RustOleum Rattle Can Paint Job – Nardo Grey

So today I painted a 2008 Chevy Aveo using Rustoleum paint in a can. Looks pretty good if I say so myself.

I then put down 3 coats of SpeedoKote Clear coat.

Added HeadAche Rack / Back Rack

Today I decided to add a headache rack or back rack to the truck. I am still not sure how much I like this or not.

It was a used rack off a 2014 Chevy Silverado so it took some modification to get it to mount to the truck

Custom Painted My Truck LeadFoot Grey

So I have always wanted my truck LeadFoot Grey. Ford used this color on the 2018 Ford f150 as well as the 2018 Mustang Shelby GT then stopped using it.

I have always loved this color although I understand that there are some people that just hate the color grey (gray?) no matter what.

I started by going on the net and trying to order some of the LeadFoot Grey paint from Ford but the price was ridiculous! I also contacted my local auto paint supplier and again the cost was more then the truck was worth.

Painted On F-150 Hood Decal

So I went on eBay to look at the hood decals for a truck and I could not believe what they were going for.

It was way too expensive for just a sticker in my opinion.

So I got to thinking what if I could paint the same design on to the hood of my truck….

Free 8 x 10 Craigslist Camper Trailer

Today I picked up a very small camper trailer for free. Its not in real bad shape although I do not know the make or model or even the year of it.

My guess is that its late 60’s to early 70’s

Rustoleum Paint Over Bed Liner

So today I decided to change the color on the truck.

Because the base of the truck is covered in Rustoleum Bed Liner I figured why not use some Rustoleum paint and change the color.

I simply used semi-gloss white paint over the bed liner and used satin black over the bottom rockers as well as fender flares. I still need to sand, primer and paint the front bumper in satin black to match the rest of the trim on the vehicle.

Another Free Craigslist 35′ Camper Find

I ended up finding another free camper trailer on Craigslist.

The lady I got it from said she tried to contact and give it to some local scrap yards but they would not take it.

She also said that she tried to give it to some scraper guy and he agree to come get it for $600!

Rustoleum Bed Lined My Entire Truck

So today I decided to Raptor line my entire truck. Its just bed liner made by Rustoleum but I think it looks great! Once it was dry I used the claw part of a hammer to see if I could scratch the finish off and to my surprise this stuff is tuff as nails! If you guys have an off road vehicle or just an older vehicle that needs alot of  body work you should consider using bed liner.

My After Market LEDS Are Defective!

So today I was in my local Harbor Freight and when I returned to my truck I found one of the after market led tail lights was missing the clear cover.


So today I found a free solar water heater on CraigsList. I made the trip to Grand Rapids and met Rob to pick it up.
