Figured that I never posted pics after I painted my '81 Chevy. Did it myself in the garage with the tried and true, $50 Rustoleum paint job. Some may laugh,. some may cringe,.. but if I ever own another beater and it needs a paint job, I would do this again in a heartbeat. Enjoy and feel free to ask any questions.
When I first picked it up:
Some time later with some new wheels and Meguiars Medium Cut Cleaner:
And no short jokes. That's Sebastian, my four year old.
I think it looks fine. After all, it's a 30 year old beater truck, why spend a lot of money on it.
Jesus created the internet and puppies and dandelions and kittens and sunny days and lollipops and impalas and turbochargers and pizza and beer and wings and boobies and blowjobs and pizza and pizza and pizza and beer and snow days and football and cheerleaders and drag radials and nascar and everything else that's awesome.
It's hard to find retards of this quality in such masses. It's truly amazing.
I thinned the paint 50%. Applied two coats,.. then wet sanded. Ended up doing about eight or nine coats.
nice pretty shiney too. did u buff it or use any clear coat spray or anything?
That is straight paint job. No buffing yet. But I plan to after I find the right pin stripe I'm looking for.
Nice truck too, we used to have one for a beater on the farm, except it wasn't anywhere near the condition of yours
Yeah. Now that it looks respectable, I'm debating putting more money into it. 2 / 4 drop, 290 hp GM crate motor, and some other goodies. After the bed side started to rot, it was either fix it, or sell the truck while it was still worth something. So since I'm saving for a new truck, I figured I would try my hand with some fiberglass and bodo. Not fun, but I'm pleased with the results.
