There are a few members on here that have painted their trucks. I'm sure one of them will chime in. I sure hope you are going to do a lot of body work before you try and paint.

That's good. I'm sure good prep work will make a huge difference in the final outcome. If it's not just surface rust, you may wanna cut it out and replace pieces where needed. A lot more work, but you don't wanna paint over a spot that is gonna be a problem again later. Good luck tho, truck has a lot of potential.

Depends on the paint and the colour! Your best bet is to talk to someone at the store you're buying the paint from.

That should be plenty if you're sticking with black! Depending on where you're getting it from you may be better off to grab an extra one or two quarts if it's returnable!
