Post by blue Oval on Thu Feb 21, 2013 5:30 pm


before an after

Thinking about getting rid of this orange color theres going to be some welding for awhile so thinking spray complete with rattle cans just to kill the orange . cut and weld as needed when done get a real paint job . I like the way trim black looks any other spray paint cans with that low seen ? what have you guys done ?

Nice piece of work! That corner is really starting to take shape. Seems like more vanners are trying the low sheen paints. As with high sheen paints, the better the bodywork underneath the better the paint looks. I guess I'm old school, cause I like the shiny paint jobs but I've seen some pretty nice low sheen ones that looked really awesome as well. You can always try it out with the rattle cans and if you don't like it, go back to shiny.
