Re: Jim Bob a build thread

Do ya'll actually think it looks better painted with a roller. I'd rather have the worn old paint. It adds character. you could have touched it up and waxed it.

The red roller job shouts back woods redneck.

Re: Jim Bob a build thread

with the peeling cracking and over spray....yup
Can't get any more redder......
up here weathered and worn gets rusty
oh and up here blue and white is leafs colours (truck bought about an hour from Toronto)(it's a hockey thing)
and i'm saving it, being a Sens fan (red, black, and white) Ottawa about 6 hours away
Toronto has 11 Stanley Cups since 1927 - none since 1967
Ottawa has 11 Stanley Cups from 1917 - 1934 - none since BUT we didn't have a team from 1934 to 1992

Re: Jim Bob a build thread

why?
it doesnt look bad besides the orangepeel skin on pic 3 from the top.

You can get rid of the orangepeel by sanding (if the caot is thick enough) and you can bring the shine up by buffing and polishing the paint...

Re: Jim Bob a build thread

nice! I cant waite to get started over here!

I got the advise over here to use a wood flooring roller. These have short hard hairs. This way it does not suck up too much paint and doesnt stick too much, thus causing less orange peal...makes sense?

I'll post some pick when I get some results...

thanks for the update john!
