I had several runs to take care of when I did my interior, I think painting it out side helped, Inside the garage it was hard to get enough light in the cab to see what I was doing, and I had problems getting enough fresh air in there to clear out the overspray, with the clear coat you can easily fix any imperfection. Wish my neighbors wouldn't mind

Yeah, its just in the clear. Guess I feel asleep while clearing the lower right corner. Will do all blue for know and maybe white inserts down the road.

I like your out-door paint booth, kinda like mine lol. the blue is growing on me also. like my color, everybody will know who it is for sure coming down the road.

you're getting a bunch done quickly, or is it i'm just slowing down--great job also.

Re: 1963 C-10 in NC

Thanks for the kind words. Heater knobs are original although I did upgrade to stamped steel levers 3 years ago. I converted from deluxe to standard heater but just leave the extra 2 knobs in. My knobs dont have any clumips in them, but the lever ends are gnurled to hold them in place.
The more I spray the blue...the more I like it. As for my spray booth, its making due the best I can for now. So far the results are good.

Got the driver side lower door stripped down as I could tell there was some bondo. Although rust free, someone rubbed somthing at some point. The mudded the whole lower door for a 1.5" scrape. So down to metal and a more suitable sozw coat down. The dark red is factory primer.

The paint is looking great. I wish I had gotten over this weekend. I did make it up to VA and brought back a really nice 62 bumper.

Re: 1963 C-10 in NC

Thanks for the compliments guys. Got driver side door work done. Just need some more scuff pads for the grinder. Will need a little glaze over the scrape repair...but its ready. Rocker & cab corner preppped, sp on to interior door tomorrow, which wont take much and the pass door.

90* still outside and just too damn hot since ive been at it 6 days a week lately. So moved inside and completed cluster clean up. Its ready to reinstall.
