Turned out much better than the last one,started at the top spraying back and forth pointing down a little only dropping a little after 2 passes.So each spot got sprayed several times as I worked down.Went much slower to the point off it almost wanting to run.

Only 1 side left.:chewie:

Boy the metallics really pile up if you spray to close. You get this blotch of purple sparkle and you think you just messed it up. As it dries the sparkle goes away and the grey colour come through matching pretty good.

2 coats. This is water base stuff so drys pretty quick with air flow so I have my furnace running blowing dog hair around lol. DCEBCC3C-437D-4A7D-B922-5480B212EBDE.jpeg

Bit of a snow storm today and for the next two weeks also cold so decided to just put it back together so I can drive it.

Plan is to maybe turn this into a work truck. I’m a kitchen guy so need to fit table saw mitre saw etc. probably make a plywood box to cover the interior. Will see.

At least I can drive it now. Will work on the cut and buff next weekend. Truck needs to go outside again. 75C2DF7A-7C0C-4BE2-973F-DB1618AB313B.jpeg
