MX2: Painting the Truck

Posted on Posted in MX2: 2001 Ford Ranger

I masked off the truck in prep for paint.

Then jumping into a tyvek suite I begin to paint. The paint I’m using is a white epoxy for durability. With epoxy paint I was worried about it kicking off before I could get a full coat, so I had to move fast. After the second coat I snapped a few photos. I gave the final coat a mist of paint to give it an orange peal texture.

The next day I pulled off all the masking. I parked the truck outside to it would air out a bit. Still smelled from the paint.

I ran out of room when I painted everything else, so I had to paint the grill after the fact.
