i did a temporary paintjob with rustoleum spray cans..under $4/can... it came out pretty good....but in the end, after a few months i decided to have a friend with a body shop paint the whole truck. he used one gallon of Omni single stage

Re: 1957 Chevy Truck

57chevyman, Your truck really looks good with its new paint job. You took some good pictures of the front clip and that has helped me make the decision to fill in the body lines between fenders and hood on mine. I was on the fence about that but those pictures pushed me over. You have done a lot work on the truck these past 2 years and it looks great. Thanks for unknowingly helping me with the decision of to fill or not to fill.

Earl
