Cool Painted the 4runner today

So i've been talking with Randy and Ricardo about getting this current project done. As things progressed, I found out Randy would be out till the 13th. Ricardo was ready to help, though a bit hesitant on using his garage. Last week and 45$ later, I picked up the paint from Ace Hardware.
Up at 7am today and preping the truck by 9am, I was a little conserned when it started snowing during my walk from the light rail to work, I decided to wing it and get this project done. By 2pm, I had the OK from the previouse owner. It took 5 cans of "Sand" to get the cab painted, and two cans of black for the tubes. It may not be a Proffitt's Cruisers paint job, but i'm really happy with how it turned out.

This was done for the roof rack that will be put on at the end of the month by the Homegrown Crew

Here are some pics, sorry for the quality, I forgot my camera (I'm not a morning person)

Randy and Ricardo, Many thanks!!!!

P.S: My finger is numb, and should I paint the Diamond Plate?

Perry I have to complain a little here. We can't have two Yellow 4runners in the club

I painted mine in the garage last year before Cruise Moab and yes my finger was numb for two weeks too. Who do you think gave Randy the idea to paint his rig??

I guess since you painted it already you can leave it the way it is, it does look good And don't paint the diamond plate, it peals pretty easy.
Thanks T aka Tom KR0MPS
