Default Pics

alrighty PICTURES!!
here it is just like a bought it with this ugly falt bed and rattle canned flat black. They even spray painted the entire engine bay.


This is what it looked like after I put a regular bed on and then sanded it so I could paint it.


And this is what it looks like now. I only had time to put one coat on when I painted it so there are a lot of spots that I missed and stuff so hopefully next weekend I can put another coat on but this is what she looks like. Im pretty happy with it.


Looks like a totally different truck lol

It wasnt rattle can (probably should have explained that haha) I actually went down to harbour freight and bought a $25 HVLP spray gun. Honestly I think it is way easier then rattling the whole thing, plus it turned out better IMO.

Looks good. Congrats.

Personally I'd have went with a color that's better at hiding imperfections, but it's much improved.
