Heres the truck before..



In the process..



And after the firdt two coats..




I will post up more as i go.

I'm happy it worked out for you, only worry I have is longevity. It may last for ever, or less than a year. Hard to tell.

I'd be kinda scared to do someone elses right now. I want to make sure i get good practise on mine and get the process down first. I really need to replace my bedside in the pic above.

Re: Rustoleum $50 paint job...WOW

I wouldn't do it unless the truck really needs it. I'm on a tight budget and i was just to curious if it would work.
