    Hi Ted. I came across some of your old posts about how you sprayed your green ford with rattle can primer, paint and clear. I am thinking about doing this with my 66 F100 as like you can't stomach the thought of paying a few grand for a paint job that's I could scratch up going hunting or taking the truck to do about anything.

    It sounds like from some of your later posts tht you moved on of to rolling and then to one of her the turbine guns. Do you still think the rattle cans were a bad idea? How is the paint holding up now? I see the cost benefit of using the gun but one thing i like about the rattle cans is that I can do one panel at a time without cleaning the gun etc.

    I appreciate any tips! Oh and what brand of primer, pint and clear did you use in the cans?

    Thanks!

    Ted,

    Thanks. I have a spray gun and bought some Rustoleum Professional paint. At Menards they can tint it to any color. I will shoot the front of my bed and see how it looks. One thing, with a 4x4 I know I am going to scratch it when I play with my truck in the woods. So this will give me and easy way to touch things up.

    I read on one of the forums that you used Rustoleum. Was that for the body or the frame. I am working at 61 4x4, and was going to go the Rustoleum route for my body.

    Thanks,

    Bud
