save for the front fenders, for a price like that, i'd drive the hell out of it.
Heck yeah, that has me thinking I might make a thread of my m1008 build pretty soon. I love cheap trucks that look and work well.
Thats basically the story of my Power Wagon there... blasted that out in the chicken coop, right over the smashed up qrters.... white Imron it was...
Man Im really not sure why exactly you are here on this GM bulliten board, but I have seen some quality postage from you. Hope you stick around
Nice work! I've painted an '81 mustang for cheap years ago. Found a gallon of John Deere Yellow tractor paint and a Wagner Power Sprayer in the basement ... Painted the car at night, by dusk to dawn light, and was half drunk at the time.
Didn't turn out too shabby. Money outlay was a case of beer! And it wasn't my car!!!
thats crazy, for a second I thought you had my old ford. I used to have a 95 f-150 but it was an extended cab. The color was exactly like that, green cab and blueish primer bed black rims (because tehy had so much brake dust on there from never cleaning them. lol) But thats all me like.
I can't think of a better way to do it. Spray booths are overrated!
Damn, another member of the redneck paint club. I had to use a canopy because it was pouring rain. I did it through the deluge of rain the other month that flooded the Northeast. It's also good old TSC tractor paint.
Wayne, you are higher tech than me. I dig it.
My simple advice when painting a cheap vehicle: Clear coat it. Even if your "basecoat" (the color) sucks, and is not shiny, the clear will make it shiny. Runs in the clear coat are not as easy to see as runs in the color coat either.
For the record: You are not supposed to paint clear over acrylic enamel...at least not right away. I do...works for my purposes.
