    I spent over two weeks preparing DSCF2042.JPG DSCF2044.JPG DSCF2046.JPG the truck for paint. Although this was hard, I think the body shop will have a better body to work with and I will have a better paint job

    Ive just recently learned the value of paint prep. My newly acquired s10 was in primer and i painted it rattle can in satin black, it looks like hell because i didnt sand before painting.

    You'll have your chance at payback in about a year.

    That guy on YouTube, Moore Motorsports has Rust-Oleum spray can paint jobs that look good, even years, like 3 to 5 later. But he does prep work just the same as if he were going to paint normally. You should watch a few of his videos , really amazing what he can do with Rust-Oleum spray cans
