My cousin wants his 55 Ford pickup painted with candy paint. I have personally never shot candy paint and I'm looking for advice. I have read up on it and it seems pretty straight forward, but figured I would check with those who are more experienced. It's going candy apple red.


What concerns should I be worried about? Can I jam and paint the pickup as a whole, or will I have issues with the jammed areas matching the painted exterior. I'm not sure I have room to set the bed up in the booth with the pickup and all the parts on separate stands. I also need to paint the inside of the cab. What amount of paint will I need, I'm thinking two gallons?

Thanks in advance!
