    I am spraying it myself. I bought it all hit on the side. Did the body work. And I am going to sell this truck to buy a duramax so gonna paint it and clean it up nice. I bought the truck back in 05 or 06 for $8k so. I got a pretty good deal. And it came with the 8ft MM2 plow. Only has 120k on it at the time.

    Well if you have the room to fix f250man's and are offering, we can fix the waves in my passenger door from cutting it too close to a frozen snowbank while you are at it :)

    very nice, body work looks top-notch. are you repainting the whole truck or just blending it in around the primed areas?

    is this truck a stroker?
    what year truck are you looking at when purchasing the dmax?

    I am going to spray the entire side. Because my garage is not big enough and those damn lolli columns there its hard to do the entire truck. I plan on doing the entire side and blending into the front fender. Nah my truck has the 5.4 V8 in it. If it was a stroker I would be keeping it. I am looking for a 06 or newer dmax. Crew cab short bed. But I can get a really good deal on another ext cab short bed I will take that too.

    man that prep blows you have to wash those parts before you prep them all your doing is grinding crap salt and dirt into the base. primier is not made to be wet and washed and run it i the snow and expect it to take paint that will hold up.

    the work looks good your just missing the major first step in prep, wash and dewax, the prim on the sides need a good resand and reprime before paint to get the comtainments out

    it is clean in the second to last pic. I am aware of having to scuff the entire surface. I took the mud flap off of the front fender and there was paint flaking I was like O well I guess I am fixing this now haha. My father was a body man of over 30 years and I picked up quit a few things from him.
