    just purchased a dump truck...it is starting to show signs of rusting...and it needs paint...is this something i can do myself with Rustoleum paint or does it require something else?

    Regular spray paint will work but only for a short time. Your bese bet is to buy a sprayer. If you want to save some $ use a roller. Don't laugh I did it and it worked well. It puts a good heavy coat of paint on.

    Use a roller for sure and then some Fluid Film for protection.
