    i just recently picked up a 240sx, the previous owner painted it idk what color but i would like it white. i have been looking for a "kit" that i can buy and just spray it in my garage. i came across a web site that has what i think im looking for. if anyone knows of anything better let me know.

    If you've never painted before, you'll really regret doing this.

    On top of that kit, you'll spend another $750 in tape, paper, scuff pads, cleaners, guns, regulators, a REAL respirator, more paint, sandpaper, a buffer, and gasoline making trips to/from the paint store.

    You'll also spend 80 hours on the project and end up paying a body shop $2000 to redo your paint job.

    Bottom line...sell the car and buy a white one.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    I had a reply typed out like this, with 'a REAL respirator' as well. :h5:

    Then deleted it because I almost wanted him to try to paint his car. Did you see that painter's mask in the link? Isocyanates, meet lungs. You'll also need a compressor capable of 10SCFM @ 40PSI- if you don't have one already.
