haha thanks guys.

No, I don't need an alignment, it's just negative camber from being so low. My torsion bars are reindexed and I'm still running stock shocks and spindles. The truck tracks straight and the tires are wearing evenly.

As for the swirl marks, as I said, it's only the first coat and those swirls are from wetsanding it for the second coat which will go on next weekend. The roof needs to be finished off cuz it looks like crap right now, but the rest of the truck came out decent. I've got some minor runs I need to sand out too. That Duplicolor engine enamel has a really nice fan on it and sprays really well.

Hopefully next weekend it'll be all done.

The whole thing only took 7 cans of primer and 7 cans of paint so far.
