I can recall my brother Mike saying how someone here on the forum had painted his car using house paint and a foam roller brush. Now I never have seen any of the pictures. . . but supposedly it turned out better than anyone expected. Just out of curiosity, does anyone else remember this?

It was a Fiero, not on this forum but it was discussed here. If you do an internet search for "fiero paint foam roller" you will get a bunch of articles.
