Got the frame painted. Used a good industrial, rust penetrating primer, and a good industrial black enamel. 50$ a gallon. I liked it, really good stuff.

I was looking into por15, but it is UV sensitive, and I got some really bad customer service from Carquest and por15. I went with Devoe Devshield 4130, rust penetrating primer, and PPG Bar-ox indusial alkyd enamel. It was about 50$ a gallon for the enamel and the primer. Laid down nice and is used on underground tanks. So I am pretty confident in it lasting a long time Now I am moving on to the body paint. I don't want to go through car quest, but I might have to. I am open to opinions. I am also trying to decide on a color scheme. I want to go with a blue interior and maybe a newer metallic chevy or dodge blue, or I could go with black and a blue interior, with ridged orange rimes. Lots of options!!!

Thanx for the paint info. My project is new steel so I don't need the rust primers but want a good tough top coat for the exterior. I plan to use a bed liner on the top of the flatbed and inside the boxes. I'll look into that Bar-ox for the outsides.

I bought my ppg paints at that place on Lake Otis, used to be called Professional Paints, but can't remember the current name.

Are you an experienced painter? I'm not and the tow rig I'm building is the first complete paint job I've done. I went with a solid color because metallics are so hard to shoot and have everything match.

I have painted one jeep with the Rubicon brown. It was a metallic brown, and I didn't have any problems. I have a heated paint booth now, so I should be able to do a better job

Sorry for the delay. I picked up an 84 chevy, with a 400 in it. The 700r4 was bad, so I am putting the 400/205 out of the original diesel in it. I need a daily driver if my dodge ever breaks down, 470000 miles on the dodge

upol from hi tech on lake otis. If your trying to get the body nice and straight its good stuff. High build so you can fill a lot of small dents without bondo. Also get some guide coat to let you know when youve sanded enough

I believe that I found a better alternative to auto paint, that costs over 300 per gallon. I will use industrial paint, that is good for rust, but bad for UV. Then I will have it wrapped in anchorage with what ever I want

Have you priced wrapping a vehicle? It'll make that $300/gal paint look like a real bargain
The finish below has to be very smooth and blemish free to make the wrap look good too.

I was going to have my semi truck wrapped. I got a quote from 3 places. All in the neighborhood of 25,000. I didn't pay that much for the truck, ha. Few paint quotes around 15k. I think this winter I will tackle it myself. And have some accents put on in vinyl to match it's trailer.

I got a rough quote for wrapping the truck and it was 1300 bucks!! I am going to paint the whole truck with the industrial paint and then have it wrapped.

I like the industrial paint because its cheap and tough. They use it for painting tanks before they bury them. The only downfall is that the paint does not hold up to UV rays as long as auto paint. The wrap blocks the UV. Problem solved

I had the hood roof and trunk of my race car wrapped in a single color, it was $2000.
I was quoted 7k to wrap the car, and this was a buddy deal. I think they left a zero off your quote

The finish under a wrap has to be perfect or it will look like crap. I had my hood repainted on the cheap before it was wrapped because of rock chips from road racing, they ended up repainting it. The wrap shows all the tiny inperfections you don't catch in paint.
