i would just use regular spray paint... i dont think there is anything that you can buy for cheap that will not eventually start wearing off....

Anything from PPG is usually excellent.
My dad was a painter for 15 years and he would never not use PPG paints.

Back to the blue oval: 08 F350 FX4 CCLB - DPF/EGR delete - Spartan tuner - S&B CAI - 4 in DP to 5 in SP

First truck: Early 99 F350 SC LB ZF6 4WD - SOLD

Powder coat it

2000 F-350 CC 7.3
M&M Truck Conversions Hauler Bed
Quadzilla 4 position chip
4" Turbo Back Exhaust
Gauges

2008 F-250 CC 6.4
Bone Stock

Will order a 6.7 to replace the 2000 7.3 once the 6.7's have been in the real world about a year and they are proven.

Rustoleum primer, then 3-4 coats of flat black. I shoot it with a cheap HVLP gun. Painted alot of homemade bumpers and racks like that, and holds up good.



Everyhting on the above truck was homeade and painted with Rustoleum.
