How many coats have you done? I'd do 2 or 3 -- but then, I have no knowledge or experience in this department (yet).

Man, I'm doing new stuff on my beloved truck every week!

I cut into the body (my first time ever) and put new backup lights on it -- I bought a pair of 1953 Chevy pickup parking lights. I also put chrome exhaust tips on -- made a huge difference in the look of the back! And I finally got the radio I wanted -- 1955 Chevy AM/FM Cassette stereo ... then I made a faceplate for it (to cover up the mess and holes in the dash, made by the PO) and with a little water, and some clamps, I matched the curve of the dash with it!

LOL! I've never had so much fun, bro'!

Next month I'm having ALL the dings and scratches fixed up. I'll be removing my gas fill door to get a computer match on the paint color (hope that goes well) ... and then I'm having the front grill, running boards, and Chevy logo on the tailgate painted a new color -- the same color as the truck, only much darker and with some metal-flake or pearl.

Thanks for asking, man -- I COULD go on ... and on ... but I'll spare ya's.

PS -- When I get the computer color-match, I guess I could give you info about the "real" color.

Looks good, I'd leave it out to. If you have it coated well enough you may not want to paint it again.After it's cured overnight make the call, use your besrt judgement. I noticed you are shooting the empty block, make sure to wipe (or scrape with a single edged razor blade if neccesary) any areas that may have gotten paint on/in it that shouldn't have.

Put 3 coats on, man. 3 is always a good number.


It's a 3-stage paint job on my truck, I think ... nice clear-coat - definitely a classy job. Man, I really had some "beginner's luck" when I bought this truck.

No AIM ... I think "AOL is the Devil!" LOL!! No Yahoo Messenger either ... email works for me -- I check my email a zillion times a day : alan@alanhorvath.com
