It's been a while since I posted any pictures here but I thought you may like to see this one. Summer long project just finished and delivered today. One of the nicest paint colors I have done yet. I like it, I hope you do too.

WOW! Museum quality paint job! Wish I had someone around here that could do a paint job like that! Just beautiful!

That is absolutely beautiful. Who did the paint job and is all that airbrushed accents or taped off and painted?

I'm not usually a fan of pumps with bling, but that thing looks incredible.

Thanks everyone. No air brushing, just fine line tape and 3 colors. I did all the paint and body work.+

I like to detail the inside a little too.

I like original pumps, but that is an absolutely amazing paint job that suits the pump. You have created a true work of art.

Very nice...could you show us a close up on the lettering as you did in the 'before' pic?
Posted By: canadianoilguy Re: 5 GALLON FRY - Mon Sep 19 2011 01:31 PM
I agree... some of the nicest color choices I have seen - makes the pump look classy! Did you have to lay a clear coat over everything to fill in the "ridges" from the masking tape?

Very Cool Two-Tone Paint Job, TUCKER! This really belongs to a museum!

Love that BLACKHAWK lense!

Hi Nicole. My hand is not steady enough to paint in the letters. It looked to me like the previous owner used a black magic marker. I sometimes have to stop myself to keep from over doing it. Thanks to everyone for the kind words.






See what I mean? Very easy to get carried away. Yes the paint is PPG basecoat clearcoat. 2 or 3 coats of clear, then wetsand with 2000 paper and polish back to a shine.
