'88 F350 CCLB Paint Project - Photos

Alright so I finally have had the chance to setup and get into the badly needed paint job on my truck. I snagged a 28' x 12' tent frame from work and put a massive tarp over to make my shelter/paint booth. There was a fair amount of body work needed on the cab but I am almost done and will soon be ready for painting. I am doing a spray gun Rustoleum paint job in a custom dark grey that I am mixing (the smoke and charcoal greys aren't available in Canada). I put on new fenders that were test painted with a single coat in the new colour. The truck used to be a school board plow and salt truck. The box was replaced by the PO and is in good shape thankfully.

Here is the truck










The shelter frame


All tarped up!


Step into my office. There is a good 3 feet all around the truck. More than enough space to work.

Rust around the mirror mounts, cut and replace with new metal












Body filler over the patches, which sank perfectly about 1/16" into the panel. This is not finished here, I will add finished pic later.

I used fiberglass on some of the other holes in the doors. It was mainly down on the bottom where it will be covered with rockerguard anyway.






Stay tuned, I will add more pics the project moves along.

Hah, yeah they are the best. Sorry not for sale. In fact the only good reason I didn't just get new doors is because I wanted to keep the mirrors. I will let you know if I see some.

Here is the driver's door ready to go, except for final sanding. The whole truck is sanded to 80 grit, but need to bring it up to 220 before primer.

Did you put down any kind of sealer or anything on the rust before you laid the glass? Dont remember the name but i like this purple stuff we had. Would even have to touch the rust, even BAD rust and that stuff would just desolve it.

No I didn't. It probably would have been best. I just hit it pretty good with a wire wheel. All the glassed parts are on the bottom where it will be covered with rockerguard though.

Alright, so it's taken forever to actually get the painting part of this project. They don't lie when they say prep takes a long time!
Bodywork is all done, finally ready for some painting.

Here is a repair from where I hit the cab on a parking garage. It was dented in pretty badly before I pulled it out.


Final sanding done






Here is the texturized rocker guard painted on. I will cover it with the grey paint later. I don't want 2-tone paint in the end.

Finally got my first coast of primer on. Paint went on pretty good. Only had drips at the very start where I was getting used to using the HVLP setup. I will have plenty of time to sand those out.













It's gonna take me several weeks to get the next coat of primer and probably 3-5 topcoats of colour on there. I can only paint on the weekends since it's dark before and after work at this time of year.

Looks great. I commend you...paint and body work is the one thing I've yet to dive into on any rig.
Side note, looks like you've got the one black wheel on the passenger-rear tire thing going on just like me

Looks great. Did you use an palm sander on the whole body? I'll have to get into a paint project like this on my truck, and I don't have a sander yet. Keep up the good work.
