I am starting to think about bodywork and painting my trail rig. Please don't flame me because I want to do it on the cheap cheap. I plan to drive this thing hard and not care about damage. Everyone wants a rig that plays hard and still looks nice. I just don't need a showroom finish. I bought my rig (cheap) last spring and the p.o. had the origional blue painted black. Well, the black has been chipping away and looks horrible. I want to go back to the blue color. As far as rust, there isn't much. I will need to replace the tailpan and parts of the bed. Other than that, the fenders will get trimmed so rust will be cut away in favor of tire clearance. I also plan to replace my doors as they are jacked up from a botched speaker install (also p.o.). I am planning on a mig welder for xmas, so that will be covered. Now, for the actual paint, I have no clue on what to do. I want to be able to readily spray over trail rashes (with prep of coarse). I don't want to risk getting mismatch paint from an FNG at the paint store or have a spray can become obsolite. Any ideas on what I should be thinking about? Also related to the paint is what "compound" of paint should I use? Enamel or latex or ? Like I said, I have no clue. Also, will I need to remove all of the old paint or just "smooth it out?
