69 Dodge D100

Post by Bob69Dodge on January 18th 2012, 1:28 am

Ok this is what I have been doing in my limited spare time. Its a daily driver slant 6, 3 on the tree. The cab has been painted but is peeling badly and the box is pretty nasty.


I have a parts truck so I started practicing on the box since its in better shape. I did roll and brush the underside but wanted to spray the rest.
Knocked out some big dents lots of sanding and a bit of spot putty.


Primer sand primer sand It was my first time spraying so there were a few runs but turned out much better than I expected.
I have to say my $20 grinder from CT sure got a workout.





Still getting used to the spray gun but aside from a few runs there's very little OP. I'm happy with the results and once the snow melts I will be starting on the cab.

What kind of paint are you using? Seems like it's going to turn out nice.

I was surprised at the shape of the box considering the cab floor is completely rotted.
As far as paint goes I used the Rustoleum Gloss white, I figured it was a safe color for my first job.
I haven't wet sanded or polished, I'm going to wait till the whole truck is done. But It looks pretty good the way it sits

Good looking truck! Second to last year for that body style, IIRC. The grills got kind of sedate at the end.
My friend had one like it (might've been a few years older) back in the late '80s, with a 318 and automatic. It probably just needed a tune-up and a carb rebuild, but that was beyond any of our scope at the time, so he didn't have it long. It was the seafoam green like your box, and the shifter was like a floor shifter, but it was mounted in the dashboard! It looked like something you'd see in a much larger, and later, truck.

I've driven a lot of different cars, including an original Studebaker Avanti, a Checker Limousine, and a Yenko Turbo Z, but I've still never driven anything with a three on the tree!

Welcome.....Sweet truck and nice work!!!! Once you get good spraying the white then shoot the roof a different color for a cool 2-tone look.

IIRC, I had to google that one... and you do lol. I kind of like the three on the tree, I also have a 53 Pontiac with the same. That dash shifter is coming back in style, seen it in a windstar I believe it was.
I like the two tone idea but all white for now. That's what I like about this paint, tape it off and keep painting.

Just wondering if anyone knows how well Rustoleum holds up to gas being spilled on it. My gas tank is behind the seat and likes to spit up once in a while.

It will hold up if you add hardener to it. Gas will soften & discolor non-hardened enamel

Hardener it is then. Whatever paint was used on the cab is bubbling and coming off because of the gas.
