Sand, sand, and sand some more. This truck was a ranch truck and then was run into a guardrail, so there were plenty of dents to go around. Every time we thought we had it good enough to paint and had it set up to paint, the temperature would drop and it would snow. Higher humidity and lower temperatures both conspire to make the paint take longer to cure, making recoat times a crap shoot. Instead of rolling the dice, every time we got a snow delay we decided to go over the truck again.
