I know of at least 4... But the ONLY reason I was even considering it was because the truck is just a beater anyway..

and since nobody likes to talk about Kirker when you talk about cheap paint, what about Transtar. Isn't Transtar a brand of clear used in many body shops??

1/2 pint of hardner is $15.95.. so doing a quart with the original color would be just a bit cheaper...

What's wrong with Kirker? It's exactly what I would recommend for a cheapo job. I bought several different colors of their Ultra-Glo and I'm going to do some test shots in a week or two, and then shoot a butt ugly Isuzu Trooper with it.

And there's your color too.

If you just paint a couple of panels, it will never match.

Well, I keep getting low ball offers on the truck, so it looks like I'll probably end up keepinng it....

but if I do, I think I'm going to do some custom work to the cab and front fenders, and turn it into a model A looking truck... cut the front a and b pillars in the center at an angle, chop the rear of the cab a few inches ( 4 or so ), then lengthen the roof so the a and b posts would be completly vertical. fill in the rear window, and use a mail slot template, then reconstruct the cowl to resemble that of a 30's Cowl.. Model A grille and grillshelle, and a radiator that will fit... flatbed or I'll make a bed that looks right..... then I'll paint it a nice color

Valspar paint from Tractor Supply, Its ss auto paint that can be used with or without a hardener. Aound $27 a gallon. If you do try for the old style look you can use a dodge ram 94-02? for the cowl top.
