Yeah its alot of work but like anything it just takes practice. Unless I hit the lottery or am locked in by insurance I will never pay for a paint job.

I already painted the other half. This evening I will get the tape off and start reassembling it.

Thanks John

I masked the flares off, they are still black. I will be selling the truck soon anyway. I don't need 2 trucks, this one was just a project. I have the bed standing up in the garage but it has a dent on both sides.
