Finally painting.

Well everyone after a 2 year struggle to get my f150 truck back on the road she's legal now (re-titled) and now I'm putting paint back on her. I'm not going with the traditional high gloss etc. Instead I'm painting the whole truck using the Hippo Bed Liner. I started yesterday shooting the back panels and tailgate. I'm using a Schulz style gun at 50 psi. Kinda reminds me of my days painting texture on interior house jobs. But anyway here's a few pics after the second coat. I prepped all the parts by using 50 grit sandpaper and after the first coat let it sit over night then hit it lightly again with 50 and then shot the final coat. The tech guy for the Hippo product has been great in assisting me through any questions(actually gave cell # so I can call any time of day to ask questions). So here are some pics:
