Home Depot sells quart cans of Rustoleum satin black in my area.

Lonnie: Here's a tip (not mine)...use aluminum foil instead of tape to mask lines, carbs, etc under the hood. Way easier to apply than tape.

David - Where you a couple of days ago!!! I'm not looking forward to pulling off the tape and cleaning up the goo.

All - I painted seven black paint samples today. I'll evaluate them tomorrow.

Hey Lonnie, dont know your budget but did you ever consider powder coating? Over the years I've rattled can'd but eventually the elements just takes its toll. Example, inner fender blasted andy p coated should be no more than $50 bucks.hopefully you have a local company that provides this service in you area.

Powder coat is pretty neat stuff. However, I'm painting everything while it is on the truck - not removing. My truck is a fair weather truck. The inner fenders don't get a lot of abuse. It's got a pretty easy life in it's old age.

I didn't know that powder coating was that inexpensive. Probably less than rattle can paint and blue tape.

also i do have a question about what people have done as far as the finish under the cab and maybe even the under side of the top of the cab where the headliner goes. What do people think of rhine lining these areas? i want something to last as to where paint will just wear over time, eventually rusting. let me know what your thoughts are on this

I finished painting the frame and inner fenders. I tested the gloss level of a number of rattle can black paints and chose Rustoleum Satin Black. Here is the gloss rank of the paints that I tested:

GLOSS
RANK / / BRAND / / PART # / / DESCRIPTION / / SHEEN-COLOR (Notes)

1 / / Rustoleum / / 252462 / / Automotive Aerosol / / Gloss Black
2 / / Dupli-Color / / DE1613 / /Engine Enamel / / Gloss Black
3 / / Rustoleum / / 209584 / / Automotive Aerosol / / Semi-Gloss Black (Similar to R Semi Gloss)
4 / / Rustoleum / / 7798830 / / Protective Enamel / / Semi Gloss Black (Similar to R Auto Semi Gloss)
5 / / Dupli-Color / / DE1635 / / Engine Enamel / / Ford Semi Gloss Black (Slight grey tint)
6 / / DuPont / / A-5099S / / 1K Bumper & Trim Black / / DuPont Satin Black (Slight grey tint)
7 / / Rustoleum / / 7777830 / / Protective Enamel / / Satin Black
8 / / Dupli-Color / / DE1634 / / Engine Enamel / / GM/CHRY Low Gloss Black (Flat, slight grey tint)

I should have prepped the inner fenders better with more sanding then prime and wet sand. Spent hours masking before spraying for a few minutes. Only sprayed a light coat on them. Heavy enough to have a uniform sheen, but light enough to avoid runs.

> Drvr Inner Fender
> Pass Inner Fender

I also painted the engine when I painted the frame and inner fenders.

Thanks for your help and advice.
