I think there's a difference between fixing up a truck and making it pretty with paint. Dunno about you, but when I restored my 77, I dropped 7k in paint...an investment I'd like to protect. 9 years later, there are only two chips in the paint from road debris, and I intentionally don't take it areas where a door can swing in to it or a shopping cart can be pushed in to it. If you have a rig that you plan on using more frequently than the occassional cruise or show, no real point in dropping much, if any coin into paint if there's still complete coverage.

I've moved the off-topic paint discussion to its own thread in the Paint and Bodywork sub-forum.

Morons with shopping carts and car doors, gotta hate 'em especially when they're driving boat anchor BMW's and Mercedes Benzs and other assorted Euro trash cars. What I do when I park in those lots I park way out in outer Mongolia or BF Egypt and park like I m parking an Extended Hood Peterbilt 379 truck, and taking multiple spaces with my Dent, my favorite is parking is
four spaces with a wheel in each space, I have told that I park like an $$$$$$$, well when you have a sweet looking 78 F-150 Ranger Lariat, like I have, or any good looking Dent you have that tendency to be that when parking, and I have had people tell me that they couldn't blame me for parking like that, I even park like that at church even when I drive my Dent on Sundays.
