IMO, that rare low mileage truck should never have been repainted. Unfortunately, a new shine seems to have been more important than matching the original turquiose paint color formula.

Jonzcustom shop, can you tell me how you got that dropped? I have a 65 C20 that I want to have the same look. Thanks!

True, its not the majority out there, but there is a following. Never think there is no value in a truck with 8 lugs and 8 ft bed and sits at stock height. Would have liked to see a correct interior with correct wheels, but it hard to get everything you want. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevrolet-Ot...US_Cars_Trucks

Single stage, 3 part paint. (paint, catalyst, and reducer) its an industrial tractor, truck, and implement paint brand name "Majic". perfect for a Daily driver/work truck. Tractor supply carries it, and its some tough stuff to. the color i mixed by hand until it was close to the look i was going for, wanted it to look factory-ish. hope that helped.

unless that question wasn't directed to me.... oh well

One gallon for the green, and there was plenty of leftover, i had to mix the green w/ the white to get the color i liked. mind that they have to be the same brand of paint to mix. the white took little less than a quart . i was able to put down two coats of both colors w/ left over.hope it helps. so far this paint has held up awesome been using the truck allot to.

go for it, iv always been function over fashion, but SOMETIMES its nice to make stuff pretty now n again. and the tractor paint if nice looking AND tough. what more could one ask for. good luck if you choose to go this route.
little hint: a little more catalyst made for a slightly higher shine.

Huh? I think that's an optical illusion--looks normal to me (a few inches higher in the back).

Re: Where's the 3/4 ton love?

I'll have to get some pics from the side of my truck. Mine seems to have that hotrod lowered front end but I'll get them when I get back from my underway period.

Yeah, they all have that. If they weren't higher in the rear you'd end up with the bumper-dragging-the-ground look when loaded.

BTW, more pictures of this truck halfway down page 30 of the pictures sticky/thread. http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...449613&page=30
