    Hey guys look at my beast its a 91 f250. Been lookin at the site for a while figured i'd post. I got it for 1,600 on 8/20 and finally got it on the road on 9/16, look at the dates on the pics, primer two days ago and pullin my wifes car that broke down today 9/16 she ain't new but I've only got 1,900 into it total, and it runs awesome. The only thing left is some more cosmetics and fender flares. check out the attachment of the before pic I painted this in my driveway. My first attempt at paint and body work!!

    Respectable to look at, and functional. Now you are ready to make money! Who needs brand new trucks? We keep 2 "newer" trucks, and the rest are from 1977-1986. If you can work on them yourself, and keep up the maintenance, good for you. It is SO much easier (and cheaper) to figure out an old truck than to get that doggone engine code light to go off in a new truck!

    I know a couple of you guys above have experience painting vehicles... could either of you give me a run down on how to do it?

    I just bought a F-450 and it's only got a cab, rear is a stake truck... I want to paint the cab red to match my F250. It's currently white.
    Should I do this myself? I want it to look nice. I have a air compressor and paint gun already.

    Any advise please!

    I got all my info on www.ford-trucks.com It goes pretty indepth on paint and body work. Click on forums, then surf down to paint and bodywork, then read the step by step sticky about painting
