A 10 foot paint job is ,Don't get any closer than 10 feet and it looks good . Also you can see better in these pics where I cut the fenders for the flip forward front clip I talked about in a previous post .
Oh the white decals on door have been removed and the the red on rear of the fender will get painted black after rust repair .

My mantra is doing it like farmer Bill would have 60 years ago.
With a brush and whatever color was laying around.

Paul Nolz Your truck looks great, tilt should work good handy to get to so much. Have a 51 6400 pickup all done at home,8.25x20's shortened it to 98 inch wheelbase is my daily cruiser year around. Has 7/8 heim joint 4-link coil spring system,is about a 10 foot truck too !

Paul Nolz On 10 foot trucks once once bought a rusty 51 3600,no engine,had a jasper rebuild with about 5 yrs. of bean fuzz on it made my son his first truck,we primed with white till we got it OK. He ran the wheels off of that till it came time for...girls !

Paul Nolz You'll be able to tell when your getting it there "cause people will try to buy it. On our primered one we covered the seat,put in a fresh cardboard headliner,cut the sm 420 stick down like a Muncie,got a good heater and put on a nice flat bed !!
