Default Painting bed cap

Going to rattle can paint this cap mocha Frost is available which is the color of my 94 supercab.

As you can see in the photos a lot of the clear coat has peeled off I'm not planning on taking it all off,. Experience tells me it's not worth the trouble. Just going to feather edge and prime.

Using DupliColor products, which primer should I use? is my first question.

Oh! I got sidetracked, still sanding, took off most of the paint and clear off the top and the sides, I'm beginning to realize the futality of taking it all down to the fiberglass,

Picked up white primer, and the base coat matches the truck almost perfectly! I have since become aware of spraymaxx K2 clear coat, pretty cool stuff very hard, which is what we need for clear coat.

I never bothered painting my cap, but I took off most of the peeling clear with my pressure washer.

Hours & hours.... 120, 220, 400, grits. Almost ready for primer!

( Although it may take me a week to do all the masking, then a storm will come up and blow it all off of course LOL)

Using Dupli-Color white sandable primer which should be scrubbed with 600 or Scotch-Brite. In prep of "mocha Frost "

This person rated DupliColor clear coat over spraymax clear coat, kind of surprised me, but I'm going to go DupliColor clear.

I'm really getting antsy to start using this truck now that I finally have the pinched O2 sensor harness fixed.

Kind of trying for my last hurrah kinda sorta with this truck. I'll be 70 in July even though I look like I'm ....45 "ahem" my little sis is 61 and she gets carded LOL

This baby is going to look so good on top!

It's about 18 years old I designed it my son and I built it, we built & restored seven or eight. It actually is possible to build something new that looks old lol
