Well after months of hard work, I finally got my cab painted!![:D] Its painted a metallic copper with silver metallic roof and strips on the bottom of the belt line.[8D] Now I can start to put everything back on it and get it on the chassis, Boy I hope I remember where everything all goes! I hope to have it on the road by the end of May!! Von

Seeing your progress always gives me a much needed kick in the pants to get back to work on my truck. Beautiful paint! Did you paint over the factory sound deadening stuff, and if so, how did you prep it? Can't wait to see it finished. Seth

Seth, I painted the whole cab, inside and the bottom as well. To prep the factory sound deadening stuff I first degreased and pressure washed it. Then I sand blasted it to etch the paint, next I scrubbed it with a brush and laquer thinner. Then I just used an epoxy primer first and then the polyurethane enamel. I think the paint is there to stay![:D] Here are a few more photos with the hood and doors on. I'll post more photos when I can get it outside and into the sun for some better shots! Von
