Exactly!!! Very Happy

(Color change was to make the truck look more like a DD than a work truck.)

As I click away from a craigslist ad for a camper shell... grin

Can't stack the mason jars too high!

(I actually have family back in time in the running business... there was a distillery down the road. And there's a big racing heritage here)

Got a good amount done (finally)! Need about another weekend's work on the cab. Then got to pull the hood and cowl.

A couple of coats on the truck now. Bed is also about done. I guess I should buy a buffer to finish it up, huh?

(Pics are after a sand and I hadn't cleaned it up yet...)

I will say that I kinda regret going with the darker color; I can see sooooooo many new dents and dings.

I'm leaving it for now, but the passenger door needs to be stripped and filled flat.

But then I stand back and think "what can brown do for you?!"Very Happy

Bleh, I don't like tape! The PO left the marker lights on the truck while painting around them. Took me all of 3 minutes to remove them [confused] But they're been tape clad for about 4 months now.

Wow! I didn't think this tape was suppose to stick like that. I'm using the what looks like the same tape that has been covering some parts for awhile. Oh well.

It hangs on there if it's been on for a while. But keep in mind the truck's been outside all the time. Hopefully you don't have as much of a problem!

I've had this happen as well, albeit with cheap household grade masking tape. The car I was working on was my driver at the time, (my old green '92 GT) and was always in the rain and hot summer sun. The tape was on for maybe a few weeks. I suspect sitting through the coooold winter will cause this too - mighta had that experience with my Cougar, but that was 15+ years ago. scratch

Now on the other hand, there is a paint and bodyshop supply place across the street from my dayjob, and I bought some of THEIR blue masking tape. Best I've ever used, and probably the same price or cheaper than a roll from the grocery store. I had the luggage rack on my replacement decklid masked for at least 6 months, albeit sitting inside my house, and that tape came right off with no readily visible residue. I still have some, and should be finally putting it to some productive use here in the next few months...

I think the masking tape from the McParts stores probably isn't as good as what you'd get at a bodyshop supply house.

The blue tape I have is auto body tape. So maybe I won't have that problem.

Still not a good idea to leave it on too long. If it is gonna be a while (over 2 weeks) I always take it off and retape when needed. Tape is not really cheap but if it could cause problems down the road then an extra $5 now IS cheap. my cents

I know what you mean. It was falling in my paint while its was drying. Didn't seem to cause a problem though.

I don't have the proper shop to spray, so I spray outside. Looks like I'll try to squeeze everything inside to roll the rest.

Hooray for progress!!! Can't spray outside anymore because of the pollen, so roll on I shall.

Another coat and I'll sand tomorrow before a couple more...
