    I just sprayed my k30 with Omni 2 stage paint...
    Omni is distributed by PPG...made by the Mexicans...
    so..it's about 1/3 the price of PPG.

    For the color (Black), clear, hardeners and reducers... (in Gal.)
    I spent about $235.00.
    So this product line is pretty affordable.
    PPG would cost $140 for just the color!!!

    Before paint...I preped the the metal with PPG DPLF 90...then sprayed a filler primer k36.

    Then after a day of dry time...I sanded the surface with #220 DA.

    After the truck cab was sanded inside and out...I cleaned with alcohol and thinner (for Bare metal).

    Then blew the dust...for about 2 hours..until no dust could be seen.

    I let the dust settle...and started fresh the next day...by tacking-off the surface.

    Now....it's finally time to spray...
    First...since I DAed the surface with #220...and I have bare metal..
    I aplied 2 coats of reduced DPLF 90 for a black sealer..and let it flash for an hour.

    After sanding the dirt nubs..lightly..it's time for color!!!

    I sprayed 2 coats of color...let that flash for an hour..

    then went on to the clear...and sprayed 3 coats.

    I purchased 2 different hardeners..fast and slow...
    The first couple coats I used 75% fast and 25% slow hardener..
    Then I went to a 25% fast and 75% slow hardener for the last coat..for more flow..to help with overspray.

    Well....here's what it looked like after 2:00AM last sunday morning...
    I turned off the lights around 3:00AM.

    Now...it's time to rub...and assemble.:grin:

    Thanks!!!:cool1:

    No....I stopped wetting the floor years ago.
    I just sweep the foors and blow the vehicle...a day before.

    I'm not sure what gonna happen with this rig...I may do a cummins swap...
    I also found a nice bed for $200. I'm working on that now.

    I have the glass in and paint rubbed on the cab...
