    I used Nason all the way. Nason single stage on the Bottom and Nason base and clear on the sides and top. Sprayed out real nice ,is forgiving and the clear laid ouf real nice and flat, with no orange peal. I was satisfied and the cost was 1/3 of the others....Hal

    Very nice paint. Some drop shadows and striping and call it a day. Did you cap it or still using rub rail?

    Thanks guys, im gona have a guy come out and do some pin striping but its gona be with the same color. I like the sharp, clean, edgy look. I capped the sides to get rid of the rub rail.
    I justified it by rub rail costing above 200 bucks or cap it with no cost just my time.
