The truck is every bit a winter beater.
It’s main function is to be-bop around in the winter snow, load down with materials from Homedepot, help friends move (the “friend with truck” scenario), and to just have fun with.
This truck actually is my pride and joy (more joy than anything else)… I wanted a cheap vehicle that goes from A to B, and something I could tinker with, that’s what I have.
I can’t afford to go out and spend a ton of money in materials, I don’t own a garage, and I am very grateful for what I do have.
I make no apologies for it.
For those of you who have actual shops and/or garages where you can work on your vehicles, good for you! One day I hope to be in your ranks (I really do).
For the rest of us who live paycheck to paycheck and would still like to tinker with the rust buckets we love…
Today I started with more taping... I know it's a lot of effort for a paint job that is going to fall apart before the first snow... but it's all about the fun.
Now here's where it gets a bit weird.
I repainted it silver, but then I added in shading... then the part that wont make sense at this point will be the color shade.
The lines of color in the silver and black are very deliberate.
As some have already figured out, the truck was never intended to be silver
So to let this cure overnight before the next step... here's where we stand
Here's a better look at the shading
And the COG line
I hope that the weather holds up this week, I’m looking forward to shooting the actual color to it tomorrow if at all possible.
