about 2 weeks ago my wife was driving home on the highway. when someone weaving through traffic doing 100 + didn't realize they couldn't make it into the other lane in time and smashed into her. they slid around and got control of their car and sped off going even faster..

here's the damage.

so we got our insurance to do their thing, i got 2400 to fix it.
being that i work in a bodyshop i opted to do it myself and instead of pocket half the money i would go ahead and redo the whole truck.. here's the pics..

Thanks guys. It could use a little buffing but other than that it came out great. We used this new to us basf glamour clear. It looks great but I think the lack of flow in the booth caused the overspray to settle on it giving it some texture. I'm not looking forward to wet sanding and buffing this big ass truck lol

yeah same color code, the lighting in the shop is different than sunlight. so it makes it appear darker, it is just a tad darker from the old paint starting to fade. red does fade pretty easily.
