    Default Let's see those DIY/rattle can, homegrown paint jobs...!

    I've got an old work truck that needs a cheap paint job. I'm thinking off masking it up and using a rattle can. I'm looking for ideas. If you've got a cheap paint project to show, i'd sure love to see it. Again, i have no intention of spending much money....i can literally pressure wash the old paint off.

    Spray cans are an easy way to go but for painting a whole truck might be a lil pricey. I would almost think if you had a spray gun and went to a auto body store and picked up a simple flat color that it shouldnt run you much. Ive painted 2 cars in my own garage before and for a simple easy spray i did it for under 70. If i can find pics of my 1990 chevy beretta i did ill post it up.
