I didnt paint it, I did the body work and took it to maaco and got one crappy quality paint job for 600 bucks, not to mention it was my first go around at body work and that sucked as well. lol

Now rust is coming back which is why I got a rust free bed, doors and front fenders waiting to go on when I repaint the truck again next year, I wont mess with painting, I dont have a paint booth or anything so I just thing Id screw something up, the taping would take you four or five hours, its just time consuming to get it all right.

I wish I had the time to repaint it this year but money is forcing me to wait til next year

that wouldnt be too bad then, I may teach myself how to paint, just would have to find something to learn on first
