home grown paint jobs

Never knew this post would get so much action. So far I've primered my truck, sprayed bedliner on the bottom and even painted the frame. All has been done early in the morning on the QT. I'm moving to a new house so I don't know how the new neighbors will be. The plan was to finish the truck this summer and then buy the house in the fall, but it was too good of a deal to pass up. The truck will have to wait, but hopefully the primer and block sanding will all be done by early fall. I will have a pro spray it if I can afford it after the house purchase.

Growing up in S. Cal my dad was a Chrysler mechanic who started work in a body shop when he was 14. Boy he could do anything. I remember him painting a 65 GTO in the back yard, metallic blue with black stripes. This thing was cherry. Cragers, engine chromed out etc.. I learned to drive in it, but he sold it a month before I was 16. He said he didn't want me to wrap it around a tree. He also painted our boat, flat bottom lavey craft with a hilborn injected 440. We also had dune buggies etc. Everything we had was a result of his hands.

I may have *****ed a little when I didn't want to help him in the garage but now when I'm turning wrenches in my garage I do feel close to him. I'm probably like most guys in this hobby, doing it because we grew up with an old man or friend wrenching.

I sure wished I had an old bodyman living next door. Maybe at the new house.

Keeping it a hobby is key..

Listen ,you can run water over your hand and make it worse, or -- look at me -- or you can use vinegar to neutralize the burn.

Please let me have some, please.

But first you have to give up. First, you have to know, with no fear, know that someday you are going to die. Until you know that, you are useless.

You don't know how this feels!

It's only after we lost everything that we are free to do anything.
