$200 "Restoration" on my DD work truck

Pics tell the story, but basically I DA'ed the factory SS with 320, fixed some rust and dents (Duraglass and filler) I know, I know... , then 2 wet coats Eastwood Epoxy, blocked it out w/ 320, then two more wet coats. Looks 100% better! :happy: Took me 30 hours. Oh, did the wheels in duplicolor wheel silver spraybomb. The before pics are pretty old...it was looking sad after 2 years and no washing

Not bad.. Good job. I love seeing people do these type of things on their own. IMO you should get a single stage paint on it to protect it from fading.
