Lessee..
10ish minutes cutting the mesh,
Around an hour for the primer to dry,
hour for the red,
15 minutes cutting the star out of masking tape,
20 minutes for the second trip to Home Depot,
and another hour for the blue,
and.. roughly 20 minutes to get it secured on the grille and attach it to the hood.
So about 3-4 maybe?

Awesome job! judging by the job you did with that, I know you can paint your truck yourself and it will look fine.

That looks great! I told my wife a few years ago that I was going to do that and never got around to it for fear of how it might turn out. Now that I know it looks great, I just might have to do it after all! Great job!

Do it! I had no experience, turned out pretty painless, I'm sure yours will look awesome! Especially since the rest of the truck looks damn good already unlike mine..

Oh, btw, where are you from in the metroplex?
I'm from White Settlement myself!

Here's what I did with the leftover red.. These things were hideous and rusty.. now they look brand new! Hopefully the pressure won't make them peel or anything.

Looking good! I can imagine the soccer mom-mobile and smart cars just LOVE seeing that in their back window!
