Paint prodject update

Just a little update, I can finally see the lite at the end of the spray gun. As you can see Ive got the cab done except for the rear glass and the drivers side glass, wich is waiting on two more clips for the anti rattle felt they should be here tomorrow. I decided to go with smoked side and vent glass to match the dark smoked rear glass I have, and replace all rubbers ect. Today I shot three coats of HB over the epoxy on the bed sides and tailgate, (the front panel,and rear fenders are done waiting for reinstall) tomorrow I will shoot topcoat on bed and tailgate. Then its just a matter of putting the bed on, fenders on, tailgate and front panel on, color sand and buff the bed, reinstall wood bed floor and tighten loos nuts. Feels good, its coming out better than I thought it would. Next comes interior,exaust and so forth. My Wife even said Ill need to find another progect truck (I was shocked, Ill be tinkering with thi one for years) Well thats this update, Ill take a pic when im done with the bed.

Looks good Jimmy! The wife's seal of approval says it all. When you get ready for the next project come on down to San Diego, I have a few out in the barn that may be of interest.
