Re: Pics of Gray/Charcoal/Gunmetal trucks??

Here's mine - about $400 in Rustoleum rattle cans for everything, cause I had a huge learning curve putting down a metallic out of a rattle can good! - Black Night Metallic, sick color in the sun, flakes are a silver/gold, we shall see how it holds up to the weather around here now!



Need a bit more drop in the front now that the wheels are on


After some clear and wet sanding...not bad

It goes pretty good...

Re: Pics of Gray/Charcoal/Gunmetal trucks??

Yap, metallic Rustoleum out of a can over the whole truck, of course it took over a month of nights and weekends! About 3 coats of paint and 3 of clear to get it done. It took a lot of trial/error to get it to lay correctly and look good too, that was the biggest hurdle, getting metallic to lay correctly from a can - ha!. I eventually got it down and after a lot of work was ready to wet sand and polish it. I have a couple areas that aren't as shiny as I'd like(need to resand w/1500/2000 and buff), and a couple places where the clear started to fracture from there being too much moisture in the air when I laid it, but it looks better than the Maaco purple color it was when I got it!! What's nice is that any chips or spots that need touchup down the road are easily done - we will see how the clear holds up the UV over the next year or two, but it has been 8 months so far and zero fading issues.

Re: Pics of Gray/Charcoal/Gunmetal trucks??

I really like the new silverado light metallic brown. Saw it on a 54 last weekend. It's just a little more brown tan pewter. If my truck wasn't black I would have a hard time painting my truck any other color.

Re: Pics of Gray/Charcoal/Gunmetal trucks??

I have been wanting gun metal grey myself for a long time, best that I like so far was the color they used on the Craftsman truck, there was a build on it you can check it out on the 67-72 build threads. That's the color I recently told my body man I want my truck painted. John
