    For anyone thinking of spraying a truck with cans, buy the $5 plastic tool that holds the can and gives you a trigger grip. Your finger tips will thank you.

    I really like the green one and the shiny metallic gray one, i am wanting to hold onto the blazer i was trying to sell to stick a new tranny and a cheap paintjob on it to sell it later on. i forgot to add if you could also let me know what you used to paint it......gun, can, roller...whatever. also what kind of paint you used, spray, auto, tractor, marine, etc
    thanks

    I used automotive paint and sprayed it on. I used primer first then blocked sanded it all and then shot 3 coats of the grey on it. I didn't sand it between coats but if you want a real nice paint then i would.

    Nice work fellas keep the pics comin! I had a 77 Maverick once. It was my first Vehicle, blue had a California Special 250 in it and a busted out rear quarter window. I hate Fords but I sure loved that thing. It was a wheelin PIG ! Anywho point is when I got it it was blue and rust 16 cans of Gloss Black and half can of gold for the trim and it was the bomb.
