I'm sure you can roll any paint if you thin it, sand it, and repeat enough times.

Which paint? The one in the link I posted? Read through his website. He has updates of how the paint handled time and abuse. Check the 3 year update. Pretty impressive.

You'll have strong arms when you're finished from all of the sanding.

What prep work have you done to the truck? You'll need to sand the clear coat off before you put paint on. Dents? Rust?

Paint will look good. Prep work will make it look great.


...another alternative. Go to Youtube and search for "plastidip car". No prep work needed. If you don't like it, you just peel it off.

Here's one site that sells it, but shop around. You can find it cheaper. I've never done it before, but it has caught my interest enough that I have watched a bunch of how-to videos on Youtube. I suggest you do to before you buy it on impulse.

Plasidip looks pretty killer and the prep is super easy.

I've used the plastidip spray that comes in rattle cans. I used it to recoat the faded plastic trim along the bottom of my bumper. It looks great, and holds up to a pressure washer at 1ft away. I do not recommend the rattle cans for an entire car.
