First XL body I painted

Post by donyms » Thu Jun 19, 2014 9:11 pm

Well, i said I would never do my own body but I found this nice looking 2003 Chevy Silverado body and I just had to give it a try. Everything went well, the only thing I did wrong was I went higher on the sides of the truck with the gun metal grey more than I intended but the blend came out perfect. I used Tamia paint, gun metal and blue both metallic. Next time we have sun and I have a minute I will take a picture out in the sun so the metallic shows good. Oh, the stickers with this body really are terrible, none of them were cut right but I guess it came out okay. Anyway, here it is. I still have another new stock body so I will continue to bash with them and save this one for the shelf I guess. LOL!

Looks good. Any more pics?
Wish they made one of these for the XS so I could match it to my '05 Chevy truck.
