  7. Paint Options and other questions

    First, a local shop is having a deal for $270 base price paint jobs, so I'm rushing to earn the money and get my BII running, so now i have a possible issue: either way, I will black out the truck, so should I do gloss or satin?

    Paint exhaust manifold?

    I have to do a head gasket job on my 4-banger, and while I was pulling it apart I realized that the exhaust manifold is kinda rusty... Not rusty to the point where it needs replacing, but rusty enough to look bad. I was wondering what the best way to paint it is, if there is one. And if there...

    Grill swap

    I have a 97 B4000 4x4, and I was wondering if there is any ranger grills that fit my truck. I don't like the Mazda grill at all, and was looking for a billet grill or something. any information that could help me, that doesn't require me to swap the front clip would be great.

    Anyone paint vehicles for a living or hobby?

    I'm a mechainc by trade but as of late I've turned to auto body work and fabrication to fill idle time. I know, not often do you do both but it's a fun and challenging set of skills to master. I enjoy a challenge, or a little bit of a beating. I'm almost finished with final blocking (320) of my...
