Fresh paint on bumper..

Took the bumpers off of my 59 Apache, sanded them down, Primed and just sprayed the first one (aerosol can). Tell me what you think, then I'll let you know the "type" of paint. There are some imperfection's in the bumper, but this will not be a show ride. Plans are to flat black w/Gloss white top. Not sure on the wheels yet.

Looks really good.
It's a shame you put that much work into something using a spray can.
I guess it's better than nothing, but not by much.
No matter how nice you get it to look, the durability is just not there
with a spray can and when it needs repainting, it'll need to be stripped.
It does look good for now though

I agree with the durability. It's actually Epoxy Appliance Paint. A Buddy of mine re does vintage campers, and he repainted a fridge, and recommended it. The truck is not going to be a show stopper. That paint was a quick fix to some chipped that was already there. This weekend I'm going to start to weld up the emblem holes and get to sanding the body.


I'll post pics of the progress

Epoxy?
Was that one of the new "2 compartment" type spray cans?
Where the hardener is kept seperate until useing it.
If not, it definetly wasn't epoxy coming from a spray can.

Clark.... That stuff is not in one of those 2 compartment cans. It is simply spray paint. I have never been able to figure out their use of the Nale "Epoxy" on one-part stuff like that.

Got the sanding done, and put the first coat of primer on her. Going back now with 320 to get it a little smoother. Again, Flat Black is my color choice for now. Going to "re spray" the bumpers w/automotive paint and the roof will match. Will definatelly post pics when completed.

When I want to do a quick paint job without the necessity of a compressor, I just get a straw and suck some paint into my mouth, position my face over my truck, and get a friend to punch me in the stomach. Your results may vary.

Not sure how to take that comment. But to each his own.
