    What kind of paint will look the best? I saw some at Pepboys for 5 bucks a can and it is a GM color. Will a couple cans of Krylon work just as good? Also should I use flat, semi-gloss or gloss? Thanks

    What are you talking about painting? The outside....I did my outside rattle can. It's gray, white and black camo in primer paint. I went to Pep Boys dropped $40 bucks on the sandable primer (just case you make a mistake) and my friend and I did ourselves in a day and a half. I need to rescan the pictures of them either late tonight or tomorrow. I will post what I did so you can check it out if you want too? I love the fact if I get a scratch I simply wet it, sand it then when it dries spray over the spot!!

    Here is a pic. ChevyCaGal sent me a pic of her blazer that was too dark, some $hit was spilled on it and was huge. I sortof corrected the problems in 2 mins and here is the final result:

    Thanks for fixing it. I tried earier to scan the good pictures without whatever it is my friend split on that one. I wanted to post it. Don't ya just love computers? My computer doesn't reconize the scanner anymore....argh....!! Maybe if I play with this thing long enough and kick it enough it'll work?!!? But that's the idea for now oh what it looks like......

    Paint? who needs paint....doesn't make you go any faster, doesn't make the truck any lighter, then when you get the door or fender hammered in off road and have to change it with another used one, you have to paint it....hmmmm, everyone seems to like all the colors of the leaves in the fall, so I give them a treat and let them look at my "colorful" truck all year.....painting a "real" off road truck is like making a bed, it's gonna get all messed up again anyway......on a more serious note I guess if it's also a street driven truck, a little paint isn't so bad to keep the authorities from lookin' your way...especially when they are packing a tape measure....just my 2 cents....it's all I can afford with the price of gas (and the t.b.i. 454 under the hood)
