The white is 64 Ford Wimbelton White.
The silver is 2007 ford silver.

I will have black fenders, period at the time on a lot of trucks.

The cab was actually done by the alleged painter. I have some other small stuff that was also done.

Tried to work today

Went out before to do some last minute media blasting before priming body of truck,, Was still humid so I retreated to the house. I am getting real close to prime time.. I also still have various small parts to paint as well. I am getting use to the paint guns and being a chemist with the paints. I'll go see if I can take a few shots of the quazi paint booth I built.

Hard to see in pics, but I have two air intake filters, set high. I have an exhaust plenum with a low entry and a high discharge with a fan out the window. The lights I picked up at Habitat for $ 10 a piece. It is 4 mill plastic on a Temp wall near my work bench. Still a little tight but when I pull the truck out, There is ok room for the small parts etc. I still need more light down low. I had some trouble doing the second coat of stuff because I could not clearly see where I was spraying. I have additional light in my work trailer, but I am afraid of them breaking if positioned low. Thinking of putting some 4' or 8' florescent in protective cages near the floor that I can move around.

I have light panels to cover the door track when it is closed and the area right next to the door itself. Worked well when I did the silver parts.

I just saw the top of your first picture and I thought you were going to paint your fire truck the color of those 2 foam tubes: green and blue/lavendar! LOL...

I have no idea why it took me so long to find this thread! Jim, you're doing a hell of a job restoring a hell of a truck. I can't WAIT to see this old beast when it's finally done and ready for you to enjoy!

That's quite an elaborate paint booth you created! I painted a car in the garage once and it took months to get the overspray and dust out of everything. Are you using a mask with dedicated air supply?

The cab looks great!

Thanks Ross.

I am not using dedicated air, but I am using a full face mask with chemical filters. Works very well. The exhaust fan is working well also, but with this weather, the shop itself gets hot. Last week end, I emptied the shop floor and swept up and hosed down. It helps keep the dust and stuff down. I have half the truck in prime and high build prime. Mayby the other half next week,. We'll see
