SO I GOT SOME DIFFERENT IDEA's

many of you may know i have been painting my truck over the last week. i was set on rattle canning it black. but now i have the option of using a spray gu.
but i figured since my truck has its fair share of dents and dings. (black makes them show) what other colors would look good.?

Nah, no Mossy stripes.

I think a clean Gloss white looks good.

BRIGHT RED but it will show dents !

Take your time or more time and prep it out, then any color will do !

rhino line is heavy and make it squat depending on how much you put on.

if your going through all that trouble to paint it you may as well fill the dents with bondo and smooth everything out
