Was at SEMA too. Probably walked past each other, got pics of the same trucks you took photos of. Your truck is coming out nice , love that red on white , it's gonna be killer.

Re: Rods 57

I was able to get some more paint on it today. I need to do some clean up and fix a few runs but its coming along. Finally got to see what the two colors look like together. Chevy victory red and cooper mini beige.

Re: Rods 57

have not been happy with the paint, a bit to much orange peel. so I sanded it all down with 400 and i'm re-painting it. Wife thinks I am crazy but it would have taken to much to polish it out, if i could have.

Re: Rods 57

Rod, looking good. No harm in fixing it now. If you don't it will forever bug you. I plan to use the same color beige for my interior. The beige is Mini ghost pepper?

Re: Rods 57

Just finished reading the whole thread and that is going to be one awesome looking truck when its done. I love the custom touches that you've done and i'm looking for old valve covers as we speak

This site is great for keeping me motivated. I see trucks progressing and see the end results and that helps keep me going when the end is nowhere to be seen

Ogre, thanks for the nudge. I'm still sanding. Getting it ready to try to paint again. Got the issue solved that caused the problem. Stuck gun and cold air.
