    The search isn't working for me right now, so what's the best way of doing a rattle can paint job? I've painted it a couple of times flat black, but it doesn't turn out good. The shades vary, then when it rains and the water runs of the seals it leaves noticeable marks behind.

    Is it possible to do a decent gloss paint job? Should I just go to a cheap place or paint it flat black again?

    you need to use like 160 grit sand paper and go over the whole truck then wipe it down with thinner or mineral spirits to clean it then try painting it
