    Getting ready for a repaint

    Seeing how the election season is about over, it's time to give the truck a re-paint.
    Here is what it currently looks like:

    The new paint job will be Krylon Italian Olive below the pinstripe and Krylon Khaki above the pinstripe.

    Some existing rattle can jobs using the same paints:
    Italian Olive:

    Krylon Khaki:


    Will post pics when the project is done, hopefully by the end of next week.

    If done like any other paint job, it can look very good. Will it be matte or gloss finish?

    Will be flat/satin finish, no gloss.
    There might be a Ron Paul event in Florida in August, so I'm debating waiting til then to do the repaint, might just do the top part now and wait on the bottom, not sure.
    Driving into work at 6:30AM, half asleep, and having someone yell "GO RON PAUL" is getting a bit distracting, also starting to job hunt and don't want to be turned down cuz of some Romney supporter doing the hiring....

    Picked the hottest day of the year to do this, of course.

    Here's the money shot. Not too bad for a $30 paint job.
    Still gotta do the bed, might just use an exterior roll on for that.
