Took me 4 years to get it painted, finally got it. It's the first one I ever painted. Made a few mistakes but learned a lot on the way.

As I bought it in 2008

Actually I did enjoy it. I think I could do a lot better job "IF" there is a next time. Sure was a lot cheaper doing it myself.

Comparing to what I payed for the '79 crewcab:bawling::bawling: to be painted yes and I better job, now if we're talking about the '69 Camaro my painting couldn't come anywhere close but we wont talk about the price

Came out good. I'm sorta liked the old OEM paint job. My step-father had on just like it with a 351 and a snow plow. I like the wheels perfect era fit.

Thanks guys, I wasn't to crazy about the two tone so I just went with the original basic color. I also painted the original wheels the same color should I ever decide to put them back on. Also thanks to whom ever got the pics posted.
