new project (painting the 93)

My buddy runs a small body shop out of his polebarn and we're seeing how fast we can paint my D250. He has another truck coming in after the 4th and we both plan doing family stuff over the holiday.

We started with this.


We got her to this point in a few hours.


Sanding and prep tomorrow.

I'm leaving all the badges and trim off, making it my own.

i painted my truck (disassembly,body work and paint) in about 2 weeks and a couple days. thats working full time job and working on the truck on nights except on Saturday and Sunday i would work on it all day. It can be easily done but you'll have some late nights!

well, after 3 days of busting our butts we got the body work done and the primer laid down. We'll finish prepping for paint tomorrow and should have it painted on Monday.

Let us know what you used for material: paint, primer, body filler, etc.
Prices too if you don't mind sharing. I've got to paint mine soon.
