Being logical again - I "think" you need more light for us to see it!!

It definetly must be very flat and very black as there is not enough reflection to see what it really looks like. But I bet it looks great.

How about some shots of it outside in the light.

actually it was really easy to paint. 1 gal black and 1 quart of reducer, I was getting worried of not having enough, but painted the jams and edges, then whole car with tack coat , then back with full wet coat, had about 2 thimbles full when I got done ! This paint really flows out good ! On one door, the spray nozzle came loose, really made a mess, even got a couple runs in it, the paint still flatten out !(except for the runs ) I'm impressed !

Now that is a lot better.

Looks like it turned out pretty good. I think the JD black is the way to go if you want really cheap and good looking. If you get tired of it you can repaint your car and not be out very much.

like you said, I can still repair , repaint or spot repair areas, and not be out very much money, already scratched one fender, and I have a lot of work left to do. But , at least now I can kinda get an idea of what it will look like !It's better than looking at primer or rust everyday.

It looks great, I wish I had your energy to apply to my truck. My projects seem to progress somewhere between real slow and nothing accomplished.

I try to get at least, a little something done on it each day. Don't always work the way thou..What does help is, my 'shop' is this old horse barn I fixed up, just for working on 'my stuff' , and not useing the house garage. I can just leave everything lay on the floor, lock the door, start right back in tommorrow !

I'm sorry Brian, I answered your post yesterday, but I guess I didn't get it entered....It's called 'Blitz Black' by John Deere. For more info, just read back a couple of posts or look it up in the 'search' feature at the top of the page .

I think that big bracket should be facing down.Try mounting pump on first then find out where bracket goes.

I decided the bracket is correct, and was used for an air pump, which is no longer there, because the exhaust manifolds have the air passages. So, this brings up a new question; can I just block off the fitting on the manifold that the air line was hooked to ?
