what color is the truck now? Is the paint 100% shot or what? I really hope you aren't talking about putting it in spray can primer, that would be horrible. Primer isn't going to protect your truck like paint and clear will either. A faded paint job looks 100 times better than primer to me. You can always buff the paint and try to restore it to "decent" condition.

If you will be spraying the primer, just spray the paint then clear next. Shouldn't be more than $250 in materials and then of course your time in prepping it. Primer just isn't cool :read:

Where did i say you were a "stupid 15 year old"?

If you think it is cool, then go for it. I personally like washing my truck and seeing results though :D

dude, primer is gay, and what are you talkin about 4k for a paintjob, do your own body work, LEARN, spray the primer yourself and goto maaco and get the thing shot witha clear for under 1k:read:

I painted my truck myself, and the paintjob was great, people love to talk shit about maaco paint,ive seen a couple that look pretty good.

anything is better than primer :pow:

I've never heard of a "non-shiney" clear coat. Clear coat is just that, a coat of clear material that adds depth to something and brings out the color. If you want to see what something will look like cleared, then just put water on it. This is what i do while wetsanding a piece before clear to remove trash.

If you are talking about those "primer show vehicles" they aren't in primer for the most part. They are actually painted with paint that has a flattening agent in it. If you want to see an example of this look at Mike's truck (member name: grounded )
