For some reason this pic only wants to come up as a link
sweet looking rig man
Oh and I have noticed that on a few threads lately, don't know why it has been doing that
think if the file is saved as a paint file itll do that...at least for me, if i save it as a jpeg it doesnt do it
Yeah that is probably what it is. But paint will save as a .jpg so I always do that.
These pics are all straight from my camera and default are jpg's
Hmm I dunno
Doesn't really matter, something for them to test.
wanna come paint mine? Ive done 2 like that and I always lose my patients so it looks like crap. good job man.
I love that truck!--the 60-66 trucks had the second best body style--only the 55-57's look better in my opinion...I'm partial to blue too,I had a lot of blue vehicles in past years..you did a good job painting it!...
looks good man, come paint mine
Looks great. What type of paint did you use?
Believe it or not, I just used Rustoleum. Bought a quart of the smoke gray and a gallon of the Royal Blue.
Same stuff that Lowe's sells? Did you have to cut it, or did you spray it straight out of the can?
Prolly the same stuff. I got mine at a local Ace Hardware. I cut it with about 10%-15% mineral spirits.
Funny you should post that. I was just re-reading some of a post over on a mopar site about that very topic. Once my mechanical stuff is done, I'm going to paint mine navy & grey probably using that method.
I remember someone posted this up a while back and it caused a debate on the merits of a real paint job vs rattle can or roller jobs. Hopefully that won't happen again with this thread.
I will agree that its not the best paint in the world to use on a classic like this. But since the body isn't perfectly straight, I went the cheap route for now until I can afford to do a frame off restoration on it. Then she'll get the good stuff by a professional
I have looked at that paint more than once and wondered. Looks good on your truck.
