    I used 11 cans of grabber green engine enamel, and still have one very small area on the back of the roof that hasn't been painted. I also used most of 1 can of Rustoleum Black Appliance paint.

    Looks like a giant can of Tang or Ajax :haha:

    That said, it takes balls to drive a vehicle like that. Almost as much (many?) balls as it takes to drive a Smurf-blue-camo truck :D

    More usefully, congrats, and hope the appliance epoxy turns out for ya. I just remembered I did a truck box in the white, and that stuff is rock solid, I tell ya, so your bumpers should do well. And you could do a black racing stripe and get away with it, like those Dodge muscle cars of the 60's.

    Buddy of mine just sold a K-5 that was that same color. Used to call it Kermit, Marvin the Martion, Miss Piggy. Need something to break up the paint, like some Cuda stripes or something, something to make all the Slopar guys mad.....

    I'm liking it James, nice job. That is SOOOO much better than it was. I need to get off my ass and do the DD now, you're starting to inspire me. Bumpers and mirrors look nice, how'd you like that paint? Once you get the overspray and newspaper off it, it'll look pretty sharp.
