Ya'll - I have paint!  Doors are done.  Goal is to have the cab done by the end of this weekend.  I'm one happy girl - I think the truck is, too!  The rest of the truck will be this color with a white

Popped the seat frames and original seats in tonight so I could sit in my truck for the first time on something other than a milk crate!  Don't mind me...I'll be here making "vroom-vroom" noises and g

Getting closer and closer!  The white paint has a few places that need some attention.  I think we got an incorrect P sheet and the mix ended up a little thin, so I have a couple of runs, but nothing that can't be leveled out and buffed back. I'm attacking the nose piece next!

On another note: do you have a bed liner or undercoat type paint that you love? Matte black, textured.  I'm going to paint the rocker under the door around the back - stepping up just to the bottom of the three "panels".  The rockers had to be completely reconstructed and there are visible weldments. The lower portion of the back of the cab had been repaired multiple times (for function only).  Since we're putting a custom bed on her, it made sense to not worry about a pristine repair back there, and I think and undercoat paint will be perfect.

Thank you!  I'm planning a cool white detail on the hood that I think will really pull it all together!

Noticed that you haven’t posted in over a week Skippy. Hope all is well with you and the family and that you’ve just been too busy with the project to post.

Looking  good

 

So the pin striping on the Freightliner, was it painted or stuck on vinyl ? 

Lot of these jokers on here wouldn't mind seeing that either, so dont be shy to share pictures of the Freightliner as well

Paul,

We masked it off three times for paint with some pretty complex designs and I detailed it out with vinyl.  I will share pictures when it's done! 🤩
