Default Fixing up my 94 2500 Cummins/New Paint

I bought this truck back in June and it was looking pretty sad so I thought I would fix it up a bit. I painted it with some spray cans I got from Home Depot, put on a new bumper, grille, and new headlights. Then I added a leveling kit and some new wheels and tires and removed the side steps. She's not looking to bad now. Oh and I had to get a Transformers emblem for the grille.

Some before shots.










Mid way shots.








The after shots.

You sure that was done with a spray bomb. It looks pretty good. What kind of paint

Rustoleum Painters Touch Ultra Cover 2X. The body shop guy where I work recommended it. I've only found it at Home Depot.

I did two coats and only used about 6 or so cans for the whole project. When it was done I wet sanded it with 2000 grit sand paper, then polished the heck out of it and then waxed it.

You did a damn good job with spray paint! Holy Crap! Looks like it was sprayed in a booth. I might have to do that on my bed cover.
