1995 Chevy Suburban

Post by jtwh20 on January 7th 2009, 8:02 pm

Just started on my Suburban...It has the factory installed self peeling paint, so I decided to paint it myself using the Roll On method...

I needed a hood as mine has 2 bends in it from when the previous owner tried to open it to far, so I went to the pick a part, grabbed one, and started rolling on

Using Rustoleum Gloss White (but I may decide to change the color all together)

last weekend i sprayed the truck with krylon camo green came out worse than i wouldve liked, and the thing aboyt flat paint is it holds water and dirt...

So I had Ace match me up some Rust Stop paint (amazing match job by the way - in the can it looks gray, but once on it turns green...

Here is the first coat this AM - THIS TRUCK IS HUGE!!!!!

This are from yesterday - this is ONLY 2 coats!! I think the rattle can camo underneath may be helping it..

Still some runs you can't really see in the photos, but all in all I am impressed - In fact my neighbor came over yesterday and said WOW that looks good, you did a lot of work
