Remember old troy told you about spotting that type of mica metallic paint. A good painter might MIGHT, be able to do it , but it will take more time a effort than repainting the whole thing.

Down the road the spots will show up, because there are two different ages of paint, they will not fade the same.

Just some friendly advice, Good Luck.

Troy

Thanks for your expert input, Troy ... I'm only spotting the body color which isn't metallic. The lighter (gold) color on my truck DOES have metalflake in it and THAT I'm totally repainting.

Cool ... right?

So ... you're saying my body color is mica-metallic?

Does it matter that I'm having the color matched at a very reputable place? I'll be taking my gas fill door in to be photographed, and then they're gonna computer-match the color and paint for me. Then, I'm bringing my paint to the guy who's gonna do the touch up.

If that's gonna be a big problem, then I will only focus on a couple of spots that need to be fixed (to avoid rust developing) and wait to repaint the whole truck. I sure don't want to go through all this and be seeing the touch up spots ... I'm the kind of guy that goes insane over little nuances like that!

Thanks again, Troy.

I am far from being an expert, just giving you some advice from my past experiences. I know there are a lot of good painters on this board, you should get there opinions, and come to your own conclusion.

A good paint man can match your paint. And a good painter can spot paint places you can`t find. But time will tell where they are.

Why not run a poll of the experienced painters, and see what they say?

Troy

Man ... this is way more difficult than I thought! I'm beginning to think the best thing to do is to paint the truck a whole new color ... one color ... with some cool silver-leaf pinstriping.

This thread has been a HUGE help for me! Thanks everyone. It's really helping me clarify what I want, and what's best, too.
