A $128 DIY Paint Job Can Actually Look Good – Here’s How It’s Done

We hate to be the bearer of bad news. However, “cheap” and “good” are two things that rarely ever go together.

In most cases, if something is cheap, there’s a good reason for it. Every once in awhile, though, we stumble upon some sort of process or maybe a product that can combine the two seamlessly. It turns out that the more effort you’re willing to invest into something, the more likely it is for cheap and good to come together in unison. This is especially true in the world of laying down a sweet paint job.

This time, we check out an individual who decided to try and combine the two through the means of such a paint job. The canvas in question this time is none other than an old Ford F-150. While the truck was in good condition aside from the lack of paint, it didn’t seem as if a paint job by professionals was justified to this owner.

Therefore, he decided to start prepping to do it all himself!

Spending just $128, Griff Parker would head out and source Rustoleum paint with a $15 Harbor Freight sprayer and a couple of other materials. Before he knew it, it was time to spray and the truck was turning white in front of our eyes. When all was said and done, from this angle, it actually looks pretty good. At the end of the day, a video camera can tell a million lies but what can you ask for with such a price tag?

By following along with the video below, we can see how it’s all done for ourselves. Do you think that this is something that looks like it’s worth the effort? At the end of the day, with a price tag like that, it’s pretty hard to go wrong!
