Paint looks great...Is that single stage or BC/CC? I'm going to be painting mine in a few weeks, been looking for ideas and I really like the way that came out. Could you give me the low down on products and method?

Lol first thing is you have to understand I'm a little brave when it comes to painting. I had some leftover paint I used. I had some black single stage and some silver from my daughter old Neon. The silver was base coat but not dark enough for me so I added some black to it until I was happy with the color. I sprayed 3 coats of the silver base then let it dry about 1/2 hour and masked it off. Next I sprayed the single stage black paint, then I pulled the paper off the silver and cleared it all. BTW I didn't paint the black on the cab. You can get the same result but I recommend using the bc/cc because the bc dries fast and you can mask it.

Excellent. Thanks for the info. So now more questions...sorry, this will be my first painting experience so I have a lot of questions.

What size compressor did you use...what type HVLP gun...tip size...pressure settings etc?
Is your compressor "plumbed" to cool and fliter the air? I've read about this and wonder if that matters a great deal for painting my beater truck
Did you do it outdoors, in a garage, in a paint booth
What paint/CC brand did you use.

I'm a pain...sorry. But it would really help me out to know. Thanks!

My compressor was a 6.5 hp oiless upright when I got it but the compressor locked up so now I have a different compressor on the old tank, I think its close in size though because its about the same output, its the oil type now. I don't have a filter on it but it wouldn't hurt. I use an old binks siphon gun.

I paint in my garage but hang plastic on the ceiling and sides. I use an old furnace blower for an exhaust fan.

I use Nason brand paints, its a good compromise between price and quality.
