Upgrades


Recommended Posts

Well stuff is starting to look up since I got back from vacation. Had a tree limb fall on hood of truck while we were gone and it did $904 worth of damage to truck. Started looking around for a new hood and found a hood, grill, and bed for $200. those three parts will fix most of the body damage to my truck. Also got my new fuel tank/toolbox combo ordered, new tires will be put on truck on Wednesday and depending on money will order a set of RV275's to put in. Hopefully the good luck will continue for a while. Anyone had there whole truck painted? If so what did it cost?

Sorry to hear about the tree limb on the hood ,more money out of your pocket, but a good deal on the used body parts. Here in CA a good 2 stage paint job goes for $1500 to $2000. You can go to a production shop ,like Macco, and get one for $400-$600 but in a year it will look like S%. Also out here they use a water base paint that meets the CARB (California Air Resource Board) specs. If I want a good job I have to go to Arizona or Tia Junana, Mexico. See if you can find a good painter that will do it on the side. Some times the guy will buy the paint and rent a spray booth. Call around and / or ask friends and coworkers what their experiences have been. Remember, just because the guy has a spray paint gun doesn't make him a painter . Good Luck.
