Making it shiny

In between running errands, supervising the new house project, and managing the crew I spent a bunch of time with a paint brush in my hand. I was working on the Coastal Enterprises display truck. I started with primer, using a small brush to purposely add just a little more texture. This is a work truck after all. When the primer was dry I laid on the base colors, double coating the black and triple coating the metallic green for a little extra sparkle. These paint coats were allowed to dry. Then I came in with the metallic silver and laid on the bling.


Last was the interior paint.



Tomorrow I'll buy the materials to build a sturdy shipping crate and it will soon be off to the international sign show in Las Vegas which is attended by more than 20,000 people from around the world.
