Findly did it. Tomorrow the finish sanding on the primer then the real paint goes on. I will pick out the color tomorrow. Still not sure what it will be. Won't be long now should have the cab ready by the weekend with all the seals and glass in. The I get the tires next Friday and can role it out of the shop to set it on the frame. Mark H.

Its great! Thats a good color. Red or green would be my choice. Not red and green though, that'd make it look like a christmas ornament.

Haven't been on the site too much lately so I'm not sure what you're working on there. What make and year is the vehicle? Looks like a pretty nice job in any case. I redid a '51 Dodge pickup once but not to the extent you're doing. As far as color, could I give you one suggestion? Not being an expert or anything but it seems that I've seen a lot of old vehicle restorations ruined (in my opinion) by metallic paint of any color. Just the plain colors seem to look better I think. Just my two cents. Keep us posted on your progress.

It is a 1948 Dodge B-1 Power Wagon. It won't be Metalic Paint belive me. It most likey will be original Dodge Red of the era that was the original color of it. I might also paint it forest green which was another original color. They had about 5 colors Black, Red, Blue, Yellow and Forest Green. The place I am getting my paint from has a old book with the proper color chips for the original paint colors to pick from and match up with. Single Stage Enamal paint is what I am using doing it with. Mark H.

Power Wagon eh? Very nice as well as rare. There is one in town here (well, nearby Edmonton) that a fellow has. It is the green color (so was my Dodge) ... somehow I thought that was called "Dodge Truck Green", does that show up in anything you've seen? Anyways, this one is the mid 50's version (had twin carbs) and I think it had only seen duty up north at some military airbase for delivering mail. The guy that has it takes it to all the local shows, tractor stuff, etc. He has the back tarped with a canvas tent-like canopy. Very nice with black fenders. If you can believe it, somebody "keyed" the side of his truck from front to back at one of the shows a few years back. Never could figure those guys out. Make sure you keep the forum posted as you go along.

Your right Dodge Truck Green I did this one Dodge Truck Red finley made up my mind at the last second. I will post a picture of the finish paint tomorrow. We just got done with it tonight and it took all day wet sanding and putting the 4 coats on. Mark H.
