    so its not really a thread, but it is a webpage with a minimal amount of text, a large number of useless images, and a great way to kill time

    Hey, what kind of paint/paint process did you use on this? I understand it probably isn't of show quality, but it looks shinny and good enough to warrant some praise. Any prep work or primer?

    Good looking truck....

    Paint is rattle can... it doesn't look that good in person, but its not horrific either. looked pretty good when it was fresh.

    painting in phoenix makes anyone look like a pro painter using expensive paint, it just dries so fast it can't run, technique really isn't important, just lay it on.

    Did you use any clear coat or more than one layer? Shows well in the pictures...
