the moparts forum are using the marine paint called "Brightside" by Interlux. This is WITHOUT any wetsanding yet. Comes out with a much better initial gloss then rustoleum and requires fewer coats.

    Here are pics from Exit1965 on moparts, I believe this is only 1 or 2 coats and no sanding yet.





    Take a look at Exit1965's posts, and the other posts I mentioned above. I think you should definitely give the Brightside marine paint a try on your future roller projects.

    Paint job on a budget Part 2: Aussie Driver's black miata

    Seems the paint getting the best results is Interlux "Brightside" boat paint. Rolls out with a very high gloss and is not necessary to thin with mineral spirits, though a little thinning will help it level better.

    For Pictures check out these posts by: Aussie Driver, Exit1965, MontanaMan, and Marq

    They are starting to get some pretty impressive results, I may try this on my truck.
    Yes, check out those links there man, thats how to get a real polish to it...

    Now that's impressive.
    That paint will also hold up better than car paint as well.

Tape where the stripes would belong, remove the spoiler and paint it alone. Then re-install everything.

    Yeah, we'll see when the time comes, it'd look a little weird in one of those corners IMO.

    Costs $1.50 to find out, i take paypal. ;)

    I'm painting the car hopefully over Christmas, i'll rattle can the graphics most likely. Not sure how i'm going to do it, including the stock spoiler will be a PITA, i'm not sure if i should remove it and do the whole corner of the trunk and place the spoiler over it ungraphiced Or just do it in the badge area under the spoiler.
