I decided I was going to paint my top, b/c I thought it would look pretty silly once I got the Rust Bullet applied. Since everything is eventually going to be covered in black Durabak, I decided to throw down some black paint for the time being.

Once again, I used Duplicolor bumper paint. I got about 4 good coats on it. It's not perfect by any means, but it'll suffice until I can roll on some bedliner.

Other than the wind whipping around all morning, it went on real well.









As you can see in that last pic, I have a pretty nice dent from the spare tire carrier. I hope to get that pulled out next weekend. My buddy thinks the carrier will fit his blazer, so I'm letting him have it(I dont think it'll fit). If all goes well, I should be able to do my exterior in Rust Bullet. It would only take a few hours, so I'll just keep my fingers crossed.


The other good thing that happeded today, was my Lightning ECM showed up.:chili: :chili: :chili:

I bought it over on Nloc the other night.

It's out of a '93.

i think the top looks sweet as is. esp. around the rubber. that trim piece looks way better. i would leave it that way IMO. spend the money on sumthin else instead of extra durabak. looks almost new. that bumper paint is the shee-ot.

Yeah, I always hated the way that faux chrome trim looked around the window. I'm happy with the way that turned out.

I am really amazed with the bumper paint. It's stuck to everyting I've tried to paint, REALLY well. Plus it seems like it holds up to abuse better than some of the other paints I've messed around with.

Yeah, but it's not my driveway, so it doest really matter.

I had to do everything at my buddies place. He's in base housing, which is no better than you average crackhouse, so I dont think anyone will notice:thumbup
so then all you need to do is continue painting until you have a body outline and no one will notice??????????
