Re: Lola: My Moon Shot 70 SWB K10

Media blasting done on the frame and all body parts. It was a looooong 3 days, especially getting the bed liner out of the bed. Had to both grind and blast. But the mobile blaster said my truck was in better condition than most he's seen and asked me where it spent most of it's life . Solid people to work with at Dustless Mobile Blasting.

Now to the long, slow process of a rebuild. Frame and axles got their first coat of primer.

Re: Lola: My Moon Shot 70 SWB K10

Topcoat went on the frame today. Wasn't sure I was going to like gloss black but it ended up looking great! I had to thin the topcoat because it thickened pretty quickly during the work.

Here are a few before and after pics. What does everyone think?

Re: Lola: My Moon Shot 70 SWB K10

Looks great! I chose a satin finish and after its covered in dust and a little time goes by, I don't even think about the finish on the underside if the truck. Of course if I were building a trailer queen it would be different. I figure as long as everything is protected from the elements, paint it the way you like it.
Do you mind sharing the cost for Dustless Blasting to come out and do what they did?
