sounds cool. I don't see a problem with rustoleum on a beater truck. It would make it look good from a distance. I wouldn't want it on a show car but rustoleum would be good in this case. I remember my dad painting his crane truck with a brush. It looked much better after the paintjob. It was originally a white cab and yellow front clip

I have considered it, but I need a closed cab, and I know I'm not good enough to build a roof, I know I could cut an existing roof into what I want tho.... really, an X cab small pickup would be an ideal start... and I could just remove the cowl and original everything else, and build back pre war looking stuff..
