Painting a truck is always a bigger mission than you expect, even after you have done it a few times :? :?

We completed all of the panel repairs last weekend, so all we had to do was block the doors, quick scuff with 400 grit paper, mask and paint. Yup, easy as.

Started at 4pm friday arvo to block the doors, and any other tidy up jobs.

Today (saturday) we were into it at 8am, still with one door to block, and a whole lot of sanding to get through. We finished up at about 6.30pm. MISSION :shock: :shock:

Alex now out of his cast and limping round after 3 weeks out of action wanted to help out. Naturally 8) 8)
Image

Into the booth for a quick number 2 prime and final check and sand for a couple of problem areas
Image
Image
Image

Next up a dark number 7 primer coat to help the base cover better.
Image
Image
Image

The base coat and a look at the new colour
Image
Image
Image

A couple of coats of scratch resistant clear, and shes ready for a bake. Super bling!!!!
Image
Image
Image


And then we spotted the spider family making an escape :lol:
Image
Image
Seems the clear was the final straw and it was time to get the hell out before the bake cycle :lol: :lol: :lol:

Gonna be a shame to take this truck out on its first trip to our camp site in Nat Park, scratches are impossible to avoid :cry: :cry: :cry:

would it be worth putting on some clear sticky vinyl stuff ( car wrap) to protect mainly the panels that are likely to get scratched the most, awesome job man looks sweet

I don't think I have ever worked this hard on anything. Ever.

But it's done.

Finished.

In a month :D :D

I suspect I must have eaten and slept, and maybe somehow still dragged myself to work each day. I think :lol: :lol:

But here she is, back to where we were a month ago :D

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

The rear end all wired up, fridge, bed etc fitted
Image
Image
Image

Salisbury gone, Rover axle in
Image

Steering guards beaten back straight and fitted
Image

Bling chassis
Image

Heat exchanger fitted
Image

Fuel tank in
Image

I still need to get a couple of rims up to The Steel Surgeon in Manukau to get modified so I have my off road wheels back, but other than that and what ever mechanical things pop up, it's good to go :D :D
