Re: Jans 53

Nice work on the truck and also on the hammers and dies. Too bad your neighbor didn't just walk over and see what you are doing. He might have learned something instead of making himself look silly and childish.

Re: Jans 53

Wow that's real nice. Did you have to fill in all the holes or just primer and paint?

Cool Re: Jans 53

Thanks everyone,
Dan color is undecided but I was really wanting to use a satin paint. I really didn't want anything high gloss but I have been reading up on the maintenance of satin and I seems like a real pain in the a$$!
If I do the satin I like the color of the Boyd Coddington shop truck

Re: Jans 53

Hi NCGal,

Ha, I couldn't love your choice more. My JUST sprayed '55.2 is almost identical to what your pic looks like except I used a base coat/clear coat on mine. But my truck before the current build had a sort of shop truck vibe and I used satin rattlecan paint on it. Yeah, I know - cheap. But it's what I could do then. Really liking your build!

Re: Jans 53

It's 2012 Honda Milano Red.

I saw a car at a show last summer that was Honda San Marino Red and thought that was the color I wanted for certain. But when I saw the two colors side by side the San Marino was too dark. Here's a picture of the car I saw. The picture doesn't look anything like it really looks because the flash went off. It looked great at the show but I'm REALLY happy with the Milano Red I chose.

Loving this SPI epoxy, crazy how this stuff lays down the reflection makes it look like paint.
