Weaze-mobile 2.0
« on: September 09, 2010, 03:34:51 PM »
  So0ld my truck today. Funny, It's my first day back in Ohio, and I sold it. Woohoo!!!  So, here's the next ride, I'm picking up in  Idaho. It's a '90, and has beenpretty much totally rebuilt. Could use a little body work, and a coat of paint, i'm thinking olive drab, or satin black, but mechanically in great shape. With my new job out there, I hardley drive at all, so it'll be perfect for me. It'll be a fun toy. What do you all think?

Nice little Zook! Congrats Weaze!

Time to go wheel the hell out of it.

Tell him to throw in the smoker and it's a deal.   8)

Looks like it travel well through snow.  I'm assuming it's a 4x4?

Unless someone stole the front driveshaft or front gears, I'd say it is.  ;D

It's my bro-in-laws. He made the smoker. Lives two streets over from me, so I pretty own the smoker already.  ;D

I vote for semigloss black. Flat black usually ends up looking like crap. I rattlecanned my Scirocco in semigloss when I was a lad and it turned out pretty good.

That's kinda the direction I was leaning. Already has black rims, and black bumpers. Might as well black it out. I think I'll take it to Macco, or Earl Shives. It has a little cancer that I'll take care of myself. And a Macco job will be good enough fo me, and what it is, and what will be done with it. Don't want to put a lot of money in the paint job for a mud truck.
 And, it's a four speed. I might go dig up some of those priceless BFI driving threads, just as a refresher on driving a standard. and, with a little practice, maybe in a few weeks, I'll be posting about power sliding through rush hour traffic in downtown Pocatello.  ;D

Real men rattlecan. Seriously, when you need to touch up you just shoot it. Once you black it out you don't even need to tape off unless you're touching up near glass.

I thought about it, but by the time I prime it, and paint, I'll have as much in cans, as I would Macco, and their paint will stick a little better.

Do it yourself, but don’t use paint cans. You can get some pretty good paint guns from Harbor Freight for cheap. Practice and patience is what it takes when it comes to auto painting. Masking is the most important, but grueling part, of painting.

No good place to paint but the driveway, or I would.

I've done that with surprisingly good results. Bugs are your enemies.
