    Well my good friend found this on the IH8MUD forum, http://www.rickwrench.com/50dollarpaint.html , and decided since his 95 Land Cruiser had plenty of scratches he would try it. So, when I heard using a roller I pushed him into it. Here are some pics of the first few steps taken so far. Hope you guys and gals enjoy!

    The top is going to be white and the rest he wants some type of sand color, so when he said rattle can a spot, I said lets do your hood!!!!

    He is rolling the top and going to have someone else spray the rest, unless the the top comes out good, which so far it is(SHOCKED), he will roll the rest of it on himself!!!

    Oh yeah! I will be watching this one! Especially since my bestfriend may be giving me back my 98' Jetta TDI (he broke the timing belt, and doesn't have time to fix it).

    I made a mistake it's not an 05 but a 95. I'll edit that.

    Wow! That Land Cruiser must be driven through brush all the time. This will be a very interesting story to monitor. The corvair looks pretty sharp.
