Here at the shop I think we have decided (as we get bored easy and like to try new things)to paint half of my drag car with this method, and shoot the other half with a dupont mix and see if anyone can tell the difference, and see how each holds up.
It will be a bit, we are scheduled out about 4 weeks right now.

I found that a roller doesn't reach many hard to get places, so I used a toothbrush.

Think the truck turned out great! You need to post a before and after pic in your first post

Don't forget the small foam brushes also. I used brightside fire red and found rustoleum's safety red was a great match for those really hard to reach places like where the bed is next to the rear of the cab on the truck.

Okay I just found out that only a mod can post on a thread in the tech archives, also I can't move just a portion of the thread here, so I suggest we all use it as a ref and then post results here.
I think in the long run a bunch of the things covered early on in the mega thread will be revisited here.
Sort of like this:

WHEW!! I thought I'd lost you guys, I'm new to this Forum thing and kept looking for a link on the old thread to get here. Tonight I decided to search for this and lo and behold here you all are. Thought I'd lost you for sure.

69DartGT: are you saying that if someone asks for advice that we know is in the original thread we should refer them there and try to keep this thread for progress pics only? I have not started my car yet and I may have some questions to ask. Since I have read the entire first two parts I will try to keep my questions to furthering everyone's information. I would assume this will be fine and we are just trying to avoid rehashing old info.

Okay, all joking aside, I do have a quick question for those of you who spray bombed thier jambs....
How many coats did you guys do with the bombs on your jambs?

(69DartGT: Thanks for the clarification)

On a sidenote: I just washed a brand new 2008 King Ranch F-350 for a customer here at the dealership. This truck is gloss black. You guys would not believe how horrible the orange peel is on this thing and it's a $55,000 truck. With the attention to detail that we all give, our paint will come out way better than this "factory" paintjob!!!
