Yeah is that really a rattle can paint job or is that a miss print?

Re: January '13 TOTM Winner!

yup the entire truck is rattled canned. When I was shaving things, I didnt want to have primer spots all over the truck. So I ended up just doing the entire thing in rattle can. Dont worry, it will get a professional paint job once all my body mods are done

Re: January '13 TOTM Winner!

Well IMO it looks pretty damn good, you probably just motivated half these people here to go ahead and attempt thier own rattle can jobs, don't really know if that's necessarily a good thing.

Re: January '13 TOTM Winner!

thanks everyone. Its been a long build to get the truck to where it is now. Nowhere near being done with it. I am trying real hard to get my v8 swap completed for this show season, but I am in the middle of saving up to buy a house, so I have to keep my priorities in check at the moment

Re: January '13 TOTM Winner!

Nice.
Did you heat them in the oven and pry them apart?
Was the Amber a PITA to remove?

Re: January '13 TOTM Winner!

i used a heatgun, but an oven will work too. Just make sure you do some research on how hot the temp needs to be and how long. Once you separate the headlights, the amber reflector just comes right out. Then reseal the headlights and youre good to go
