    It not factory paint. It was used to be Red then Black then White now.

    I like white paint on 95 F250 it look cheap but it tough to scratch paint try with my key it tough paint.


    landscape company didn't sand red or black paint off they just paint cover.

    Well I want repaint bronco and F250 with that type of paint. Anyone know what call it is?


    It Thicker look like they repaint 3-4 coats but they told me they did 1 coat. Forgot to ask them what paint they use.

    Tomorrow I try get good closely picture of paint.

    Go to an Auto parts store and ask them what kind of paint will give you a "hard" finish and they will tell you what to use.

    Hey Mil, There are generally 2 types of paint used. Base coat clear coat and single stage urethane. In my opinion the BCCC will last longer and is more UV resistant and can be "shinier", but is more prone to chipping. SS Urethane is a little more chip resistant, but is lees UV resistant and can tend to fade. Show cars use BCCC. Daily drivers and/ or work trucks will do fine with single stage urethane and it can be buffed to and really good shine.

    Paint is fade white so it could be single stage urethane

    Plus they didn't sand off or put primer. They just spray cover paint. It isn't shine like car paint. More like trailer paint.



    Are single stage urethane easy to paint or different? Air gun?

    single stage urethane you paint just like any other paint. For good results you need to at least scuff the paint and prime it. Sounds like the person who painted the truck before just did an el cheapo job to cover it. Heck I once painted a 69 ford with oil based house paint and a wagner power painter . You just need a paint gun (a Harbor freight $20 special will do) and a compressor that will run it. Painting is not a about painting it is about the prep work and the bodywork underneath. Paints are pretty forgiving and can be wet sanded and buffed to a good shine even if the actual. Paint work is marginal.

    The paint probally had a harder added. Imron is a very hard paint used on Fire Trucks I bet it,s not that.
    Degrease it with mean green then a heavy mix of laundry detergent.
    You might think about wet sanding it with some 320 grit about 3 times. Then step up to 400 grit and wet sand it again 3 times of more. Get it good and smooth before you even think about shooting primer or paint. As far as paint it could of come from a few places. NAPA, body shop supply, el-cheap-po we paint it place, I got a gallon of paint in the garage guy. Get me a gallon of Sherwin Williams Super Paint and My airless sprayer.
    I could make it look great. I want to put a great paint job on a demo derby car some day.

    Why don't you go check Dearborn school like O.L.Smith or Dearborn High and check their HI program which is for deaf.

    I am sure you know why.

    Don't correct my spell they are 100% correct spell. Have you see some members here are spell bad and we don't correct their spell.

    ok i didnt mean to sound mean for harassing you about the sentence problem, i know a guy over on lawnsite has a little caption down on the bottom of his to say he is hearing impaired. It really helps out so people dont correct his grammar. So now that we got that little problem cleared up i have to ask the next one, how did you get so dumb? did the last guys you asked this question to tell you to "lick it and tell me what it taste like" ? i cant tell you what kind it is but i can tell you its a lead base paint. that would explain you being so dumb. NO ONE is going to be able to tell you what kind of paint is is by the color!!!!!!!!! its white!!!

    For that sig it useless here.

    Reason why I ask about paint here. Because I want know what type they use on thier plow trucks. Lot owners here do paint their plow trucks so I thought it good idea to ask them.

    ok call up finish master and ask them what a good hard paint is that will hold up. they will tell you exactly what kind to use but like all of us they arnt going to be able to tell you what kind the old owner used with a picture being the only information.
