I just scored a running S-10 extended cab for $726. She's solid, straight, & has leather seats. That's the good stuff. On the bed side of things, the stereo wiring needs completely redone since the PO has wires going everywhere, the driver door handle is broke, windows are off track, & worst of all, it's several different colors, among other small problems. Since this isn't G3 related, it's in the OT section. It's already been spray painted on & I ain't dropping much money into an old work truck, so I've decided to get a few cans of primer (or flat color), some sand paper, & bring some buddies over with a couple of 30 packs for a priming party.

No flaming on the spray paint part. I know it's wrong, I know it won't look great. It's cheap, easy, & going on a POS work truck just to make it one solid color. I'd like to find some bright flat red, but it seems impossible. Probably going to lower it & the Vette wheels have already been transferred for the moment. What's a good color choice from the ones I've got listed? Grey primer is out, just not into it. As always, I like opinions & thoughts.

Ehh. Not really my style, but I was thinking of either maroon, bright red, or tan & doing the bumpers & trim pieces in satin or flat black. The Vette wheels look purdy good on there, so this gives me an excuse to give Brown Eye a new set of shoes. I'm hoping to keep the total cost involved below $1,000 on this truck. Not like it's gonna win any styling or speed contests & I doubt that book values will ever soar on an S10, LoL.

Bright red would look good with the trim flat black

If I could find bright red cheap enough in stores I wouldn't even be debating the color, but I ain't paying $8 a can for high temp VHT red. I'm thinking minimal effort without looking too cheap around $3-4 a can & some wet sanding to smooth things out. Right now the truck is red, turquoise, & blue all shining through in spots covered by really old spray can black primer.

Why not? Make it look like a NASCAR truck with all the fancy stripes and two tone colors. Be forewarned tho, If Johnny Huggins, or whatever his name is, sees it he will cancel your subscription to PHR. JB

affraid I'd rather stick with what I got than that crap. Rainbow flakes & pastels need to stay in the 1980's where they were forgot about by most of us normal people.

Just found the CL ad. Don't know why it's still up, but whatever. It looks much better in pics than in real life. The hood has spots of turquoise, the body has spots of white & red poking through, & the primer was clearly spray can with new black spots over the old faded stuff. They tried taking a wet shot so it wasn't as apparent, but hey I scored it for $726.00! BTW, the seats don't need covering. They are leather with one rip on the passenger side. Smile

I've decided to do a rusty/white two tone with the white being in the middle. Deciding factor was finding Rusty Metal Primer with 33% more free & using white to break up the body more. Cheap is always cool in my book. Should have "after" pics this weekend if it ever stops raining here.

Laugh all you want, I'd be happy driving that car. My next street machine will be something small like that. I almost bought a Monza as a matter of fact, but a truck is more usable for working.

Almost got this Monza.
