I want to Paint the Bronco, So whats the plain Alan?

Here is my thought, Alan then tell what you think.

For now I would just like it one color, So Im thinking Nason single stage factory pack in a blue close to what the bronco is now! just scuff and paint! Then as we can fix holes and dents just paint back with the same factor pack color!

Once all the body work is done we can finish sand an paint back to the factory color blue (with out white and trim)
I don't want a show truck paint job, but would like it to look good!

Spend the money and do the body work once and be done with it. The more paint you put on it, the more you have to take off. Nason is not very good paint. As a matter of fact, ...it sucks. I like shooting PPG and they have a cheaper line called Omni. It's still more than Nason, but it won't fall off the truck in six months either. Just put it in primer black if you want to work on it and drive it in one color. Then you can work on it and touch it up as you would like.

Well, painting it two or three times isn't the answer either. We'll work something out. I think a good coat of primer is the answer you're looking for. Even Nason paint isn't as cheap as a good primer. (operative word here is GOOD)

Another thing, I'd either get it done before it gets cold out, or wait until spring. You don't need any "work in progress" on salty winter roads. If you take all the chrome off, I think I could have it in color in a week. The truck really isn't that bad. Whenever you're ready, let me know. ...but let me get this '57 out of my hair first. I want to give it back to the owner by the swap meet so I can buy some parts.

When you say in one color in a week, what all you talking about doing?

what about just sealing it with a black sealer! and staring body work in spring?

...and yes, Black sealer/primer is fine. That way you (I) can do the bodywork whenever.

Nah, you can do it. Just make sure to prep the surface first. (sand and clean)

Ches, do you still work at Slo Reilly? If so, I'd suggest using the Nason FulPoxy to give it corrosion protection if you've any bare metal. If you let Alan get the materials, the epoxy of his choice would be as good or better. I think you can tint most epoxy primer as well. I know I've tinted the Nason stuff before with no ill effects. The other option is check out Southern Polyurethanes, their epoxy primer and high solids clearcoat are the best I've used and they even have a black epoxy primer. Google search Southern Polyurethane and you'll get their website.
