    Default Cleaned Up Rusty Bed

    I got tired of looking at the rust in my Deuces bed so I wire brushed it and painted it.
    Looks a lot better now. I used an Majic brand olive drab camouflage oil base paint from Family Farm and Home Store. Going to do seats next.

    Looks good, but, next thing you'll need is a complete frame off redo!!

    I'm just guessing, it's rolled on, picture #3 shows roller trails.

    All I did was wire brush the bed and yes I used a roller. The marks you see are wet paint. Underneath of bed is rusted pretty bad so I did not want to do anything major in cleaning it before painting. Hope to replace bed if I find a good one that I can afford.

    Looks good. I used the same brand and color of paint on the inside of my m1009 blazer to serve as a temporary rust stopper until I can get a proper coat of paint on the entire vehicle. I really like how its holding up to wear and the various chemicals I spilled inside the back compartment.

    Looks much better. I'm tempted to do mine but I know with all the junk I store and bring to shows in the back of the deuce, it would be a matter of months before it looked the same again.
